Colo Colo will face Unión Española this afternoon with the aim of qualifying for the final of the Chile Cup. The popular cast arrives as favorites after winning 4-0 in the first leg where they showed one of the best performances of the season.
The duel for the traditional cup has not been the only confrontation against the Hispanics, a few weeks ago they faced each other for the National Championship where the Cacique also imposed his terms and was left with a 1-0 victory with a score by Maximiliano Falcón in the stadium Santa Laura.
Today’s will be the third meeting in less than a month, so both coaches fine-tune their strategies to surprise the rival. Gustavo Quinteros will not be able to count on Iván Morales and Gabriel Costa who will be the protagonists of the South American Qualifiers heading to Qatar 2022. For their part, Cesar Bravo prepares modifications in the goal where Miguel Pinto will take the place of Diego Sánchez.
Beyond the names, the most significant modification will have to do with clothing. This is due to the fact that the Cacique will once again use the commemorative shirt, in gray, which was designed to commemorate the 30 years of obtaining the Copa Libertadores de América. Clothing that has already been used in the tournament and the cup.
The match between Colo Colo and Unión Española is scheduled for this afternoon at 7:00 p.m. at the Santa Laura stadium.
