Wednesday night’s match in the Copa Libertadores between Atlético Mineiro and Arsenal de Sarandi gave us a little bit of everything – beautiful goals, controversy and even some drama at the very end. It was a game that cemented the Brazilian side’s claim to be looked upon as one of the favourites now for this tournament. Atlético Mineiro have won 12 games in a row now and hold a 100% record in this year’s Copa Libertadores so far.
This encounter came as arguably the most entertaining match of the tournament as of yet (the inital fixture of this meeting also threw up a 2-5 scoreline but it was not spectacular). Enjoy the highlights of it below, with wonder goals from Ronaldinho and Arsenal’s Benedetto:
At the end of the match the Arsenal players clashed with the Brazilian riot police:
With the final matchday of the group stages up next, there will certainly be more drama to come before the shadow boxing rounds of the Copa Libertadores 2013 are over.
