Copa Libertadores: Defensor Sporting drubs Brazil's Flamengo 3-0

Defensor Sporting drubbed Flamengo of Brazil 3-0 in the opening duel of the Copa Libertadores second round on Wednesday.
Alvaro Navarro scored in the fifth minute off a penalty kick and again in the 75th, sandwiching Alvaro Gonzalez's header goal three minutes after halftime.
Navarro's opening goal followed Flamengo defender Leo Moura's foul on Defensor striker Paulo Pezzolano before 10,000 fans at Centenario stadium.
Defensor controlled play in the opening 30 minutes as Flamengo reacted sluggishly. The Brazil side had its first good scoring chance in the 42nd when Defensor defender Martin Silva blocked a shot by Souza.
The two meet again next Wednesday in the return leg at Maracana in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
