Corinthians shocker

After drawing the first leg 0-0, they went down 2-0 in the second, meaning they miss out on qualification for the group stage of a competition they have never won before.

Forward Ronaldo said: “We didn’t play well. The pitch also didn’t help our team. It’s inadmissible that the Conmebol (South American Confederation) accept such a field. But that isn’t an excuse, our team really weren’t good in either leg.”
