São Paulo crowned Copa Libertadores champions
Thursday, July 14, 2005
São Paulo has won the Copa Libertadores de América competition, beating Atlético Paranaense in the second round of the Final match at home with a score of 4-0. The first round between the Brazilian teams was drawn 1-1 at Atletico's stadium.
Amoroso opened the scoring for Sao Paolo in the 17th minute. On the 45th minute, as the game approached half time, Atletico were awarded a controversial penalty, however, fate would fall Sao Paolo's way as Atletico missed their chance to draw the game level.
Fabao scored a wonder goal for Sao Paolo in the 53rd minute to make it 2-0, and by now, Atletico seemed out of it.
Luizao & Diego Tardelli completed the 4-0 drubbing late on, in what could have been a momentous night for Atletico, turned horribly wrong.
Sao Paolo came out winners and are crowned South American champions for the 2004/2005 season. Sao Paolo will go on to face Liverpool later this year to decide the World Club Championship. Liverpool is this season's European champions.
