Emmanuel Adebayor - Olimpia

The 36-year-old was given his marching orders as the Dean clinched a narrow victory in front of their own fans

Emmanuel Adebayor was sent off as Olimpia battled to a 2-1 win over Defensa y Justicia in Thursday’s CONMEBOL Libertadores game.

The former Arsenal and Manchester City striker was afforded his fourth appearance since joining the Paraguayan side on a free transfer last month.  

The Togo international, however, lasted for only 72 minutes in the match before he was given his marching orders after a serious foul play.

Despite the one-man short, the Dean were able to grab victory in the encounter with goals from Carlos Rolon and Brian Montenegro which rendered Marcelo Benitez’s late effort a consolation.  

Adebayor, who was given a heroic welcome on his arrival at Estadio Manuel Ferreira, is yet to open his goal account for the Paraguayan side.

The forward will hope to deliver better performance when Olimpia take on Sportivo Luqueno in their next league game on Saturday.
