The game, from the start of the game, belonged to Tigre. It was difficult for Koln to stand on his feet, he was not aggressive in recovery and when he had, he abused Wanchopp Obilia with a long ball.
Diego Martínez’s team, on the other hand, found a good driver in Fascundo Collidio and made it very difficult every time he leaked the ball behind the Sabellara defence.
Of course, as is the case with them, Victoria’s men lack depth and the tournament’s top scorer, Matteo Retegui, is out in the cold. For that reason, Ignacio was good enough for Chicco with a few minor interventions so as not to do too much damage.
However, even though Cologne had more spectators than protagonists, Colombian Perlaza was the one who broke the monotony. With good effort when he had the ball at his feet and two interesting maneuvers in aerial play, that was enough to worry Manuel Rofo.
As the minutes passed, the visitor was punctured and, at the same time, Santa Fe began to discover how to cut their paths and find spaces, mainly with a pivot game by VanChop.
So it was that a ball landed at the feet of El Pulga, which reached inside the field and assisted Facundo Farias, who took a few weak shots but was destined for a goal. It didn’t materialize as Lucas Blondell, off the floor, managed to clear the line.
While people in the stadium began to get impatient, another straight ball came down that Billa went down, leaving Bernardi in hand with Rofo, who won the individual duel, but was unable to rebound with the eternal Pulga Rodriguez, who Did not hesitate and put 1-0.
At the start of the second half, Köln was somewhat better, as the first half was over. However, Collidio suddenly reappeared, entering the field from the left and after that good move, Equi Fernández took a powerful shot that was met with a great save by Chicco, who avoided the tie.
Marini’s team was better, they also extended the advantage through Obila, but VAR showed they were in an advanced position. But, when the end was near, Matteo Retegui took advantage of a poor start from the bottom, pressed, recovered and took a forceful left foot to score the tie.
It looked like it was justified, but Colon has a wild card… which one? El Pulga Rodriguez, the stenciled idol, gave Sabalero a much-needed victory in a painstaking way but with a great goal.
