Deportivo Cali beat Lanus to top Libertadores group

Cali (Colombia), March 14: Colombia’s Deportivo Cali rallied from behind to beat Argentina’s Lanus 2-1 and move top of their Copa Libertadores football group.

Carlos Lizarazo scored a 74th-minute winner at Estadio Deportivo Cali Thursday night after John Viafara netted on the hour mark to cancel out Lautaro Acosta’s first-half opener, reports Xinhua.

“We needed this win more than ever because in the local tournament (Colombia’s domestic league) we aren’t playing well and we hope this will help us get back on track,” Viafara said after the match.

Deportivo Cali lead Group-three with six points from three matches while Lanus are last with just a point.
