Santiago Silva penalty miss Peñarol Libertadores

On 2 June 2011 Vélez Sársfield hosted Peñarol in the semi-finals of the 2011 Copa Libertadores. The visitors were 1-0 up from the first leg and scored early in the game meaning that Vélez needed three goals to win the tie. Fernando Tobio and Santiago Silva scored a couple of goals to get them back into the game and in the 75th minute Silva had the opportunity to get the vital 3rd goal from the penalty spot but somehow managed to spoon in over the bar. Peñarol managed to survive the remainder of the match and went through to the final on the away goals rule.
