SAO-PAULO (AP) – Brazilian “Athletics” and “Palmeiras” drew 2-2 on Wednesday night in the first match of the final of the Recopo Sudamericano in Curitiba. The return match will take place next week in Sao Paulo.
Athletics is the latest winner of the Sudamericana Cup, and Palmeiras took over last year’s Libertadores Cup.
Athletics opened the scoring with David Theron in the 19th minute. Palmeiras equalized nine minutes later at Gileson’s goal. The hosts took the lead again in the 76th minute with Marlas. The visitors equalized from the point in extra time with Rafael Veiga.
Both teams have yet to win the Rekop Sudamerican. Palmeiras, who also won the 2020 Libertadores Cup, lost to last year’s Argentine Recopa Defense and Justice.
