Allstate Save of the Game: Victor Garcia, Alianza (60’)
Nobody ever said it was going to be easy for El Salvador’s Alianza to advance to the 2017 Scotiabank CONCACAF League quarterfinals. On Tuesday night, in a Round of 16, second-leg encounter, visiting Platense did what it could to overturn to a 2-1 deficit from the opener. Alianza went ahead 2-1 in the opening 30 minutes, extending its aggregate lead to 4-2. Platense, however, was making a second-half charge. At the hour mark, Oscar Medina tried to bring the Honduran side to within a goal, but his attempt was denied by goalkeeper Victor Garcia for the Allstate Save of the Game. There was no more scoring and Alianza progressed in front of the home crowd at the Estadio Cuscatlan.
