Rancaguinos must add to reach the last date with specific options to qualify for the Copa Sudamericana 2019 and if that happens UC will not be a crowned champion at home. In addition, both the University of Chile and the Concepcion University hope that the heavenly "grace" in the yard at the foot.
With confidence at the top O'Higgins will go to San Carlos de Apoquindo this Sunday. The Rancaguaes want to surprise the Catholic University and thus recruit the key units to be able to determine at the latest date a possible classification of the 2019 Copa Sudamericana.
In this sense, in the team, they have a clear idea what to do, as Coach Marco Antonio Figueroa said, when there will be voices that will receive the three points and do not win both the University of Chile and the University of Concept will be a crowned champion of the tournament.
Therefore, as Figueroa said, "it is in our interest that he needs to win, because he will have to press us a little more, he will have to take us off the ball and this requires a double effort."
In addition, for "Phantom", the cast of Beñat San José is very similar to Camapanil, who has clearly won the last date. "They are a team that does not have a lot of intensity, they push in place and I said it once with Conce U. Catholics up to 20, 25 minutes is a team and then another team and I think we will do something different there.
He added that from this point of view, they must "try to get together first in the physical part and then try to overcome them in football, which is a complex mission."
Now in the rancagüino campus there is clarity in what they have to do. The midfielder Nicholas Orose said they should have the peace to make their game, given that the Catholics would want to go out with everything to look for a victory to give them the title of the tournament.
"They will come from the very beginning to want to push us and enter the arc, with the support of their people, with all the euphoria they can have, but it is up to us to stay calm, to move the ball, to try not to move the game and we will obviously take the necessary precautions to go to the three points, "he said.
The former Racing de Avellaneda also pointed out that "they are struggling with important things but we have a goal as a group and we will do that We will not get a Catholic point to not celebrate but we go for the points for us date, we can celebrate something next year (qualify for the cup) ".
Now O'Higgins will have a significant drop in this game. The balance in the midfield that Matthias Vera gives will not be, as the trans-Andes are discontinued due to the accumulation of yellow cards. In order to replace his position, Figueroa would have decided Tomás Alarcón, a youth team under 20, who could perfectly fulfill Vera's duties. If so, the rest of the team will not move it and will act on a formula that has yielded results. With regard to the lack of former Chicago, Oroz said that "Matti is a very important player for us, he showed it during the tournament, one of the most regular, but Tommy has a lot of conditions and Juan (Fuentes), but whoever touches him will he did it very well. "
PREPARATION OF PARTY
Pablo Calandria, one of the leaders of the Rancagua team, said the game would have a lot of spice on Sunday, as "we are in a moment of definition, the teams depend on us, the Catholic is an indicator alone, and others depend on taking something (U and U of Conce) ".
In turn, the top scorer who will survive his last game with Casaquilla on Capo de Provincia commented that they are good because "we overcome the bad season, we are very confident, seeing the opportunity to qualify for the Cup and we are ready, and it is always good to play with this frame, with a full court that motivates and is nice to play like that. "
Finally, Roberto Zareda, pointed out in the previous, that the Catholic "unfortunately for them will face one of the best versions of O'Higgins this year." The way we play is clear, the conviction, the hierarchy of some positions and that makes us effective both in attack and in defense. "
It should be noted that the sky will work this Saturday in the monastery and on Sunday will face Miguel Pinto; Alejandro Marquez, Albert Assevedo, Juan Fuentes and Roberto Zareda; Thomas Alarcon, Ramon Fernandez and Nicholas Orose; Agustin Gutierrez, Maxi Salas and Nicholas Mazola.
Meanwhile, Judge Roberto Tobar, who comes to give justice to the first stage of Coppia Libertadores 2018, will be at the head of the fourth session in San Carlos de Apocindo.
Parallel to the game between Universidad Católica and O'Higgins, the Universidad de Chile vs Iquique and Universidad de Concepción matches against San Luis will also be played. The struggle for the title is the rancagüinos guests as one day in which they could present the discontinued opportunity to be champions in their field. It should be noted that in the sky do not add three points in San Carlos de Apocnido from the season 2013 (September 21), the year in which Eduardo Berizo's hand won the crown.
