Allstate Save of the Game: Victor Garcia, Alianza (80')
If teams were awarded wins based on the number of spectacular denials by their goalkeepers, then Alianza would be at the top of any table. Once again, the Albos’ Victor Garcia was in irresistible form against host Olimpia on Thursday in the second leg of their 2017 Scotiabank CONCACAF League quarterfinal series. After a string of special stops throughout the evening, Garcia made his best in the 80th minute. Olimpia’s Brayan Moya drilled a right-footed effort from outside the box through a crowd of defenders. At the absolute last second, Garcia saw the ball and palmed it over the crossbar. The score at that time was 2-1 in favor of Olimpia, which eventually netted late in stoppage time to win 3-1 and advance to the semifinals, 3-2 on aggregate.
