The defeat in the first leg of the Pereira BetPlay Cup final against Nacional, showed the impotence of a team that was overcome throughout the semester. The Risaralda team got up, knowing that the objective is the League and to have a great campaign. Win 0-2 against Huila in Neiva, sealing the classification at the end of December.
The team from matecaña endured Huila’s clean and jerk in the first minutes. However, Brayan Castrillón, at minute 16, shook that and scored the first for the visit, making an entire region dream, in great definition, at the exit of Banguera.
From then on, Huila tried and hit the Pereira area, but they found Harlem Castillo, back to the goal, saving the options generated by the locals in the Plazas Alcid. The attempts of Márquez’s men would continue, despite not having much possession of the ball.
Brayan Castrillón would repeat at minute 75, with a great shot from outside the area. Ball at the angle, just to leave Banguera alone for the photo, as the ball went to the angle. The victory ratified the great moment of Pereira, who reached 33 units, occupying the third box and dreaming of being seeded in the home runs.
