Copa Mustang II leaders Independiente Medellin knew that all pressure was on arch rivals Nacional to win. Nacional are almost certain of qualification for the next round, but a win against their traditional enemies would have left things practically decided.
Nacional did dominate throughout the game, but never found a way past Medellin’s defense and goalkeeper Bobadilla.
Medellin remain in first place and will stay there until the end of the regular season. Nacional are fourth and are still well on course to reach the next round.
Deportes Tolima beat America de Cali 2-0, enough to secure their spot in the second round. Davinson Monsalve scored the opener in the 11th minute, and Rodrigo Marangoni doubled the advantage in minute 37.
America’s Jose Velez was sent off with a second yellow card in the 39th minute.
