Alianza Petrolera took a golden point from Atanasio Girardot and remained in the lead of Group A. It proved to be a great game beyond interruption due to weather conditions and the difficulties of the pitch. Luis Miguel Angulo put Oriñegro ahead and Jarlán Barrera replied for Purslane.
The score went down and they eventually signed off at 1-1, which had a lot to do with goalkeeper Kevin Mair and Jose Luis Chunga, who were great heroes. With this result, the Barrancabermeja team reached 4 points (they had defeated Águilas Doradas) and remained in front of their home run, leaving Nacional in second place with 2 points.
Alianza Petrolera came out to defend his lead in the group and Atanasio Girardot didn’t come out to save anything. Hubert Boudart’s men controlled from the first minute and quickly celebrated their goal. After 5 minutes, Edwin Torres made a cross for Luis Miguel Angulo, which slipped between the centre-backs and was deflected in before goalkeeper Kevin Mair headed home. Great play and great definition.
Around 7 minutes in, Cristian Zapata saved Nacional from getting the second; Torres shot that looked like a goal and was deflected into the centre-back corner. Purslane’s response went up to 18, following a rejection that stalled at the edge of the field due to a puddle. Dorlan Pabon appeared with a cross which Brazil’s Francisco da Costa tried to clear with a half volley.
Weather conditions and field conditions at Atanasio Girardot forced play to be halted after about 20 minutes and for just over an hour. Referee Carlos Ortega twice inspected the field and allowed play to continue when the rain subsided and the ball rolled.
Barely 6 minutes have passed since the game restarted and Jarlan Barrera scored 1-1. A throw-in by Danovic Banguero which Pedro Franco tried to deflect with his head and set up Jarlan after a rebound from Luciano Ospina. The ’10’, very alert, hunted the ball down in the area and beat José Luis Chunga with the right hand.
Purslane celebrated the tie in suspense as the VAR, led by Nicolás Gallo, warned Ortega for a possible foul by Jarlan on Franco. The judge saw nothing and confirmed Jarlan’s goal. With equality they went to rest.
The second half was back and forth. On 57′, Pabon attempted a free kick with a shot that went too close to the crossbar. Alianza responded and two minutes later put Meier in trouble, one on one that he beat Angulo. Autori’s men began in full force in the attack against the Alianza betting on a counterattack. Great matches wherever he appeared.
Mier started off Angulo with two saves in less than five minutes, signing him up as a figure of the match. Alianza stopped giving shelter and became happy. However, National’s response did not wait. Nelson Deosa, who entered the fray, tested Chunga’s reflexes with a mid-distance kick.
The goalkeeper duel was to rent the ball. Both Nacional and Alianza showed their arguments for taking the points.
Around 79′, Chunga drowned out Jefferson Duke’s goal cry. A sung action that ended with the goalkeeper making a spectacular save when he already looked defeated. He extended his right glove to win the duel. Barranquillo’s interference was worth a point. Great result for the trip.
