Deportes Temuco vs U. Catolica by Dajkula
Deportes Temuco hosts Universidad Catolica in the last round of the Chilean Apertura. The hosts have nothing really to play for and play that way. Temuco is 11`th with 16 points and 5 points out of the play -off zone for the Sud Americana. Temuco lost the last 4 matches and 6 of the last 8. Their form is in seriuos decline and now facing a team they really don`t like to play against.
Catolica is first in the Apertura after the beating they inflicted on Iquique in the last round. Catolica won by 6:2 on away and showed they are the best team in the league. The team is in rampant mood lately and just at the right time. The attack has been stellar and even they regulary concede it is no problem as they can score 3 or 4 against any team. It is the Mario Salas way.
Catolica has 28 points, 3 in front of Iquique and musn`t lose this game. If they do and Iquique wins they would play one more match with Iquique for the title. I think they would like to avoid that.
Even if Catolica needs only a draw Salas says they are going for the win, they can`t play any other way.
Temuco is in poor form but they also have a real hospital for this match. Even 8 players are injured or suspended having just 13 players for the match:" Diego Díaz(def.13-0), Matías Donoso(att.6-1), Jaime Soto(def.10-0), Matías Navarrete(def.5-1), Orlando Gutiérrez(def.12-2), Fernando Lazcano(mid.8-0), Sebastián Domínguez(att.11-0) y Sergio López(mid.14-2)".
There are no news about absences from Catolica but the best lineup will play.
Catolica won the last 7 against Temuco though most recently all in the cup.
There is no room for complacency in the Catolica team. The sooner they put this game to bed the sonner the celebrations can begin. Away win.
