1-0.  Paranaense beats the champion and takes advantage in the dispute to go to the final |  Sports Social Networks

Athletico Paranaense beat fellow Brazilian Palmeiras 1-0 on Tuesday, champion of the last two editions of the Copa Libertadores, and took advantage in the dispute for a place in the tournament final.

The team led by former Brazilian coach Luiz Felipe Scolari prevailed with a goal from Alex Santana in the 23rd minute and, despite suffering an expulsion in the 70th minute, knew how to defend that advantage in the second half, in which the São Paulo team pressed for the draw in the first leg of the Libertadores semifinals.
