Catolica draw again

Universidad Catolica dropped points for the third consecutive game as they drew 1-1 against Everton in the Chilean Primera Division.


The match

Matias Leiva put the visitors ahead after seven minutes, heading in to the corner after great wing play from Dilan Zuniga. It was his first goal in the league this season.

The back-to-back champions equalised just after the half-hour mark. Striker Fernando Zampedri controlled the ball in the box and turned past his marker to aim a cross to the back post.

18-year-old Gonzalo Tapia leapt above his market to score his first ever professional goal.

Tapia then feigned contact to win a penalty, but after a VAR review, it was correctly ruled that there was no foul.

Catolica nearly found a winner in the second half after a great reverse pass from Zampedri, but Cesar Munder’s shot was saved.


What it means

Catolica’s lead at the top has been cut to four points as they drew their third consecutive game. The lead was nine just a couple of weeks ago. Everton sit in 10th place. Catolica face second bottom Deportes Iquique on Monday with five games left to retain their crown.


La Calera reduce lead

Union La Calera took advantage of the leaders slipping up by beating ten-man Audax Italiano 3-1.


The match

Jeisson Vargas scored twice, including a brilliant solo goal in the 16th minute to open the scoring. He turned past two players, drove forward with the ball and then curled a shot into the bottom corner.

The hosts had Jorge Henriquez sent off six minutes later, but they stayed in the game and got themselves level through a free header by Fabian Torres from a set piece.

The visitors pushed for a winner and Vargas stepped up once again with a dipping strike from distance that caught the goalkeeper out. It was his sixth goal of the season.

Striker Andres Vilches secured the win with his 12th of the season in added time. The hosts were left two against two at the back after a misplaced pass and Vilches guaranteed all three points with a precise shot into the far corner.


What it means

Two away wins in a row scoring three goals in each means Juan Pablo Vojvoda’s side are just four points off the top with a game in hand. They face Cobresal on Saturday evening.
