Gioania:

Chile's Union Espanola was eliminated from the Copa Libertadores after a 0-0 draw against Brazil's Goias on Wednesday. Goias finished atop Group 3 with 11 points, three more than Union Espanola and Argentina's Newell's Old Boys. Newell's, which beat Bolivia's The Strongest 2-0 in Argentina, advanced on better goal difference. The top two teams from each of the eight groups qualify to the second round. Union Espanola needed to beat Goias to secure its spot in the next stage. A draw would have been enough if Newell's hadn't defeated The Strongest. (AP)
