Unión avoid upset with penalty win over Nueva Chicago in Copa Argentina (VIDEO)


This year’s Copa Argentina has already claimed its fair share of shocks but Unión ensured that they weren’t another with a penalty victory over Nacional B side Nueva Chicago in Banfield.

After a goalless 90 minutes of few clear chances, the tie was forced into a shootout and as the Primera club held their nerve, Chicago choked. Two costly misses left Lucas Gamba to slot in the winner and set up a last 32 clash with Lanús.
