translated from Spanish: UC fails to retrace and ended up falling to Curicó Unido in resumption

Universidad Católica closed on Wednesday the first wheel of the 2020 National Championship with a 3-2 defeat on his visit to Curicó Unido, in the continuation of the meeting suspended on October 15 for a power outage at La Granja Stadium.The meeting was suspended when a fault in the electric board of the La Granja Stadium generated a fire and a blackout. At the time of his arrest, the local painting beat Pablo Parra (27′) and Federico Castro (40′) 2-0. Before the resumption, the two teams gathered in the central circle to keep a minute’s silence over the passing of Carlos Campos, historical goalscorer of the University of Chile and former worldist with the ‘Roja’. The duel in the Maule Region resumed after 49 minutes with the criminal in favor of Universidad Católica, which managed to discount not without first some incidents. The Curican goalkeeper Fabián Cerda first covered Luciano Aued’s header from the 12 steps, but from the VAR they informed referee Nicolas Gamboa that the goal was advanced. Fernando Zampedri then stopped from the 12 steps and his finish to the center was blocked by Cerda. However, the goalkeeper was overtaken and the maximum penalty had to be repeated again. In the third attempt Zampedri sought the rematch, already at 55 minutes, and this time did not fail with a header up and crossed while the ‘1’ of the ‘torteros’ was thrown to the other side. With the run of minutes, UC never found the weapons to disturb the portico of the red-eyed box. Even the clearest chance was on without the place with a shot by Gabriel Harding who found the great reaction of Matías Dituro (65′). Finally, the squadron led by Nicolás Larcamón – now absent from coronavirus – sentenced his triumph to 90+1′ with another target from 11 meters. Facundo Castro executed powerful upstairs, a punchline in which nothing Matías Dituro could do.In the last sigh, at 90+5′, the cast that runs Ariel Holan got a new discount. Aued pivoted and Zampedri defined in the heart of the area with a crossed left-hander. After the last duel of the first wheel, UC remains at the top of the table with 39 points, advantaged by three over its closest pursuers (Unión La Calera and Unión Española), while Curicó Unido jumped from seventh to fifth place with 27 units and enters the standings to international tournaments. At the start of the second part of the tournament, the two-time national football champion will receive Cobreloa on Sunday, November 15, and the ‘torteros’ will visit Deportes Iquique.
