Another day of First B, another day of excitement. On this occasion, Deportes Antofagasta faced the University of Concepción, with sights set on the Chilean promotion tournament, after the golden opportunity what does this mean? Saturday tie between Deportes Iquique and Deportes Temuco.
The game, played by Calvo and Bascuñán, was favorable from the beginning for the Pumas, who, unlike other teams with similar opportunities, did not miss the chance to escape alone on top.
The scoring opened at 2′ with a header from Brian Hurtado, after Guerra’s cross. And although Campanil had a chance to equalize immediately, thanks to a deflected shot at 3′ from Gallegos, the bright team continued to expand their numbers, thanks to Hurtado’s personal double (15′).
When the game was about to take a break, Salvador Cordero scored another one for the locals, with a flawless left-footed shot (45+2′).
Such a wide difference does not mean resigning the visit. Felipe Orellana got the discount in 57′, but the push of U. de Conce only served to make the score equal to the one at the Centenario Stadium in the first round of the Qualifiers.
With this 3-1 win, Deportes Antofagasta has taken the absolute lead in Primera B, with 45 points and two more than its closest pursuers, Iquique and Temuco.
For its part, the University of Concepción will not be able to distance itself from the last places, however, due to its play, it should not continue to risk.
