U. of Chile gets tangled while Coquimbo Unidos, the UC and Colo Colo stalk

Universidad de Chile tied without goals this Sunday with Ñublense and with two points clung to the leadership of the Chilean League on the fourteenth and penultimate date, with 29 units.

The team led by Gustavo Álvarez reached the top on the seventh day and had remained undefeated for twelve games until the classic that they lost 1-2 against Universidad Católica. However, they have not been able to chain wins, which has put their permanence in first place in danger.

The first runner-up of the secular team with 27 points is Coquimbo Unidos and the one with the most options to displace it before the break arrives, since it has a pending match against Palestino.

The pirate team won 2-1 on Friday in their visit to the sixteenth place, Unión La Calera, which has had five wins and nine games without losing in the local championship.

With the same number of points is the third, Universidad Católica, which beat Cobreloa 4-1, the thirteenth.

Forward Fernando Zampedri is the top scorer with 9.

“I said it from day one: I knew there were conditions to fight for more. It was just a matter of fine adjustments, work and luck. The team has the potential to be better than it is. The tournament is just beginning,” said the Crusaders’ coach, Brazilian Tiago Nunes.

Colo Colo also confirmed its intentions to fight for the lead by climbing to fourth place on Saturday and adding 26 points with its 3-0 win over Deportes Iquique, which fell to fifth place.

With goals from Arturo Vidal, Marcos Bolados and Guillermo Paiva, the albos achieved their third consecutive victory.

The team led by Argentine Jorge Almirón produced 11 goals in May, but it has been difficult for them to transfer that production to the Copa Libertadores, where this Wednesday they play their last chance of qualifying for the round of 16 in the Cerro Porteño payments.

Unión Española is in seventh place after beating Palestino 1-0, sixth with the same 21 points, while Everton follows them in eighth place with the same units despite falling 1-0 against the champion Huachipato, who occupies eleventh place.


At the bottom of the standings there is also a fight to get out of the relegation zone. La Calera, bottom with 8 points, is losing. Copiapó is fifteenth after beating Audax Italiano 2-1, which is twelfth with 12, like Cobresal, fourteenth after drawing 2-2 with O’Higgins, tenth.
