First-half penalties give Colo Colo the edge

SANTIAGO, Nov 16 (Reuters) - Colo Colo scored from two first-half penalties to beat Toluca 2-1 at home in the first leg of their Copa Sudamericana semi-final on Thursday.

Striker Humberto Suazo converted the first for the Chileans in the 14th minute after Gonzalo Fierro was upended by Toluca goalkeeper Hernan Cristante as he latched on to Matias Fernandez's incisive through pass.

The burly Suazo, the competition's topscorer, took his total to eight in the competition.

Fernandez capped another inspirational performance when he converted the second in the 32nd minute, his seventh goal of the tournament, after another foul on Fierro.

In between, Argentine striker Bruno Marioni replied for the Mexicans in the 24th minute with a deflected shot.

Toluca had defender Migual Almazan sent off in the 80th minute for kicking the ball at an opponent who had gone down injured.

Colo Colo were serving the first game of a two-match home ban in the competition after a visiting player was hit by a lump of concrete thrown from the crowd during their quarter-final at home to Gimnasia-La Plata.

However, the ban did not make the slightest difference as, under the rules, Colo Colo were able to simply move to the nearby National Stadium where they were backed by a fervent 60,000 crowd.
