How to win the 2015 Copa Sudamericana?
By Football Italia staff It was the biggest event in the Copa Südamericano, but for the first time, no-one won the tournament.
The final of the final will take place on Sunday (19:00 CET) at the Estadio Nacional, with both teams playing their final match on Sunday afternoon.
It was a game that was already in the books, with Vicente Sánchez de Lima winning the tournament with a 2-0 victory over Borussia Monchengladbach.
In a match that had been expected to feature the two sides for the last five years, this is the first chance for fans to get their first taste of the match in person.
“It’s a very important match for both sides and the last chance for the fans to see this team on the pitch,” said Luis Suarez of Monchendas last-16 opponent.
This match is a very good opportunity for both teams to show their quality, to show that they can compete with the best in Europe, and to show the fans why they have been so successful.
Monchenda has been on a roll in La Liga, winning their first three games of the season and securing a win in their first match of the tournament, away to Sevilla.
Their best result was in their home derby with Sevilla last September, a 2/0 win that secured the club their spot in the Europa League next season.
Boris Suarez, the man who started the tournament as the lone striker for Monchelde, was also impressive in his first game as a player.
His strike from 25 yards, assisted by Suarez, gave Sevilla a 1-0 lead and secured the 3-2 victory.
He was replaced by Sergio Ramos at half-time and it was then the turn of Victor Valdes, who scored the second goal for Monza, which was scored by the same man that scored the first goal.
Valdes was the last player to score a goal for the team and is now on a two-match scoring streak.
However, it was Monchelines last-16 opponents who got on the scoresheet, as Luis Suarez and Pepe Sanchez scored in the final minutes.
Sanchez had an early goal for Barcelona as the visitors took the lead through Diego Alves, before a spectacular free-kick from Monza was turned in by Suarez.
Suarez scored the final goal of the game, in particular the second one as he put the ball over the bar.
Luis Suarez will be the first player to win this tournament as a player since his career ended at the age of 23.
