translated from Spanish: Colo Colo beat O’Higgins and is more leader than ever

Colo Colo got this Wednesday a vibrant victory of 3-2 as a visit against O’Higgins for the 20th date, with which he was placed as the exclusive leader of the National Championship.The “celestial” box came out very determined to press the rival exit and complicate the action of the visit, which had a bad time with some lost balls at the start. Gustavo Quinteros’ team tried to react with quick attacks from the shores, where Óscar Opazo and Pablo Solari were very sharp on the right. However, the local generated the best option to open the account after a ball lost by Leonardo Gil, but the final shot gave the crossbar, when Brayan Cortés was beaten. After this the “cacique” returned to the charge and little by little began to tilt the court in his favor, where Marcos Bolados wasted a clear option to score and then claimed a possible penalty against him. In spite of everything, when the first half ended, Matías Sepúlveda (45 + 3′) put Rancagua in the lead with a perfect free kick to the angle that left Cortés without options.As soon as the complement started, the “albos” would quickly find the empatye, after a bad clearance from Felipe Seymour that Solari (50′) headed to the bottom of the goal. After this, a corner kick served by Gil generated a series of rejections that Javier Parraguez (54′) with a header transformed into the 2-1 for the outsider. When Quinteros’ men looked their best, Pedro Pablo Hernández (72′) took advantage of a series of rebounds after a corner kick and made it 2-2 for his team. The match again took a rhythm of back and forth, until Gil (78′) took advantage of a free kick to nail it to the angle and give the advantage to the outsider again. The “celestes” did not stop trying, and in a ball lost by Maximiliano Falcón they were close to equalizing in the 90′, but Cortés avoided it with a great bilge. Great victory of Colo Colo, who reaches 37 points in the table and became the only leader of the tournament, surpassing the line of Audax Italiano (34). For its part, O’Higgins remains with 22 units in the 12th position, just three points from the relegation zone to Primera B.
