A wild goal was witnessed during the semi-final match between Atlético Morelia and Celaya in Mexico’s Liga de Expansion. Trailing 1-2 in the second leg and 2-3 on aggregate, Atletico Morelia was trying to score an equalizer during stoppage time. During a desperate attempt, their goalkeeper Santiago Ramirez took a shot from his own penalty area, and to everyone’s amazement, the ball went past the opposition’s goalkeeper Allison Revuelta. Revuelta had gone up to the opposition’s box to double his team’s lead and put the game to bed. Santiago Ramirez scores a length-of-the-pitch goal(Twitter)
During a cross from one of the Celaya teammates inside Atletico Morelia’s penalty area, their goalkeeper Ramirez caught it with ease and made a run towards the unguarded goal. He seized the opportunity and kicked with all of his power, scoring a wild length-of-the-pitch goal as the ball bounced twice in the penalty area on its way in. The goal sparked crazy scenes at the away end as Atletico Morelia booked their berth in the tournament final with a 4-2 aggregate victory.
The game between these sides was chaotic as five red cards were issued, with two for Celaya and three for Atletico Morelia. Morelia will play the first leg of the final against CD Tapatio on Wednesday.
The winner of the final will move on to face Atlante, who are the champions of the season-opening Apertura tournament, in the Champion of Champions final.
