Atlético Nacional ganó en Tunja y pasó a la siguiente ronda de la Liga BetPlay

Moments of happiness lived this Saturday Atlético Nacional, who defeated Patriotas de Tunja as a visitor (0-2)at the La Independencia stadium and became the first team to make sure -at least virtually- in the home runs of the BetPlay 1 2022 League, to the peace of mind of its fans.

The striker Jéfferson Duque, who returned to goal after a month and 18 days (57′), and the Sebastian Gomez midfielder (78′), they sentenced a new triumph of the ‘King of Cups’ in Boyacá territory, against a rival who was limited in his soccer expression and could not avoid falling on his field.

The first goal of the cold Tunja night, stained by the strong clashes between the eleventh ‘Verdolaga’ fans, arrived after a pass from the midfielder Andrés ‘Rifle’ Andrade to Duquewho with a cross shot and the complicity of goalkeeper Carlos Mosquera inflated the opposing nets.

And the ‘cherry’ for dessert It happened after Gómez hunted down a rebound in the area of ​​​​central defender Jonathan Ávila and with a precise shot from his left leg he defeated Mosquera again, who could not do anything in the face of the visitor’s effectiveness; less constant in attack, but lethal in its arrivals.

in the compromise the performance of the young goalkeeper Kevin Mier was keyone of the most outstanding of the team in his visit to the altiplano. In turn, the Baldomero Perlaza brand midfielder returned to the competition, after almost five months of inactivity, after the severe injury to his ankle.

With 30 points out of 42 playedFor a production of 71.42 percent, the Paisa cast will require -so that there is no doubt about their campaign- one more victory in the next six dates. This to assert himself at the mid-year party and play his sixth semifinal in Colombian soccer.

On the next day, the ‘Green’ from Antioquia will receive America de Cali: a team that has been plunged into a deep crisis of results and that has just fired its strategist, Risaraldense Juan Carlos Osorio, to whom he had to pay a juicy compensation of 1,200 million pesos to release the position.

This duel, considered the most important classic of rented football in the country, will take place next Sunday, April 10 (5:30 in the afternoon) at the Atanasio Girardot stadium in Medellin. It will be the ideal opportunity to continue strengthening the sports project of ‘El Arriero’ in the team.
