Colo Colo he kept the trophy of Chile Cup against Everton de Viña del Mar. A commitment by which the Albos won by two to zero with goals from Pablo Solari and Joan Cruz, where both lived a totally historical day and left their name engraved in the Alba institution.
Is that yesterday’s day was exceptional in all areas, despite the fact that during the first half there was a hurried Colo Colo on the field and losing many balls in the middle of the field, managed to reverse that situation thanks to the changes he made Gustavo Quinteros placeholder image.
The historic coach managed to leave his name in the history of the club, not only because of what he did seven months ago, but also because of what was demonstrated in the new title that the Cacique obtained under his technical command.
Quinteros became, together with Colo Colo, the third best Chilean Cup champion. A record, which, according to statisticians, obtained a 91% approval during the matches they played (a total of 7). The white box is only surpassed by the Palestino squad in 1977 (it obtained 94%) and that of Deportes La Serena in 1960 (with 100%).
A path that was not easy for the Cacique. Colo Colo entered the Chile Cup in the round of 16, as the current champion of the contest. On that occasion, he was measured against Deportes La Serena, managing to win 1-3 in the first leg and demonstrate all its might in the return with a resounding 4-0.
The passage to the quarterfinals was perhaps one of the most complex, where the white box faced Palestino. The result of the first leg was quite tight until the last minutes of the match where the Cacique won by 2-3 in La Cisterna and took out an equality somewhat in the Monumental.
The semifinals were played against the Spanish Union and again Colo Colo would achieve a good advantage on the scoreboard. The albos beat the Hispanics 4-0 at the Monumental, a commitment that was with the long-awaited return of the fans to the stadium. While in the return he won by three to two.
And, as we all know, the Cacique beat Everton from Viña del Mar in the final of the Chile Cup, which was played in a single game and on a neutral field. The result was two to zero in favor of Colo Colo, thus achieving his thirteenth trophy in this Chilean soccer contest.
