Soccer-Atletico win shootout to reach Sudamericana semis

Updated: 01-11-2018 08:55 IST
Atletico Paranaense beat Bahia in a shootout to qualify for the semi-finals of the Copa Sudamericana on Wednesday after their all-Brazilian tie ended 1-1 over two legs.

Defender Douglas Grolli got the only goal of the game for visitors Bahia just seconds before half-time to level the tie in a tournament that is considered South America's equivalent of UEFA's Europa League.

The home side were dominant in the shootout, however, winning it 4-1.

Atletico will play Fluminense in the semis after the Rio de Janeiro club's victory over Nacional of Uruguay earlier in the day.

In the other semi-final, Colombian side Santa Fe will meet the winner of Thursday's tie between Argentina's Defensa y Justicia and Colombia's Junior.
