Gremio beats Millonarios 1-0 in Copa Sudamericana

Marco Antonio scored with a header off a corner in the first

half to lead Gremio to a 1-0 win over Millonarios of Colombia in

the quarterfinals of the Copa Sudamericana on Tuesday.

The Brazilian club can reach the semifinals of the South

American competition with a draw in the second leg on Nov. 15 in

Colombia.

Gremio, coached by Vanderlei Luxemburgo, controlled possession

from the start and had most of the scoring chances at the Olimpico

Stadium.

Marco Antonio easily scored from close range off a corner taken

by World Cup veteran playmaker Ze Roberto in the 37th minute.

Gremio midfielder Leo Gago struck the post with a low shot in

the 76th and striker Andre Lima had a goal disallowed because of

offside in the 90th.
