Colo Colo showered the win against Huachipato and finished 2-2 during his visit to the CAP Stadium in Talcahuano, he continues far away at the bottom of the National Championship standings, three points from Deportes La Serena, his next rival.
The “albos” played much of the game with one another man for the deportation of Juan Sánchez Sotelo and unbeatable options were lost in the second half.
The cast “Albo” got the most out of this commitment, as he took the lead in the first minute through Leonardo Valencia, who scored after three months and added his sixth win in the tournament.
The “Cacique” was inspired Matías Fernández at the start, who took part in the most dangerous actions and showed marked improvement in physical appearance, a source of football generation.
Despite this, the “steels” did not shrink and managed to tie the game in 24 minutes, with a capture by Sánchez Sotelo, who took advantage of a floating ball in the “popular” area and scored.
Likewise Gustavo Quinteros’ team reacted quickly and moved forward again on the scoreboard, thanks to Maximiliano Falcón, who scored his first goal for the club with a header (28 ‘).
The expulsion of Sánchez Sotelo and the waste “albo”
In the 34 ‘came the incident that seemed to determine the stakes, because after a strong entry on Nicolás Blandi, Sánchez Sotelo saw red after a review in the VAR and left his team with 10, which lost 2-0.
Despite this situation, the “steelers” proposed a game on par, and good scoring opportunities were generated, warning that if Colo Colo didn’t close the game, he would suffer.
Quinteros arranged changes to the attack and included rookies Pablo Solari and Ignacio Jara, in addition to Javier Parraguez, who had a high chance of hand in hand condemning the story but ended up poorly defined and left the locals alive.
The “steel makers” accepted the gift and received it the final draw 2-2 with a header from Claudio Sepúlveda (70 ‘), have the chance to Joffré Escobar even to win it, but in the end get a very valuable point for the process of the match.
The next day, Colo Colo will host La Serena in an important game looking to reach them in the penultimate place, which is played Tuesday, while Huachipato will face O’Higgins in Rancagua.
