Ponte Preta goalkeeper denies Gimnasia & El Lobo exit Copa Sudamericana (VIDEO)


After the goalless draw in Brazil back in April, Gimnasia needed a victory when Ponte Preta visited La Plata on Tuesday evening but goalkeeper Aranha had other ideas and despite the home side giving everything, it was the visitors that progressed on away goals after a 1-1 draw.

When Elton headed the Brazilian side ahead midway through the first half, Gustavo Alfaro’s side knew that two goals were required but after Fabián Rinaudo volleyed an almost instant reply, that didn’t look out of the question.

Gimnasia pushed forward and had countless chances, none better than one squandered by Brahian Alemán but ultimately it was the fine performance of Aranha that denied El Lobo.
