MEXICO CITY - Two headed goals in quick
succession midway through the second half put Internacional
within touching distance of the Libertadores Cup after a 2-1
away win over Guadalajara on Wednesday.
The Mexican side took the lead on the stroke of halftime in
the first leg of the final at their Omnilife stadium with a
header by Mexico international Adolfo Bautista.
But striker Giuliano and defender Bolivar replied to put
the Brazilians on the verge of their second title. Inter won
South America's premier club trophy in 2006.
Inter had been wary of Guadalajara's synthetic pitch but
their man-of-the-match Andres D'Alessandro said: "We did well
on a pitch that we said was no excuse for not playing our usual
"We went out to play as equals and luckily we got an away
victory which is always important. But it's still 50-50. The
Chivas (Guadalajara) play well as visitors so we've got to be
very careful," he told Fox Sports.
The return leg is next Wednesday at Inter's Beira-Rio
stadium in the southern Brazilian city of Porto Alegre.
