The duo combined again to double Sante Fe's lead two minutes into added time of the first half (45+2). Atletico Nacional finally got one goal back when Franco Leys dripped Eric Ramirez in the penalty box.

The goal only proved to be a consolation as Victor Ibarbo restored Sante Fe's lead in the 88th minute with a header provided by Edwin Cardona's corner kick.
