Colo Colo continues its winning streak after beating Unión Española 1-0 on its visit to the Santa Laura Stadium, in a match where it dominated from start to finish with the main goal actions, but failing too much in the aim facing the goal defended by Diego Sánchez.
The Cacique was barely able to unbalance the scoreboard thanks to an accurate header by Maximiliano Falcón in the small area after a precise corner kick served by Gabriel Costa, this after a first half where at least he should have gone into halftime with a couple of goals in his favor.
The data is devastating in this regard, since Colo Colo had 14 chances to score, being just seven of these shots in the direction of the goal defended by Diego Sánchez. Of these 14 shots, only one was outside the area.
These 14 occasions are divided in four for Marcos Bolados, three for Gabriel Costa, three for Iván Morales, two for Maximiliano Falcón, one for César Fuentes and one for Emiliano Amor, being only the Peluca the one that managed to transform his opportunity into a goal.
Gustavo Quinteros was clear on this matter, stating after the game in conversation with TNT Sports that “This reaffirms that we have to go for a 9, we miss two from Bolados, two from Morales, one from Amor. We need a center-forward with area characteristics, we have those who make the diagonals, but we need the one to finish the play, that the accompany ”.
The Cacique’s next challenge will be this Wednesday, August 18, in the first leg of the semifinals of the Chile Cup, precisely against the same Spanish Union, in what will be the first game with the public at the Monumental Stadium after more than a year.
