Paraguayan side have two players sent off for fighting each other

Paraguayan side Club General Diaz endured a distinctly mixed evening in the Copa Sudamericana on Wednesday evening, running out as 4-3 aggregate winners over Chile's Cobresal despite finishing the second-leg tie with just eight men left on the pitch.

Indeed, General Diaz were reduced to nine men after just 37 minutes, when defensive pair Gustavo Toranzo and Angel Vera were shown simultaneous straight reds for "fighting" with one another -- not that the confrontation ever really moved past the "mild squabble" stage.

General Diaz then also had Cristian Soza dismissed midway through the second half, but Cobresal ultimately failed to make their whopping three-man advantage count and were eventually dumped out of the tournament by their heavily depleted opponents.
