Atletico Mineiro got the defence of their Copa Libertadores off to the best possible start after claiming a 1-0 win over Venezuelan outfit Zamora last night, courtesy of a solitary strike by Brazil striker Jo after 88 minutes.

The Belo Horizonte side showed patience to unlock a stubborn defence and it was veteranRonaldinho who provided the assist for what proved to be the winning goal. With group rivals Santa Fe also recording a win, against Nacional Asuncion, Mineiro's three away points eases the pressure as defending champions immediately.

Brazilian site lancenet.com described Zamora as being "extremely limited" and that Atletico managed to hold 60% of possession througout the contest.

And of course, Jo proved a point by scoring, in that Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has stated that Fred will be his main striker come the World Cup this summer.
