Former Real Madrid manager Vanderlei Luxemburgo has been sacked for the second time this season after Cruzeiro confirmed his dismissal on Monday afternoon.

There were 1-0 wins for Emelec of Ecuador over Tigres of Mexico, Santa Fe of Colombia over Internacional of Brazil and for Guarani of Paraguay over Racing of Argentina. But Brazilian side Cruzeiro's 1-0 win over River Plate of Argentina has much more value. Cruzeiro were the away side. All the others were...
