The victory was achieved even in the first half, when Alan Patrick (from penalty kick) and Luiz Adriano opened 2-0 for Colorado. O centroavante, aliás, deu fim a um jejum de 13 jugos sem balançar los nets.
From the start it seemed that it would be easy for the gaucho time, but the Metropolitans counted out with Freddy Vargas not starting the final stage, after four minutes.
The Venezuelans, then, will put a lot of pressure on Inter, who counted on great defenses from goalkeeper John to guarantee victory.
