Paranaense, Junior Draw 1-1 in First Leg of Sudamericana Final

BARRANQUILLA, Colombia Ė Brazilís Atletico Paranaense clinched on Wednesday a valuable 1-1 draw in its match against Colombiaís Junior FC, which missed a penalty in the second half and lost the opportunity to take the lead in the first leg of the Copa Sudamericana final.

In the first half, despite Luis Diazís outstanding performance, Junior still had many difficulties in breaking the defense of Atletico led by central defenders Thiago Heleno and Leo Pereira.

During the second half, Atletico opened the scoring in the 51st minute with a precise counterattack started by Nikao and netted by Pablo Felipe Teixeira, making it his fourth goal of the tournament.

However, only two minutes later, Junior equaled the score with a shot from Yony Gonzalez that went straight past Atletico goalkeeper Santos.

With 20 minutes to go, referee Diego Haro awarded a penalty to Junior after forward Roni knocked down Marlon Piedrahita in the area.

However, Juniorís Rafael Perez missed the penalty shot against the Brazilians.

In the end, neither team managed to take a lead, and now the final will be decided in the second-leg match to be played on Dec. 12 in the Arena da Baixada stadium in Curitiba, Brazil.
