Barranquilla, Nov 30 (IANS) Atletico Junior will play in their first international final in the 94-year history of the club after beating Independiente Santa Fe 1-0 in their semi-final second leg match at the Metropolitano Stadium here.

Junior will play Atletico Paranaense, who will also be seeking their first international title after losing the Copa Libertadores final against Sao Paulo in 2005, reports Efe news.

Junior on Thursday took advantage of the two goals they scored in the away match and confirmed their place in the final of the championship after being eliminated in the semi-finals last year by Brazil’s Flamengo.

Junior’s goal was scored by forward Teofilo Gutierrez, who was sent off at the end of the first half and will miss the upcoming final, along with Gabriel Fuentes, who was handed two yellow cards.
