Newellâ€™s 2-0 Atletico
Atletico 2-0 Newellâ€™s
Atletico won 3-2 on penalties
Ronaldinho, Bernard and team-mates came from behind to win in a Round of 16 and a quarter-finals, though few fanciful them to retreat a 2-0 detriment to Gabriel Heinze, Maxi Rodriguez, Ignacio Scocco and Co with a away-goals order in operation. Bernard gave them a drifting start in Belo Horizonte, following a defence-decrypting through-ball from Ronaldinho, though entering a sixth notation of second-half damage time for a Argentinians seemed to have left and right there. After Guilhermeâ€™s pretentious strike took it to penalties, however, and Newellâ€™s had missed dual cracks during holding a lead in a shoot-out, goalkeeper Victor denied Rodriguez to send O Galo through.
Upshot: Atletico outlasted Olimpia in a final â€“ naturally, after losing a initial leg 2-0, scoring a last-gasp leveller and triumphing on penalties â€“ to book a excursion to a FIFA Club World Cup, where, notwithstanding dual monumental Ronaldinho free-kicks, they could usually finish third.
