***************************************
 Group Phase (two advance from each group):

   Group 2
 Guaran (Asuncin-PAR) 1-1 Deportivo Cuenca (ECU)
  [Osvaldo Daz 55' - Rodrigo Teixeira 2']
  Couldn't catch the goals anywhere.
  Guaran get a consolation point and Cuenca are through.

 Boca Juniors (B Aires-ARG) 3-0 Dep. Tchira (S Cristbal-VEN)
  [Martn Palermo 14' (PK), 64', Rodrigo Palacio 81']
  Palermo converted a PK (!) to put Boca ahead and scored
  with a beautiful overhead kick to mark his 200th goal for the
  club. Palacio completed a cross by Vargas to make it 3-0.

  Final standings: Boca 15; Cuenca 10; Tachira 9; Guaran 1.

   Group 3
 Nacional (Montevideo-URU) 3-1 Nacional (Asuncin-PAR)
  [Diego Arvalos 30' (OG), Sebastin Coates 80', Nicols
   Lodeiro 90' - Jorge N?ez 9']
  N?ez's header put him as lone topscorer with seven
  goals, but his team is eliminated already. Arvalos sliced
  a cross past his own 'keeper to equalize. Coates headed
  the Uruguayan team ahead and Lodeiro curled around
  Don from close range to finish the win.

 River Plate (B Aires-ARG) 3-0 Univ. San Martn (Lima-PER)
  [Gustavo Bou 17', Rubens Sambueza 42' (PK), Diego
   Barrado 60']
  River's kids ironically got the score River would need to
  qualify if they had held a draw in Asuncin last week. A
  nice crossing shot by Bou put the home team ahead,
  Sambueza added one from the spot and Barrado touched
  past the line after a goalmouth scramble generated by a
  corner kick.

  Final standings: Nacional-URU 14; U San Martn 8; River 7;
   Nacional-PAR 4.
