As happened in the previous duel against Pereira – which they also lost -, the sugar players did badly against the Veneto de Bogota; In football they did not have to aspire to equality at least, permeable in defense, without ideas in the middle, and too light in attack.
With yesterday’s setback, the team is dangerously prostrated in the standings, in position 17, and is causing alarm, because it has shown that it has turned away from the road at the beginning of the tournament.
The first part of the half is very bad for Deportivo Cali, from the fact that they were afraid from the start of the millennium full substitutes, using the strategy of three central defenders, plus two backs and two marked midfielders.
Thus, with all these precautions, he came very easily into the city. Pinto went on to make amends, taking out the central defender and bringing in the striker when the game was already 2-0.
After 5 minutes it was 1-0: a mistake at the start from the bottom, Germán Mera gave the ball, it fell on Juan Carlos Pereira, who first beat Jáder Valencia with his left foot, from outside the area to Kevin Dawson.
At 29, it was 2-0: a penalty kick was taken by Juan Carlos Pereira, after José Caldera had crushed Jáder in the Valencia area.
With a noose around his neck, coach Pinto sent Adrián Parra on the field for the young Jefferson Díaz. But the change worked in those final minutes because Millonarios was closer to the third – when Yúber Mosquera shot – than Cali, from the discount.
In the middle, it was more of the same, and although coach Pinto entered John Vásquez, Juan José Mina and Fabry Castro, there was no reaction.
Millionaires managed the game for the referee, generated other options and exposed the lack of defense of Cali who does not know how to defend himself.
The only clear options for the growth of sugar arose from the two capitals of Germán Mera, which Alvaro Montero managed to control.
Otherwise, Cali would not have been able to organize part of the defense of the premises, because the game was lacking.
The score remained 2-0 until the end, leaving the green and white teams very worried, because it is clear that the team has notoriously deviated from the career it had in the league, and because it gives too much ground in relation to the teams. who are at the top of the league table.
