Meanwhile, the ‘Pumas’ added their third straight duel without falling, with two draws and a win, and kept fourth place in the standings with 40 points, five from the Copa Libertadores area.When Union played best, the outsider opened the account in the capital in the 34th minute. After a long exit from goalkeeper Ignacio González and some inconveniences in the local lag, Jason Flores received a precise attendance and defined before the departure of Diego Sánchez.In a second lapse without major emotions and with few ideas from mid-court forward, Carlos Palacios broke the lethargy with a goal. The young striker made a double wall in the center, first with Ronald González and then with Mauro Caballero, and ended up defining with quality before the chico of the ‘Nacho’ González.For the 27th day of the domestic tournament, the squad led by Ronald Fuentes will visit Audax Italiano on Monday, January 4, while the Northtinos will receive colista Colo Colo on Sunday 3.
