The "match by match" and the "step by step" took the Campanile to this time of year. UdeC has reached the last two dates of the year with the option of being champion intact, although if a combination of results is given, U. Católica can raise the cup this afternoon.
But in UdeC they only think about beating San Luis, their penultimate opponent in the intense fight to close a place in the next Copa Libertadores or, if it happens, maintain the cup. O DT Francisco Bozán He says he's not worried, because now U. de Chile is totally involved in the fight to become champion. "This invalidates the speech we made in the year, where we prepare one game at a time," said the coach Auricielo, about the much debated whether or not the goal is to be champion.
Tomorrow's game will be played simultaneously with the duel that take UC against O & # 39; Higgins and U. of Chile against Iquique. "It's an honor to be inside the teams scheduled at the same time. It's the result of everything the players have done in the year," he said. Francisco Bozán, adding that "I have no experience in simultaneous games since I am not in that situation."
The coach of Campanile was once in that kind of definition, yes, when he directed Barnechea and faced the Cobresal who was called champion in 2015. Of course, he was not the protagonist of the simultaneity of the party, because it was the interested nortinos with whom the U. Católica did not defeat Iquique in the capital.
As it was the year, there is a sense of injustice if the UdeC can not stay at least with the second place in the table. Almost the entire tournament was behind UC and they were even leaders sometimes, but the attack of the "U" and the falls as a visit left the Campanile accordingly alone, at the moment, with the third place.
"We understood the importance of this game, we managed to be regular for 28 dates, we did well and the idea is to ratify the good that we did at home," added Bozán.
And if the numbers as visitors have been bad for UdeC, in Ester Roa the situation has been very different: the 14 games that Auricielos played at home, won 10, equaled 3 and lost just one, which was also on the first date of the championship against O & # 39; Higgins.
And St. Louis?
It is the rival of today that, on paper, should be accessible to UdeC. The same thought in the U. of Chile the last date, but celebrated with all the triumph only in the latter and by penal launch.
Quillotanos will play their last cards to stay in the First Division, a category in which they depend on a miracle to follow. "With a new coach, they improved their performance on the court and their numbers. They are not far from San Luis that a few years ago was struggling to get international drinks. We know how complicated it is and the players they have, "said Bozán.
At the end of this edition, San Luis could have gone down without playing, taking into account the game played by Everton and Palestino. A triumph of Viñamarino condemned the descent to the rival of the Campanile.
"The emotional context will be determined by this, but in football there is a basis on which we will work," said the UdeC coach.
