In 1994, the Crusaders lost the championship to the Universidad de Chile after leading all year.

For the 28th, the scenario is similar. The Catholic University remains strong as a candidate for the title and has resisted the constant siege of the University of Concepción, which has loosened in the last part. For its part, despite the bitter season, the University of Chile has climbed the position in the final directly to second place, shifting even UdeC, which closed the first round as a leader.

Thus, ghosts began to reappear. Néstor Raúl Gorosito, one of those bitter memories, complained in an interview with La Tercera: "I hope we do not repeat the scandal and shame 94," he admitted.

But the fear only lasted a few days. While the championship will be determined at the end of the week, on the 29th – which has ended a heart attack with three simultaneous matches – the choice to repeat the story is omitted.

Universidad Católica is one point away from the cries of champions in Chile football after beating O & # 39; Higgins 1-0. For its part, Universidad de Chile signed a goalless draw against Deportes Iquique and came out of the fight for the title, giving the second option to University Concepción, which defeated San Luis de Quillota at Ester Roa Rebolledo.

UC stroked the title

The goal came from José Pedro Fuenzalida's hand at the end of the first half, with which he made sure to reach the final date with three more points than Universidad de Concepción.

"We will think about winning, we are one step away, but there is a final pull to achieve what we want" and crown the job this year, said Argentina striker Diego Buonanotte, a team reference, at the end of the match.

Fans opposite celebrate victory with euphoria and believe that the return of the Olympics will arrive at the last date. They must face Deportes Temuco to visit, but even the lottery will allow them to lift the title.

While the scenario is profitable, winning is not easy for UC. The visiting team, led by Marco Antonio Figueroa, provided a difficult battle, especially at the start of 45 minutes. However, it almost always fails the last pass. On the other hand, Miguel Pinto cut a penalty to Luciano Aued.

With this victory, those led by Beñat San José reached 58 points. The only team that can hold the cross celebrations is Universidad de Concepción, which reaches 55 by defeating San Luis. Although on the next date Campanile – in theory – will have a difficult task to visit: Colo Colo.

Meanwhile, O Higgins reached 38 points and remained in ninth place, with the illusion of seizing seventh place to Spain Union, which for now holds the last place in the Copa Sudamericana.

UdeC prepares for the attack

They will fight for the title until the last day. Also local, UdeC does its job before the bottom. With goals from Walter Ponce and Francisco Portillo, the South defeated San Luis and condemned him to play in the second division next year.

The students of Francisco Bozán opened an account in the first minute of the match, after a center on the ground in the Quillotana area.

The rivals, in addition to a blow by the early goal, experienced the expulsion of their goalkeeper Ignacio González, on 20 minutes, after cutting with his hand the progress of Campanile. In his successor go to the exporter of the University of Chile, Nelson Espinoza.

With 10 players, the game climbed for the visitors who, in addition, at the close of the first faction, saw how Francisco Portillo scored 2-0 with an accurate header.

With this result, Universidad de Concepción reached 55 points and is the only one who will have the option to refute the title against UC (58 points) on the last day.

San Luis, on the other hand, lives with 23 units at the bottom of the table, being the first to go down to First B 2019.

U. Chile is out of battle

When he has to take the final step, he doesn't get to the task. Universidad de Chile played a bad and almost goalless match against Iquique Sports, which took the opportunity to win the National Championship to UC at the last moment.

Before the National Stadium with more than 45 thousand spectators, Frank Kudelka's squad showed the shortcomings that had been successfully hidden in the past few days and seemed impotent to rivals who officially signed their stay in the First Division. Zafo from a descendant who has signed San Luis and will also spray into second equipment: Everton, Palestino or Deportes Temuco.

Deportes Iquique has several approaches to the opponent's goal, in the framework of a very low first round. Some of the approaches of Rolón and Pernía marked some excitement in the regions, even though without real risk for De Paul.

In the second half, Kudelka chose early for the entry of David Pizarro, trying to give more games to the blue midfield. An idea that cannot be done, because the Dragon can control without problems the onslaught of the place, which is a product of several Vaz patriada – some saviors in the image of the university – or attempts to overflow Rodriguez and Beausejour by laterals. Little for the team that wants to win the title.

Meanwhile, from every dispute, Saturday Colo Colo defeated Huachipato 2-1. Gabriel Torres opened an account in 36 minutes, but the popular one returned it with a score of arscar Opazo (60) and Iván Morales (77) and – despite a weak campaign – securing a place at the Copa Sudamericana next year.

But even though both come out of the equation, the definition is red: the Crusaders' defeat and UdeC's victory will equalize both teams and force the final to fight the champions.
