Colo Colo took the task forward and beat Everton 2-0 at the Monumental Stadium on the 21st date of the tournament, a result that helped the Cacique stretch the lead to five points at the top of the standings.
The party left several things to clean up, like Leonardo Gil’s goal to seal the victory, Maximiliano Falcón’s goal or the applause that Julio Barroso received when he set foot on the Monumental field for the first time since his departure for the Viñamarino box.
However, there was another fact that is well worth highlighting in this past: the ovation he received Gustavo Quinteros near the end of the game, when the victory and the three points for the albos were already assured.
The fans who said they were present at the Monumental sang out loud “Quinteros, Quinteros”, a moment that was rescued by The Other Chamber of TNT Sports, where the face was full of emotion in the Santa Fe, who responded to the affection with applause to the fanatical dawn.
The moment was magical, especially considering that It has been many years that the Monumental has not given an ovation to the coach on duty. Perhaps Héctor Tapia in the 30’s campaign was the last to achieve that connection with the fans, something that neither José Luis Sierra nor Pablo Guede, also champions, could do.
Now the Superclásico is coming against the University of Chile after September 18, in a key duel not only for history, but also to “lower” a team that has been trying to get into the title discussion for a long time.
