Fabbro exits Copa Libertadores with wonder goal

Santos advanced to the Copa Libertadores final on Wednesday night, but Paraguayan side Cerro Porteno made them earn it. After winning the first leg 1-0, Santos built up a 4-1 aggregate lead by halftime of the second leg. Cerro Porteno tried to battle back, though, scoring two goals in the second half, including this absolute golazo from Argentine Jonathan Fabbro in the 81st minute.

Fabbro got past two defenders with some fancy dribbling and blasted a shot from distance that made it just under the crossbar for Cerro Porteno's third goal of the match. If you're going to get eliminated, that's the way to do it, I guess. But as great as that was, Cerro Porteno keeper Diego Barreto's own goal in the first half of the match was equally as bad...

Santos and Neymar's giant fauxhawk will now play the winner of Velez Sarsfield and Penarol in the final.
