Copa Sudamericana: Millonarios 3 Gremio 1 (agg 3-2)

Millonarios advanced to the semi-finals of the Copa Sudamericana thanks to a last-gasp penalty against Gremio on Thursday.

The Colombian outfit were facing elimination on the away goals rule with seconds remaining but Wason Renteria’s dramatic spot-kick handed Millonarios a 3-1 victory on the night and a 3-2 triumph on aggregate.

Gremio went into Thursday’s match with a one-goal advantage courtesy of their 1-0 home win over a fortnight ago and they netted a crucial away goal just 13 minutes into the game.

Defender Werley hit the back of the net to hand the Brazilian’s a 2-0 aggregate lead.

The scores would remain unchanged up until the hour-mark when Wilberto Cosme scored.

Cosme’s goal levelled proceedings on the night but Millonarios still trailed 2-1 on aggregate.

Renteria then put the hosts ahead with less than nine minutes remaining – his third goal in three outings.

Gremio were still ahead on away goals but the former Sporting Braga man sent the home fans into raptures after bagging his second goal – a decisive 94th-minute penalty.

Millonarios will face Tigre for a place in final against either Sao Paulo or Universidad Catolica.
