The Colo Colo starred in one of the best performances of the season this Wednesday for beat O’Higgins at home by 2-3 and to be the only leader of the Chilean soccer championship when twenty days have already passed. The Albo team began losing to an incisive and leathery rival, who opened the scoring almost at the edge of the break with a goal of Matías Sepúlveda, but shortly after the restart Pablo Solari put the equalizer. It was the Cacique’s moment in the game and only four minutes later Javier Parraguez He put him ahead with a header. O’Higgins did not give up and managed to equalize the contest thanks to a goal from Pedro Pablo Hernandez. However, a free throw from Leonardo Gil to 10 minutes after the conclusion of the clash gave the chief victory.
With this result, the Colo Colo added 37 points and leads by three to its most immediate pursuer, the Audax Italiano, that last Tuesday lost against Catholic University 3-1. The crusaders are the third in contention with 32 points in the fight for the championship, now without Gustavo Poyet on the bench but without lowering his arms to qualify for what would be his fourth consecutive league title.
In fourth position and also with 32 points is La Calera, which this Wednesday suffered a surprise 1-0 loss to bottom bottom Santiago Wanderers, who until this day did not know what it was to win a match in this edition of the tournament.
