    Deportivo Quito Hold Cruzeiro In Injury Time

    Post by Ali Swaidan on Thu Feb 26, 2009 6:05 pm



    Deportivo Quito were seconds away from falling at home in Ecuador to Cruzeiro, but Giovanny Caicedo appeared in injury-time to give his side a share of the points.
    With the result, Cruzeiro continue to lead the group, with four points, two more than Quito. They are followed by Universitario, with one point, and Estudiantes de La Plata, with no points.
    Cruzeiro, who thrashed Estudiantes 3-0 last week, started the stronger of the two sides, and they came close to going ahead with efforts from Jonathan and Wagner in the first 25 minutes.
    After much pressure, Cruzeiro finally broke the deadlock in the 39th minute, with a powerful Ramires header from a free kick.
    The Brazilians were completely on top of their game at this point, but Wellington Paulista's sending off three minutes before half-time seriously affected them in the second period.
    But soon after the restart Quito defender Luis Checa was dismissed, and so was Fabricio of Cruzeiro.
    The numerical advantage seemed to motivate the Ecuadorians as they searched for a late equaliser. And it finally arrived in injury time, when Caicedo connected to a dangerous cross with a well-placed header.
    Deportivo Quito and the sparse 15,000 home crowd celebrated the late draw as if it were a victory, as they were completely dominated by the Belo Horizonte club.

    It wasn't a great night for Brazilian teams in the Copa Libertadores, as Gremio were held to a goalless draw by Universidad de Chile in front of 40,000 fans in Porto Alegre.
