Atlas, who won 0-1 on Thursday at home to Pumas, dominated their stadium but lacked strength and in the second half Argentine Juan Dinino took advantage of a mistake by Colombian goalkeeper Camilo Vargas and gave his team the victory.
With group 1-1, Atlas, led by Argentine Diego Coca, reached the final for the best position in the standings table in the regular stage.
As happened last Thursday in the first leg that they won on the ground of their opponents, Atlas was better; He dominated the appearance on the flank and kept the defense fortified.
Although Atlas assured the integrity of his defense, Argentine Julio Verch and Colombian Julian Quinones frequently approached the area defended by goalkeeper Alfredo Talavera.
Forsh, Quinones and Jairo Torres caused danger, but they could not turn, while Pumas only appeared in the 41st minute, when Brazilian Diogo de Oliveira climbed into the area and shot from outside.
In the second half, Quiñones accepted a ball from Furch and left an opportunity to open the scoring, at 58; The Colombian sustained an ankle injury and left the field 10 minutes later.
Suddenly Atlas fell into position, gave a corner kick, and in the 77th minute, Vargas, perhaps the best goalkeeper of the season, left a rebound, which Dinino recovered to put the ball into the net and score 0-1, which tied the Italian league.
Forch reached the goal alone and shot poorly, in 78, adding to the tension of the match because although Atlas had a place in the 1-1 final, Pumas was one goal away from qualifying with 12 minutes to play.
The Pumas family grew and created danger at 82 with a shot from outside Ecuadorean Washington Coruso.
Controversy dominated the party. Peruvian Anderson Santamaria dropped Dinino in the area and did not award the penalty kick. The Argentine recovered from a nosebleed, but was sent off at the time of the substitution by hitting Jesus Angolo in the face, in a Chilean attempt.
With one less man on the field, Pumas went on to achieve the miracle. Atlas planted so well and kept the score he went to the final that he would play Lyon, who eliminated UANL Tigres, also for a better position in the regular stage table, after 3-3.
