Porto Alegre side, Grêmio, blew an early chance of getting back into the Libertadores when they were turfed out of the Copa do Brasil by minnows Atlético Clube Goianiense.

 

Celso Roth’s team had lost the first leg 2×1 but were firm favourites to dispose of the third division outfit.

 

But the game finished 2×1 in the estádio Olímpico and Atlético went through 4×3 on penalties.

 

See the action here.

 

Atlético’s reward is a meeting with Série B club, São Caetano in the last 16.
