Copa Mustang leaders Atletico Huila may have to give up on their top
spot this weekend, following a 1-1 draw at Atletico Nacional.
Nacional scored the opening goal after 28 minutes at Atanasio Girardot stadium, and it was Jairo Palomino to put the hosts in the lead. Huila fought their way back however and Hernan Cordoba made it 1-1 shortly before the break.
As result of this draw, Independiente Medellin could conquer the lead on Sunday.
The entertaining clash between Quindio and Cartagena ended in a 3-2 win to the hosts. Hanyer Mosquera put Quindio ahead after 16 minutes, but had his goal cancelled out by Nestor Salazar in the 38th. Dany Santoya soon restored Quindio’s lead but this time it was Jose Najera to equalise seven minutes after the break.
The winning goal eventually came with ten minutes to play, and was scored by Quindio’s Adrian Aranda.
Millonarios suffered a rather painful 1-2 defeat by Deportivo Pasto. Carlos Hidalgo was of great importance to the guests, scoring in the 16th and 64th minutes to give his team a comfortable lead. Mauricio Casierra pulled one back in the 82nd minute, but it was too little, too late.
Pasto’s Hugo Centurion was sent off near full time and will miss his side’s next match due to suspension.
