Internacional 2-2 Corinthians
Corinthians win 4-2 on aggregate
Corinthians became the first Brazilian club to qualify for the 2010 Copa Santander Libertadores after being picking up the Copa Do Brasil in Porto Alegre on Wednesday night. Already 2 up from the first leg a fortnight before the visitors witheld a fightback to claim the trophy. Although to be honest, the tie was over by half time. Corinthians were already two up through Jorge Henrique's header and André Santos powerful left foot strike in front of a large travelling support
Internacional were not ready to give up though and struck back in the second half when Alecsandro struck twice within 5 second half minutes. The first came after a deflection fell kindly and he nudged it past Felipe in the Corinthians goal. The second a header from 12 yards which went in off the post. The game though finished with some pretty disgraceful scenes and a couple of dismissals. First D'Alessandro was sent off for Internacional with 15 minutes left before Elias went for Conrinthians 6 minutes from time.
It's Corinthians third victory in five final appearances and their first since 2002
