Fluminense advances after draw with Flamengo

Fluminense advanced to the next round of the Copa Sudamericana after drawing fellow Brazilian team Flamengo 1-1 on Wednesday.
The teams drew their first-leg match 0-0 on Aug. 12.
Although both matches were held at the Maracana stadium, Fluminense was considered the away team on Wednesday and had the advantage of away goals, meaning it advances to the round of 16 to face either Venezuela's Deportivo Anzoategui or Peru's Alianza Atletico.
Fluminense striker Roni opened the scoring in the 45th minute with penalty awarded after Flamengo defender Ronaldo Angelim fouled forward Kieza.
Flamengo striker Denis Marques equalized in the 60th minute after outrunning several Fluminense players to reach the area and send fire the ball into the net.
