The final of the 2014 Copa Libertadores is on a knife’s edge following a 1-1 draw between Nacional and San Lorenzo in Asuncion, Paraguay.

Despite dominating large swaths of play, it took until the 65th minute for Mauro Matos to open the scoring for the guests. However, just as it looked as though the Argentinians were poised to take an aggregate lead in this two-legged affair, Julio Santa Cruz scored a late equaliser for Nacional.

There is no away-goals rule in this tie, which means both sides have it all to play for ahead of next week’s return fixture in Buenos Aires.

They will each have also learned a thing or two about their opponent at Estadio Defensores del Chaco, and the next few slides will highlight six of those lessons.
