Gómez, Racing goalkeeper: "I told my teammates that we were going to go through penalties"

Gastón Gómez was one of the main responsible for Racing’s triumph against Boca in the semi-final of the Professional League Cup, where the Academy got a ticket to the final after the penalty shootout, after the boring 0-0 in regular time. The goalkeeper, who appeared as a starter in the absence of Gabriel Arias due to the call to the Chilean National Team, stopped one of the shots for the Pizzi party.

“I told my teammates during the week that we were going to go through penalties. I had all the faith in the world that we were going to go through and I had a feeling that it was going to be through penalties. It finally happened,” he revealed after the end of the game.

Regarding the process of the game, Chila Gómez acknowledged: “We knew it was going to be a close match and the truth is that the important thing is that we passed.” Meanwhile, regarding the definition of penalties, he admitted that he had seen some shots from Boca footballers, but that “what ended up weighing in was the intuition” that he had under the three sticks when responding to each penalty.

The Racing goalkeeper also dedicated the victory to Arias and Eugenio Mena, absent from the Qualifiers: “Personally, I work a lot during the week so that when this situation hits, be prepared and leave the club at the top, and give the thanks to Gaby for her message on the networks. Thank him and dedicate the triumph to him and Mena “.

Finally, he assured that this game will not change him: “I will always remain the same, a game will not change me at all. In sports we will see what happens, there are situations that come out of nowhere,” he closed.
