After the great victory of Colo Colo against Cobresal, those led by Gustavo Quinteros arrived in Santiago and took a few days off. The mini vacations end this Monday and on Tuesday the 20th they have to be back at the Monumental Stadium to resume work for the final stretch of the National Championship.

The next challenge is against Universidad Católica. The Albos will receive the Crusaders with the mission of seeking the three points and, in the event of some results, consecrating themselves as champions and lower the long-awaited star 33 that has been elusive for almost five years.

The Cacique and those from the foothills will face each other on Sunday, October 2 at 3:00 p.m. at the Monumental Stadium, where a full house is expected. Both teams will arrive with totally different realities, not only in the standings, but also in the rhythm of the competition.

This, because Colo Colo will not see action until that day. After the elimination of Copa Chile, Popular only has the local tournament left, so they will not play another championship on the way. Contrary to that of UC, which has to face the Clásico Universitario against Universidad de Chile and will have many minutes of football in the body.

Yes indeed, The Eternal Champion will arrive quite rested to play the transcendental commitment against the cast of La Franja. In fact, he will do it with 18 days without official matches. For their part, those led by Ariel Holan have the two duels for Copa Chile on September 25 and 28, so the bustle can be felt.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is expected that, while unofficial, Gustavo Quinteros have some friendly training matches, as has been the trend throughout the year and that has brought very good returns to a team that is a cannon shot away from lifting the trophy.
