U. Catolica vs Palestino by Eric1x2
Catolica finished like 2nd at the apertura behind Colo Colo who finished 1st with just point more then catolica.They could easely be first but the lost that last match against Audax Italiano and finished 2nd even and draw would be enough for them to be champions but they lost.Many questions was setted after that match some even said that it was fixed because and Audax fighted for play off spot but anyone who watched that match know that Audax just had luck.They scored a goal at 4th minute and then they whole time Catolica was "murdiring" them with chanses they even miss a penalty but they didnt have enough luck.Enough for that match.For the same begging Universitad Catolica was the best team for me.They have great squad with great individuals and they proof that.At the semi finals they lost first match from Audax with 2:1 but then here won with 2:0 and they qualify for the finals.On the other hand Palestino is here thanks to that 2 lucky won at the regular part against Colo Colo and San Marcos (they were completely over played at both matches but luck was at their side).To be honest im really surprised seem them here at the final but they played great at last 5 matches and won against Concepcion 2 times 2:1 and 1:0.
About the first match between this two teams.Catolica as expected opened the score when Sierralta scored great goal at the 13th minute but then after 30th minute it was visible that they fall at their performances.They just stop doing chanses and after palestino equalised somehow i think that they were goin for a draw (this is fact from their performance) but Zacaria then shocked them with his score just 10 minutes before the end.
All in all.Hosts are way much more quality and have more expirience at the squad that is a fact.Plus they are between the best home teams at Chile.Interesting this is that last 5 matches between this two team , hosts always won the game.
18.12.15 Palestino U. Catolica 2 : 1
25.10.15 U. Catolica Palestino 2 : 0
09.02.15 U. Catolica Palestino 3 : 2
25.08.14 Palestino U. Catolica 2 : 1
01.02.14 U. Catolica Palestino 5 : 3
There is no room for misstake for hosts , they just have to won this one if they want participation at Copa Libertadores.Coach Mario Salas Saieg (wich is one of the best coaches is S.America) will have all players available for this game , while for guests under question are Alarcon (who scored 1st goal at previous game) and Valenzuela.Last match here , Catolica won 2:0 i expect same today again.For thoose who play at more risk i suggest Ah1(-1,5) i go to alittle safier and go for a home win , wich should not be controversial.
Good Luck fellas :)
