Peru Primera: Garcilaso 3 Universitario 2

Alfredo Ramua's late goal gave Real Garcilaso a hard-fought 3-2 win over Universitario in the first leg of the Primera Division play-off.

The Argentine forward struck just two minutes from time at the Estadio Municipal de Espinar to ensure Garcilaso will take a slender advantage into next Sunday's second leg in Lima.

Fredy Garcia's Garcilaso - who went into the game boasting an unbeaten home streak of 22 matches in the Primera Division - flew out of the traps and were ahead inside three minutes through Cesar Ortiz.

Victor Ferreira doubled the hosts' advantage on the stroke of half-time, before Raul Ruidiaz begun Universitario's fightback with a 68th-minute penalty.

Uruguayan striker Sebastian Fernandez looked to have earned the visitors a valuable 2-2 draw when he struck 11 minutes later.

However, Ramua had the final say to ensure 2012 runners-up Garcilaso go into the second leg in pole position to seal their maiden Primera Division title.
