SAO PAULO — Underdogs Colón of Argentina and Independiente del Valle of Ecuador will play the Copa Sudamericana final Nov. 9 in Asunción.

The Argentinians reached the decider of the second-most prestigious South American club tournament after beating Brazil's Atlético Mineiro 4-3 on penalties.

Regular time in Belo Horizonte ended in a 2-1 victory for the Brazilian hosts, the same score of a week earlier in favor of the tiny Argentinian side from Santa Fé.

Del Valle advanced Wednesday after a 2-2 draw in Quito with Brazilian favorites Corinthians. The Ecuadorians won their away match in Sao Paulo 2-0.

Both clubs will play for their first South American trophy.

The winner of the Copa Sudamericana will take a spot in next year's prestigious Copa Libertadores.
