Cruzeiro moved into the Copa Libertadores knockout stage after a win against Racing Club.

Lucas Silva helped Cruzeiro seal their spot in the Copa Libertadores last 16 with a 2-1 win over Racing Club Tuesday.

Silva added to Thiago Neves' early opener as Cruzeiro progressed from Group 5 courtesy of their win in Belo Horizonte.

Neves swept home a third-minute goal before the hosts doubled their lead through Silva, who is on loan from Real Madrid.

The 25-year-old won possession high up the pitch before firing in a fine effort from 25 yards.
