Tolima extended their winning run with an impressive 0-1 win against Junior FC in round 14. Despite being limited to 37% of possession during the game, Tolima were more clinical and had more shots than Junior FC (12 to 8). Estefano Arango opened the scoring in the 15th minute by hitting a well placed left footed shot into the bottom left corner when the ball fell kindly to him in the center of the box. Three yellow cards were shown in the first half, two to Junior FC and one to Tolima. Both sides made a few substitutions when the second half started in hope of changing their fortunes.

Chico FC's rollercoaster season continued with a loss to Rionegro Aguilas at home. Despite playing against the league leaders, Chico FC showed incredible grit to outplay Aguilas. Chico FC had about 58% of the possession and constantly threatened Aguilas' defense. However, Aguilas were the one to create a big chance in the first half which they missed.

The second half started well and both sides were creating chances in an attempt to take the lead but the both defenses were resilient. Tragedy struck Chico FC when they received a red card in the 86th minute and Delvin Alfonzo also got sent off two minutes later after a second yellow card, bringing them down to nine men.
