Colo Colo left behind the celebrations for obtaining the Chile Cup and quickly became aware of his new goal: to win the National Championship. To start paving the way to the title, he will have to win this afternoon at O’Higgins de Rancagua and consolidate himself as the exclusive leader in the standings.
The Cacique adds 34 points and in case of victory he will take three lengths ahead of Audax Italiano, with whom he shares the lead. This while waiting for what Unión La Calera can do, which adds 32 units in the competition. The most considerable differences that it could reach would be against its classic rivals: five over Universidad Católica and 7 over Universidad de Chile.
The albos will jump to the field of play knowing the result of the match between La Calera and Santiago Wanderers that will be played at 3:30 p.m. at the Nicolás Chahuán stadium. Despite the fact that the cement producers are widely favorites, in the Buenos Aires cast they hope to end the bad streak and begin to score points that will allow them to remain in the first division.
To achieve victory against the Rancagüinos, Gustavo Quinteros, has prepared a team with the best names available to him, so he would jump onto the pitch with: Brayan Cortes in goal; Oscar Opazo; Maximiliano Falcón, Emiliano Amor and Gabriel Suazo in defence; Vicente Pizarro in containment work; Pablo Solari, Leonardo Gil and Joan Cruz in the steering wheel area; leaving on the offensive Marcos Bolados and Javier Parraguez.
The match between Colo Colo and O’Higgins de Rancagua is scheduled for this afternoon at 6:00 p.m. at the El Teniente stadium.
