Santos surprises in practice and could be cited against Palestinian

Colo Colo had a game to forget against Ñublense and lost 1-0 at the Monumental Stadium on the 23rd date of the National Championship, in a result that leaves us closer to our guards for the other results on the day.

A point that undoubtedly concerned the colocolina fanatic in the fall with the chillanejos was the serious lack of settlement, since options were generated to at least tie the game, but in the final stitch it was pitifully failed.

Gustavo Quinteros himself referred to this point, stating in the post-match press conference that “It cost us, contrary to the previous game, where we scored two goals in the first two arrivals. We were not precise and there was the difference. I’m calm with what the team did, they kicked 20 times at goal. We have to continue like this and try to be more precise to be able to win the games ”.

Fortunately, it seems there is a good opportunity to solve this failure in the Cacique, since the Venezuelan Christian Santos, last reinforcement alboHe has looked pretty good in training with the first team since his arrival last Friday.




The attacker has stood out for his good aerial game and, above all, his scoring nose and definition within the area. It might sound rushed but in the white coaching staff they are already evaluating taking him to the bench at least against Palestino this Sunday.

“When you have these situations that take you out of line, you think that maybe we should risk the player (Christian Santos) a little more so that he can be a little earlier, but we will continue working. We hope that on Sunday we can make the goals that we did not do today ”Quinteros said about this after yesterday’s meeting.

Christian Santos just completed a week of training at the Monumental Stadium and He has not played an official match since May 23, 2021, the day he started the 90 minutes in the defeat of his team, Osnabrück, 2-1 against FC Erzgebirge Aue by date 34 of the second division of Germany.

Nevertheless, the lack of settlement would “rush” his definitive incorporation to the professional squad for the duel this Sunday. If it is not given to the Arabs, it is more than certain that their first summons will be the next duel, with Huachipato next Saturday, October 9 at the Monumental.

The Cacique will play as a visitor in his next match, facing Palestino this Sunday, October 3 from 3:30 p.m. in La Cisterna, in a duel valid for the 24th date of the tournament.
