Corinthians reaches Copa Libertadores final
SAO PAULO (AP) -Corinthians has reached the Copa Libertadores final for the first time by holding defending champion Santos to a 1-1 draw on Wednesday and winning the semifinal 2-1 on aggregate.
Corinthians had beaten their fellow Brazilian club 1-0 last week in Santos.
Neymar scored for Santos in the 36th minute, putting the semifinal level on aggregate, scoring from close range after Borges' shot struck the far post and rebounded back toward the striker near the goal line.
Danilo scored the decisive goal for Corinthians in the 48th with a shot from the six-meter line after a free-kick cross by midfielder Alex.
Corinthians will face either six-time champion Boca Juniors of Argentina or Universidad de Chile, who play Thursday in Chile.
