Alejandro Gomez put Arsenal ahead in the 37th minute enough to give the Argentine club a 4-3 aggregate victory.

Opening the match with the advantage from last week's 3-2 victory in Brazil, Arsenal controlled the ball early.

In the second half, Goias were denied go-ahead goal when Leandro's header was batted away by Arsenal keeper Mario Cuenca.

Arsenal had a chance at some insurance in the 74th minute off a corner kick by Pablo Garnier that Goias keeper Harlei managed to block.

Diego Villar of Arsenal tried to convert the rebound bur Harlei denied the Argentines again.
