Paraguayan side Libertad advanced to the third round of Copa Libertadores qualification on Wednesday evening by thrashing Bolivian side, The Strongest, 5-1 (6-2 on aggregate). But the highlights of the night didn’t come until well into the second half.

First, former Benfica and Paraguay star Oscar Cardozo scored from the halfway line, and then Ayrton Cougo, in the 90th minute, fired home a wicked, bending strike with the outside of his left boot. The Copa Libertadores always brings the golazos.
