Alianza Petrolera (DWLWD)
Alianza Petrolera did very well to hold for a 0-0 draw in their last match against CD Jaguares despite an early red card. The match started ferociously and Luciano Ospina was the first player to go into the referee's book just 11 minutes after kick off. Pable Bueno also received a yellow card in the 18th minute and was eventually sent off for receiving another yellow card seven minutes later. Thanks to the red card, CD Jaguares had enough time on the ball and tried so hard to find an opener but couldn't. Alianza was forced to make an early substitution in the first half, bringing on a defensive midfielder for an attacker. Alianza was able to defend compactly and even limited CD Jaguares to just four shots in the second half. The draw means that Alianza Petrolera now has two wins, two draws and one loss in their last five matches. They have scored four goals and conceded six goals across the five matches. Five of the six goals conceded came against Junior FC.
Once Caldas (DDDWL)
Once Caldas barely escaped with a 1-1 draw in their last match at home to La Equidad. La Equidad constantly threatened Once Caldas' goal post and eventually found a goal in the 36th minute. David Camacho was the quickest to react to a rebound after the goalkeeper parried away his own shot. La Equidad even tried doubling their lead in the first half but couldn't do so. Once Caldas played a little better in the second half and was compensated for their efforts with an own goal from La Equidad. Juan Mahecha unfortunately turned the ball into his own net after a corner was swung in by Billy Arce. The game ended 1-1 and both teams went home with one point each. The 1-1 stalemate marked the third consecutive draw for Once Caldas; they also have one win and one loss in their last five matches. In that period, they have scored and conceded five goals each.
