Corinthians sealed its place in the Copa Libertadores final with a 1-1 second-leg draw against Santos. Though Santos couldn't overturn its 1-0 deficit from the first leg despite a goal from Neymar, it was able to make one Corinthians ball boy pay.
While chasing down a ball that had gone out, Santos midfielder Adriano wanted to make sure the ball boy didn't get his hands on it and slow down the visitors' comeback attempt, so Adriano shoved him. The ball boy hit the cement and play was halted while personnel checked on him, but he seemed to be fine and later said that he wouldn't file a formal complaint against Adriano.
