Just one day before the completion of the Brasileirao, Yeferson Soteldo's Santos secured his ticket to the previous round of CONMEBOL Libertadores, where no less than Deportivo Lara will be measured.
The runner-up in the continental competition was positioned in eighth place in the classification table of the Brazilian championship, after equaling (1-1) with Fluminense, leaving Athletico Paranaense and Corinthians behind in the fight for qualification.
Soteldo entered in the 46th minute of the aforementioned commitment, and was in charge of distributing the assistance of the equalizer.
Santos will be Brazil 8 in the Cup, so they will face Deportivo Lara in Phase 2. Soteldo's team will play the first leg at home on March 9, while the return match will be played in Barquisimeto on March 16 .
