Cruziero ensured top spot in Group 7 of the Copa Libertadores on Wednesday, while Deportes Tolima scored a consolation win.

Cruziero ended their group stage efforts undefeated after a 3-0 away win at Estudiantes of Argentina in a match between two sides who had already progressed to the last 16.

With both sides having their focus on the next stage, it was the visitors who claimed an 11th minute lead through Thiago Ribeiro.

He was joined on the scoresheet by his strike partner Wallyson on the stroke of half-time, before Gilberto wrapped up the victory with his effort eight minutes from time.

The win propelled Cruzeiro to 10 points leaving them on top of the group after six matches, with Estudiantes second with eight points.

In the other group match, Colombian side Deportes Tolima ended their campaign on a positive note with a 2-0 win at Guarani of Paraguay.

Deportes, who stunned Brazilian giants Corinthians in the first round, hit the front four minutes into the second half thanks to Danny Santoya’s goal.

Luis Closa put the result beyond doubt with his goal 21 minutes before the conclusion of the match, the result was moot with both sides eliminated from the competition.
