The midfielder Mackalister Silva scored the goal with which Millonarios defeated Alianza Petrolera 1-0 this Sunday, a result that maintains its options to win a pass to the final, where Deportivo Cali is already. The other match, the one that closed the date, between América de Cali -six points- and Deportes Tolima -eight points-, was postponed by a torrential downpour that struck Cali and flooded the Pasto. Of this set, only eight minutes were played and what remains will be played this Monday morning, as determined by the Major Division of Colombian Soccer (Dimayor), which is the organizer of the championship.

Millionaires, knowing that the only chance to stay alive to embark on the final was to win, attacked Alianza Petrolera from the beginning, which had goalkeeper José Luis Chunga as its guardian angel. The shots of Jeider Riquett, Fernando Uribe, twice; and one more of Mackalister Silva turned Chunga into a figure, which left the Millonarios fans unable to shout the goal. Alianza held out until minute 74, when those led by Alberto Gamero were able to celebrate Silva’s goal, which capitalized on a pass from Émerson Rodríguez. Millionaires had options to increase the score with shoes from Ricardo Márquez and Rodríguez but Chunga saved his team again. For now, the ‘Ambassadors’ secured their pass to the 2022 Copa Libertadores de América and maintains the illusion of playing the league title with Deportivo Cali. With his triumph, Millonarios accumulates 8 points and awaits the final result of the match between América de Cali and Deportes Tolima, who if he wins can make things very difficult for him.

In any case, regardless of what happens with that result, the team that will accompany Deportivo Cali in the final will be known on the closing day of the home runs. There Millonarios receives América de Cali and Deportes Tolima will do the same with Alianza Petrolera. So far these matches will be played on Wednesday 15 of this month, but may undergo changes due to the postponed match.

Meanwhile, Deportivo Cali, led by Venezuelan strategist Rafael Dudamel, got his pass to the final after beating Junior 2-0, his last hurdle. The closing game against Deportivo Pereira will be pending. On the other hand, for the record, Atlético Nacional’s 5-1 win against Deportivo Pereira was left, a bulky scoreboard that was of no use to ‘Verde de la Montaña’ because it had already been eliminated.
