Goalkeeper Victor was the hero for Atletico Mineiro after his last-minute penalty save ensured the Brazilians reached the last four of the Copa Libertadores following an away goals triumph over Tijuana.
The stopper deflected Duvier Riascos' penalty away to safety to secure a 1-1 draw. The two sides drew 3-3 on aggregate but thanks to Mineiro's two goals in Mexico it is they who will advance.
Riascos put the visitors ahead after 25 minutes, but 15 minutes later Rever levelled, with the visitors unable to add to their tally. Tijuana made a fast start and just 12 seconds into the game, Riascos' shot from outside the box was beaten away by Victor.
Risascos had his revenge however and following Richard Ruiz's cross the striker thundered a powerful volley into the net. Tijuana controlled the majority of the opening period and had several chances to double their lead.
However, nobody marked home defender Rever, who levelled the clash from a Ronaldinho corner five minutes before the break. Mineiro were defensive in the second period and were limited to long-range efforts, while Tijuana looked for that vital second goal.
Fidel Martinez played in Bruno Piceno, who failed to find the net when one-on-one with home goalkeeper Victor. Tijuana continued to pile forward and midfielder Fernardo Arce's header brushed the post and, minutes later, Arce's free kick crushed onto the crossbar.
However the real drama came in injury time when Leonardo Silva brought down Pablo Aguilar: penalty. Riascos had the chance the become the man of the match, but Victor saved with his leg and the crowded stadium exploited.
