The rule has been in place for a long time, I doubt it will be changed in the future. The thinking behind the away goal rule is to encourage away teams to score. It would be too easy to put 9/10 men behind the ball and defend all game, killing the spectacle. Grabbing an away goal makes the home team more adventurous, ironically crerating more chances for the away team. There are some occasions, such as Chelsea v Barca, when the away team scores a very late goal and snatches the win but both teams know the rules at kick-off.

This is the goal you said
