Pedro's goal made him the first player to score in six different competitions in the same saeson. The 22-year-old striker had already netted in the Spanish Primera Division, the Champions League, the Copa del Rey and the Spanish and European Supercups.

Atlante will now face Pohang Steelers of South Korea in the match for third place, also on Saturday. Estudiantes defeated Pohang Steelers 2-1 on Tuesday.
