In 1994, the Crusaders lost their championship after the Universidad de Chile, when they had led the whole year.
To date, 28, the scenario was similar. The Catholic University has remained a strong candidate and has opposed the continuous siege of the University of Concepc, which was loosened in the last part. Chilen University was, in spite of the bad season, in the last place in the second place, even by dropping UdeC, who closed the first half as a leader.
That was how the ghost began to appear again. Néstor Raul Gorosito, one of the banners of this bitter memory, regretted in La Tercera's interview: "I hope we will not repeat the scandal and shame on 94," he admitted.
But the fear took only a couple of days. When the championship is determined at the end of the week, at 29 – who ended a heart attack with three simultaneous matches – the options for repeating this story were removed.
The Universidad Católica was one point away from the fierce champion Chile football after being hit by O & Higgins 1-0. The Universidad de Chile, meanwhile, signed the goatless wager with Deportes Iquique and got up for the title, making the second choice for the Concepc University, which won San Luis de Quillo at Ester Roa in Rebolledo.
UC caresses the title
The goal came from José Pedro Fuenzalida's hand at the end of the first half, and he surely came to three more points than the Universidad de Concepción last day.
"We will think about winning, we are one step, but the last attraction to achieve the desired" and crown the year's work, said the Argentine striker Diego Buonanotte, the team's reference at the end of the game.
The crossed fans celebrating victory with euphoria and assured that the Olympic victory will arrive to the last day. They have to face Deportes Temuco to go, but even a draw allows them to raise the title.
Although the scenario is favorable, winning the UC was not easy. The visitor group, led by Marco Antonio Figuero, gave a tough fight, especially during the first 45 minutes. However, it almost always failed with the last pass. On the other hand, Miguel Pinto's play was disheartening.
With this victory, Beñat San José's lead was 58 points. The only team that can stifle the cross is the Universidad de Concepción, which scored 55 by winning San Luis. Though the next day in Campanile theory – it is difficult to visit: Colo Colo.
In turn, O 'Higgins reached 38 points and remained ninth, and the illusion cast the seventh place in the Spanish League, which is currently the last in Copa Sudamerica.
UdeC is preparing to hit
They fight the title until the last day. Also local, UdeC did his job to the bottom. According to the goals of Walter Ponce and Francisco Portillo, Southerners won San Luis and sentenced him to play next season in the second division.
The students of Francisco Bozán opened their account in the first minute, when the Quillotana area was centered on the ground.
The competitor fired early in the goal but the goalie Ignacio González was deported after 20 minutes when his hands had been cut in advance by Campanile. He was replaced by Nelson Espinoza from the University of Chile.
With ten players, the game was uphill for visitors who also saw Francisco Portillo as the first split-off to make a 2-0 goal with an accurate header.
As a result, the Universidad de Concepción reached 55 points and is the only one who has the opportunity to challenge the title UC (58 points) on the last day.
On the other hand, San Luis stayed with 23 units from the bottom of the table and became the first to fall into the first B 2019.
In the U.-Chile battle
When he had to make the last step, he did not fulfill the task. The Universidad de Chile was a bad game and almost unequal to the penalty IQique Sports, which took the opportunity to shoot the national championship at UC at the last minute.
Before the national stadium of 45,000 spectators, Frank Kudelka's team showed shortcomings that had managed to hide in the past few days and seemed impotent against a competitor who officially signed his first division. Zafó, who has already signed San Luis and who is also spilling on another device: Everton, Palestino or Deportes Temuco.
Deportes Iquique's team-mates leveled the match at a certain time on a very low level. The approaches of Rolón and Pernía made some excitement to the regions even though they were not real risks to De Paul.
During the second half, Kudelka chose early in David Pizarro, trying to offer more play in the blue midfield. It was an idea that could not be realized because dragons could control without any problems the attacks on the premises that were part of the Vaz patriada – a few university charters – or try to cross the Rodriguez and Beausejour pages. Little to the team who wanted to go to the title.
Meanwhile, on Saturday Colo Colo defeated Huachipato 2-1. Gabriel Torres opened his account in 36 minutes, but the popular gave it back to Oskar Opazo (60) and Iván Morales (77) and despite a weak campaign, he secured a place next year for Copa Sudamerica.
But even though the two were outside the equation, the definition was red: Crusaders' victory and victory UdeC would equalize the points in both teams and force the final match.
