Gremio beats Tucuman 2-0 in Leg 1 of Libertadores QF

Buenos Aires, Sep 18 (efe-epa).- Brazil's Gremio, champion of the 2017 Copa Libertadores, Tuesday made a 2-0 victory against Argentina's Atletico Tucuman in the Leg 1 of the Copa Libertadores quarter finals with goals by Alisson and Soares.

Buenos Aires, Sep 18 (efe-epa).- Brazil's Gremio, champion of the 2017 Copa Libertadores, Tuesday made a 2-0 victory against Argentina's Atletico Tucuman in the Leg 1 of the Copa Libertadores quarter finals with goals by Alisson and Soares.

At 35 minutes Alisson opened the scoreboard with 1-0 at a time when the home team appeared to be playing its best game.

The scoreboard once again turned in the Brazilian's favor when Alisson kicked the ball into the net following an assist from Alisson after a counterattack.

Tucuman came out with its classic 4-4-2, with two defensive midfielders and two offensives.

Gremio, on the other hand, preferred a dynamic formation, with midfielders and forwards alternating the areas of the field they occupied.

At four minutes Tucuman's Ricardo Noir suffered a muscular injury and had to be replaced by Gervasio Nuñez.

But Gremio's first goal at 35 minutes came during the best playing moments of Tucuman during the match with Alisson making a defined strong goal after a header in the area.

Ten minutes later the night became more complicated for the home team when Nuñez was given the red card for stepping on an opponent who was lying on the floor.

In the second half Gremio quickly extended the advantage and reached the 2-0 thanks to Soares.

From that moment on the match went back and forth, with rapid transitions in the middle of the field and several dangerous moves from both teams.

Three minutes before match end Soares had a ball to hand moment with Tucuman's goalkeeper Cristian Lucchetti but unfortunately his shot went wide.
