Renato strikes treble, Envigo through
A hat-trick by Fabio Renato helped Ecuadorian side Liga de Loja book a berth in the Copa Sudamericana round-of-16 as they saw off Venezuela's Monagas 4-2 at home.
The Ecuadorian team showed no mercy with Monagas in the tie as they also won 2-0 win in Venezuela, a result which sets up a tie against Uruguayan giants Nacional. Brazilian striker Fabio Renato opened the scoring for Liga with a sixth-minute penalty.
Although Fernando Cabezas equalised in the 39th minute, Monagas' hopes were hit five minutes later when defender Antonio Boadas was sent off. Carlos Feraud put Liga ahead once more six minutes after the break, while Fabio Renato added two more in the 60th and 76th minutes.
Victor Renteria reduced the deficit for Monagas in the last minute of the game, following a cross by Pedro Lugo.
Colombian side Envigado saw off Peru's Union Comercio 2-0 at home. After a goalless first leg, Envigado took the lead in the sixth minute when Jamillacson Palacios profited from a defensive mistake to open the scoring. Defender Andres Orozco doubled the advantage in the 27th-minute with a header.
