translated from Spanish: UC thrashed Melipilla 4-0 and continues to hunt for Colo Colo

Universidad Católica got this Wednesday a good victory of 4-0 at home against Deportes Melipilla, in a duel valid for the 23rd date of the National Championship.The pre-Andean team tried to take control of the actions from the start, but the visit was positioned well in its field and closed the spaces in defense. The “colts” appealed to the long ball looking for Gonzalo Sosa, or the counterpunuls through Cristian Zavala, but the local defense was attentive to neutralize them. Almost at the end of the first half, Felipe Gutiérrez (40′) took advantage of a lost ball in the visitor’s exit to make it 1-0 with a tight shot from outside the area. In the complement, the entry of Mathías Vidangossy gave more depth to the outsider, but the “UC” continued to generate danger, although it met the remarkable Nicolás Peranic.In the 67th minute Melipilla had the great opportunity to tie the score, but the goalkeeper Sebastián Pérez was very fast to avoid the goal of Vidangossy.Then, a long ball from the bottom found Sosa (69′) in the area, who took a powerful shot to the first stick that contained the goal Perez in two times. When the “colts” looked their best, diego Buonanotte invented an overlooked pass into the area that found the head of Fernando Zampedri (72′) for the 2-0.In the final minutes, Fabián Orellana made his debut with the “cross” shirt, entering for Marcelino Núñez. Shortly after, Diego Valencia (87′) established the 3-0, after VAR review. Already in the discounts, Buonanotte (90 + 7′) took another ball that the rival defense could not clear to shoot Peranic and establish the final 4-0. With this result, Universidad Católica reached 38 points and remains in third position in the table, 5 units behind the leader Colo Colo (43). For its part, Deportes Melipilla completed its seventh consecutive match without winning, and with 21 units remains in fifteenth place, so for now it would be playing the promotion.
