Argentina`s Lanus win Copa Sudamericana football
Buenos Aires: Argentina`s Lanus defeated Brazil`s Ponte Preta 2-0 to win the Copa Sudamericana football final 3-1 on aggregate.
Ismael Blanco scored the opener on the stroke of halftime Wednesday before Paraguay international midfielder Victor Ayala struck the home team`s second in the 69th minute, reports Xinhua.
Wednesday`s result followed a 1-1 draw in last week`s first leg in Sao Paulo, ensuring Lanus their first international trophy.
