Rafael Dudamel defiende al Cali y sorprende a Colombia antes de la Libertadores

Deportivo Cali failed to win against La Equidad and worries for the Libertadores

At the start of date 14 of the Betplay League in Colombia, the current champion Deportivo Cali continues with an irregular season in the current Opening Tournament. The team led by Venezuelan coach Rafael Dudamel failed to win at the Estadio Metropolitano de Techo in Bogotá against its rival La Equidad.

The sugar team was largely dominating the match in the Bogota city, but the green team did not find a way to take that leadership on the field to the match scoreboard. The goals of Ortega and Acevedo remained intact and therefore the distribution of points for each team after finishing the 90 minutes in 0-0.

After the match played in Bogotá, coach Rafael Dudamel analyzed Deportivo Cali’s new draw and talked about what will be the next participation in the Copa Libertadores.

“For us, this match had added value since it is the match prior to the start of the Copa Libertadores. We have to plan everything that comes to us and the idea was to give minutes to players who have not usually been competing”Dudamel pointed out.

“We wanted to do something different, facing what is to come. We will have long, international trips, arrive and play. We play against a high-quality rival and we seek to hurt them”, the coach continued.

“Now, we will focus on the Copa Libertadores and what we will do on Tuesday. We had everything planned, except playing with one less, but that’s football,” added the Venezuelan.
