The eighth month of the year began and Colo Colo is still at the top of the standings. In addition, he is still in the fight to achieve the three-time Copa Chile championship. For the same reason, August is a key month in Albas’ aspirations.
Colo Colo lives a splendid moment. After beating Universidad de Chile, the Cacique added his fourth victory in a row and, in addition, took advantage of the fall of his escorts to escape to the top of the standings.
And it is that, despite not playing a great game, the cast of Gustavo Quinteros was able to become strong and defeat the classic rival with a great football rebound in the second half, having great figures such as Juan Martín Lucero, Leonardo Gil or Vicente Pizarro.
But it is not time to loosen up. Inside the dressing room they know that what happened in Talca is one more step towards achieving the final goal, which is to lower star number 33. For this reason, they are aware that they have to continue working in the best way to achieve such long-awaited title.
But it is not the only thing that Colo Colo fights for. The Chile Cup is in its round of 16 and Popular is looking for the three-time tournament championship. Thus, Ñublense appears as the rival on duty for this instance, in a duel that will be played in round-trip matches.
Thus, the month of August becomes key to the aspirations of the Eternal Champion. Starting next Sunday, August 7 with Deportes Antofagasta, for the date 21 of the National Championship, this month will also have said duel for the Chile Cup, where those led by Quinteros will seek to continue stretching the positive streak.
