LIMA (Reuters) – Alianza Lima won the Peruvian league on Sunday for the first time in 11 years after a 0-0 draw with Comerciantes Unidos gave them the point they needed to clinch the title. The result meant they finished three clear of second-placed Cultural Universidad Tecnica. It was Alianza’s fifth Apertura title in their 116-year history and guaranteed them a place in next year’s Copa Libertadores, South America’s equivalent of the Champions League.
