The Newell's Old Boys boss has said that he is extremely happy with the start made by his team in the Copa Libertadores group stages. The Argentine side were taking on the Paraguayan Olimpia the first group match of the Copa Libertadores.
Newell's Old Boys managed to register a 3-1 victory in the match. It was definitely not an easy encounter for the favourites – Newell's Old Boys, as they struggle to take the chances that came their way until the 69th minute. The penalty from Scocco finally gave the lead they were playing for during the first half break.
The chances of Newell's Old Boys winning the title this season appear to be fading fast after they were involved in a 2-2 draw with their opponents Union Santa Fe. Even though a 2-2 draw looks extremely bad in the context of the match and the title race, it could have gone even bad for them.
Newell's Old Boys have to come back from two goals down after they conceded two early goals in the match. They were going into the half-time break trailing the match 2-0, and it could have gone even worse had it not been for the brilliant comeback in the second half.
