And even if he tries to move away from the slogan that says “everything suffers in Medellin”, for now it will remain so. Dim died and was revived during the game with Deportivo Pasto. A last-minute penalty, which he has happily swung at several times, completely revived his chances of qualifying I-2023 for league home runs. Edwin Setre gave him a 1–0 win and left him in seventh place with 26 points.
For the Volcanoes, who haven’t beaten DiM as a visitor for 21 years and were left with the same score as their opponent, Now it is up to them to play the final against Envigado to stay in the eight.
Powerful start and Martinez figures
More advanced play in the Botero era has allowed Andres Ricorte to finish more on goal, and this was seen once in the match with Caldas and in the fight with Pastusos. At 2′ and 18′, the powerful captain already had two clear goal-scoring options on his record, which didn’t end up in the back of the net due to goalkeeper Diego Martínez’s interference.
In that spirited outburst, buoyed by the slips of Santa Fe and Junior, who restored their hopes after a last-minute draw with the white team, tired of adding powerful chances that didn’t materialize to raise concerns because of the urgency To stay close to the classification wins. Víctor Moreno and Luciano Ponce were some of those who failed to finish in the most aggressive moment of the venue.
That band game did a good job of getting into the zone, especially with Andrés Iberguen and Yulán Gómez, but there it was unclear to draw conclusions against an opponent who was cautious at first and after half an hour the weather warmed up. Showed part of his performance. Yours in Medellin.
Edward López came into play more and Adrian Astacio became very dangerous when he found space to find Joffrey Escobar, that at the age of 34 he had the first clear position for the visitor, to which Luis Ernie Vásquez responded by winning a one-on-one with the attacker.
Sebastián Botero headed in with a header from Ponce and a shot from Daniel Londoña responded to those, which Martínez processed into another good intervention, as did his colleague at the end of the first half, before a powerful shot from Astacio Vasquez was About 30 meters.
Pasta stands up and drama dominates Attanasio
The interim coaching staff didn’t hesitate and the complement started it off with Emerson Batala coming in for Daniel Torres To make conditions even more difficult going into the game on an afternoon with temperatures in the 30’s. Ponce was the first to appear among DIM’s inaccuracies, but he lacked precision.
Escobar, for his part, had nothing to resolve when the opponent was a sea of suspicion as Torres’ departure did not sit well with him and a furore caused Ricorte to leave the field. Flabio Torres’ men could not finish, but they worked for more. Astacio was the one who hit the hardest with his shots.
With pride, the mighty forward and Londoño narrowly gave him the win, but once again Martínez spoke against Pasto before the controversial moment for the goal, which saw Jhon Palacios disallowed in the 68′ for an alleged foul. Gave. And to complete the misfortune of the money squad, in celebration of the score that was not scored, the defender was injured and Andres Cadavid had to be replaced.
VAR takes and gives and Cetré is a hero
To make the situation more difficult, Ponce wasted again after a Batalha cross and referee Eder Vergara was once again the hero for a tackle on David Loaiza, which Medellin claimed as a penalty, but he called it out. Not reviewed. Despite the frustration, they didn’t stop attacking and continued to create chances in the last 10 minutes. Ibarguen was activated, Batala was insistent and Diber Cambindo appeared in front of a Martinez who did not disappoint.
Although Red didn’t stop pushing, Pasto’s team became dangerous with the spaces and the adjustments made by his assistant. He scoured the options and put his opponent to the limit, returning his spirit to his body when the referee cleared 97′. When time ran out and VAR warned, goalkeeper Martínez awarded a penalty to Ibargüen. Cetré took charge, which left Medellin out of eight and with all chances to qualify against Union Magdalena on the last date. While Pasto still has a chance and will fight against Envigado, but without his DT, Atanasio kicks in.
