Messi's cousin earns Olimpia win

Paraguayan side Olimpia had Lionel Messi's cousin to thank for their Copa Libertadores Group Two victory over Argentina's Lanus.

The hosts had taken the lead in Asuncion through Vladimir Marin's free-kick but were pegged back in the 71st minute by defender Luciano Araujo's equaliser.

But Argentinian forward Maxi Biancucchi, the 27-year-old cousin of the Barcelona star, popped up 10 minutes from time to condemn his fellow countrymen to defeat.

Junior, from Colombia, hauled back a two-goal deficit against Universidad Catolica to earn a valuable point from their trip to Chile in Group Three.

Midfielder Felipe Gutierrez's quickfire first-half brace seemed to have put the home team in total command, but Vladimir Hernandez pulled a goal back seven minutes after half-time and Hector Quinones levelled on the hour to silence the home crowd.

The Strongest, with home advantage in Bolivia, came from behind to earn their second Group 11 victory against Juan Aurich.

Kevin Valencia put the Peruvian side ahead in the 21st minute, but Sebastian Gonzalez quickly levelled and Daniel Escobar's second-half strike earned The Strongest all three points.
