Balza: "Not many teams can play this way against Real Garcilaso"

Deportivo La Guaira's number 10 was alert to score the goal which sent his team into the next round.

The goal which an entire country celebrated. Deportivo La Guaira were losing 2-0 and, as such, were on the verge of being eliminated from Phase 1 of the CONMEBOL Libertadores. But they scored the goal they needed in the final seconds thanks to Balza. "It's very difficult due to the altitude. Not many teams can come here and play this way against Real Garcilaso, who are a great team. Thanks to god I was given this opportunity and I could score the goal which saw us qualify," commented the #BestOfTheMatch.

"It was very emotional. They were on top of us, they were at home, with their fans, with the altitude, but we knew how to keep calm and the goal arrived."
