Santos claim opening Libertadores win over Arsenal (VIDEO)

Darwin Quintero, Oribe Peralta

Santos began their first Copa Libertadores campaign with a narrow 1-0 win against Copa Argentina Champions, Arsenal de Sarandi. Before the game, Santos manager, Pedro Caixinha stressed the importance of the competition, and judging by his sides committed performance his view is shared by his players. Oribe Peralta’s first half goal was enough for the win but strike partner, Darwin Quintero should take enormous credit for the assist. These two will be a danger for any side in this year’s competition and despite some nervy moments last night it was a valuable win and a confidence booster ahead of the their next match in Uruguay against  Peñarol.
