The first step towards a dream Copa Sudamericana matchup (at least for Mexican soccer fans) is well underway.
America beat Vasco da Gama 2-0 in Estadio Azteca while Chivas tied Arsenal de Sarandi 0-0 in Argentina.
For America, a pair of America veterans hooked up for the first goal as German Villa set up Duilio Davino for a goal. The match also kicked off the Daniel "Ruso" Brailovsky era triumphantly.
Chivas, meanwhile, got a somewhat positive result. Against DC United, Chivas lost the first leg but still won the series with a 1-0 home win. A similar result against Arsenal in Estadio Jalisco would do the trick.
