Tuesday’s day evolved bitterly for the Cacique’s fans, with a promising start thinking that only details separated Marcelo Moreno Martins from Colo Colo and with a sad end of fallen negotiations with Cruzeiro, accompanied by the definitive “no” from the Brazilian player and club.
But nevertheless, in the Cacique they must immediately turn the page to this coup in the pass market, since in sports is around the corner a very important that could say a lot in the fight for the title.
The albos will visit Unión Española at the Santa Laura Stadium this Saturday, August 14, starting at 4:30 p.m., in a duel valid for the date 16 of the 2021 National Championship.
The duel will have its historical ingredient, since it will be the first Chilean soccer match with fans in the stadium in the midst of this coronavirus pandemic, thus ending more than a year and a half with empty sports venues.
The Chief is obliged to staye with the victory not to get off the fight for the title. Those led by Gustavo Quinteros march seconds with 27 points, one unit below the leader Unión La Calera and two above from Universidad Católica and Universidad de Chile.
The Hispanics march in seventh place with 21 points and come to this duel after beating Ñublense 3-2 in local condition. However, before facing Cacique, they will face Huachipato on Wednesday in the Copa Chile quarterfinals to define who will face Colo Colo in the semifinals.
Gustavo Quinteros must define his eleventh in the following training sessions, where he already has a confirmed loss, since Matías Zaldivia suffered a tear against Curicó Unido last Sunday and was ruled out for the visit to Unión Española.
