Llaneros were leading 1-0 deep into injury time before the dramatic late twist.
Footage posted online of the winning goal from Jonathan Segura appears to show Llaneros defenders backing away and allowing the attacking team to score the crucial winning goal unimpeded, which came after their main promotion rivals Fortaleza lost 2-1 to Bogota on the same night.
