With ten dates remaining for the end of this 2021 National Championship, it is already beginning to be glimpsed who will be the teams that will fight for the title here at the end of the competition, with Colo Colo, Universidad Católica, Audax Italiano and Unión La Calera as the main candidates.
Within that group, it is the Cacique who runs as the favorite, since he is the current leader, he is five points ahead of them and, except for the defeat against Ñublense, he has been quite solid in the last dates of the tournament.
This data gains more strength when compared to what was done by those led by Gustavos Quinteros at this same point in the tournament in the first round, where El Cacique entangled several points while still filming after maintaining the category months ago.
At the start of the season Colo Colo tied with Unión La Calera on the first date and then beat Cobresal. The first defeat was not long in coming, since they lost 2-1 to O’Higgins at the Monumental on matchday three. Then they came two victories with Everton and Universidad de Chile, while Everything was closed with two falls against Ñublense and Palestino.
In total the Cacique counted three victories, one draw and three defeats, which translates into 10 units and go well far in the table, just in ninth place.
The second round of the tournament found a much more established team that had just won the Copa Chile. Started drawing against La Calera and losing with Cobresal, but later O’Higgins, Everton and Universidad de Chile were defeated. The fall before Ñublense stopped this winning streak, but got back on track beating Palestino the next match.
In these duels the albos managed four wins, one draw and two falls, gaining 13 points this past, which has us up at the top and with the first option to win.
Numbers that are exciting in this final stretch of the tournament, where The Chieftain still has to face the Universidad Católica in the classic at the Monumental Stadium and visit Audax Italiano, two of his closest pursuers in the upper part. Key duels are coming for Gustavo Quinteros.
