Cosas locas: Gastón Sessa vs Rodrigo Palacio.

2 May 2007: Vélez Sársfield were 1-0 down against Boca Juniors in a Copa Libertadores tie when their goalkeeper got himself sent off for kicking Rodrigo Palacio in the face. After the red card was shown Sessa seemed to be trying to defend himself by making a kicking gesture but nobody else was watching by then, they were too busy having a scuffle with the referee.

Martín Palermo did a familiar job with the penalty, but Boca went on to win the game 3-0 despite the miss and the tie 4-3 on aggregate, they progressed to the final where they beat Brazilian side Grêmio 5-0 on aggregate to win their 6th Copa Libertadores.
