Result that is of little use given the relegation

Unión Magdalena and Once Caldas scored in the game at the Sierra Nevada Stadium, valid for Matchday 12 of the Colombian League. It is a draw that does little good to both teams, who are still stuck in the relegation zone, but the Samaria team is much more committed and has lost the category so far.

The home team was the one who dictated the conditions and dominated the ball from start to finish, which on a statistical level resulted in a pretty big difference in terms of possession. In the first half they tried mid-range shots, but the approaches weren’t clear enough.

The first scoring excitement of the afternoon had to wait until the 72nd minute, when Ricardo Márquez received a ball in a dubious position in the left zone, entered the penalty area and then fired it to Alexander Mejía, which he later did for Roberto Hinojosa, who entered from behind and done; The ball deflected and upset goalkeeper Éder Chaux. The action was reviewed in VAR due to the horse’s location at the time of receipt.

But the Manizales team’s reaction was immediate and the rush to score the equalizer was palpable, but the reward was to come in the 85th minute. Sherman Cárdenas took a corner from the left, the rebound landed on the edge of the penalty area and Álvaro Montaño returned the ball. On the 16th and 50th goal, goalkeeper Carlos Bejarano missed again and Jaider Riquett headed it, and then Johar Mejía, driven, shot to equalize to achieve balance.

The Samarium team wanted to return to the penalty area and aim for the win, and the Whites tried to react, but the tackle could no longer be moved and both teams sealed the equalizer.

However, it is a draw that does little good for both teams in their bid to get out of the relegation zone, but does more for the Banana team, who remain in last place in this table. In the overall standings, Once Caldas remains at 15 points, almost eight, while Unión Magdalena has the same number but has conceded 4 fewer goals.
