A goalkeeper sent his side through to the quarter-finals of the Concacaf Champions League after scoring in the dying seconds of the knockout match.

Mexican side Tigres led Alianza 3-2 on the night of their second leg fixture, but required one more goal to progress on aggregate to the quarter-finals.

With just 20 seconds left of added time, goalkeeper Nahuel Guzman leapt to nod in the winning goal, sparking wild scenes in the Estadio Universitario in Mexico.

The 34-year-old Argentinian’s goal means Tigres will face New York City FC in the quarter-finals.

The Concacaf Champions League is a competition which includes the top sides from North America, Central America and the Caribbean.
