The attitude of the Pibe before the hostility of El Teniente

One of the figures that Colo Colo had in the victory against O’Higgins was Pablo Solari, who was in charge of start the path of triumph by scoring the transitional 1-1, connected headlong before an untimely departure from Nelson Espinoza and carrying a sweetie along the way.

El Pibe showed an important maturity and personality in a hostile land with the Cacique. The celestial fan base in the rancag├╝ino enclosure was of 2247 spectators, who before the absence of white fans were noticed with several shouts, insults and blunders against Colo Colo players.

Solari saved each of those attacks and brought them out at the best moment. After recovering from the blow suffered by Espinoza, he stood up and without any fear he put his left hand to his ear and looked directly at the north gallery, challenging a sector of the stadium that fell silent after 1-1 on the scoreboard.

The answers and insults were immediate, but the Kid did not care. The goal was already validated and there was still a lot of game left to play, with a Cacique who took out his courage and attitude to end up winning 3-2 and taking Santiago three gold points in their fight for the title.




Solari was finally replaced at 64 ‘by Bryan Soto, at a time when Quinteros sought to strengthen the midfield and maintain the transitory 2-1. A shout fell again against the 19-year-old forward. El Pibe did not take them into account and went silently to the bank. He had already spoken on the court.

Pablo Solari has established himself as one of the most important forwards in the Quinteros team, being the third player who has contributed the most to the Cacique’s goals in this 2021 season with six scores and four assists.
