With this result, the red of Antioquia must win the four games that remain to continue fighting for the classification and cut a streak of four consecutive eliminations.

The first minutes of the game were for an Alianza Petrolera that surprised Medellín with constant attacks on their area. Pablo Bueno at minute 3 and from the middle distance showed the intentions of the refining team. At 12, David Loaiza responded in the same way, but goalkeeper Pier Luigi Grazziani was vigilant.

The game had fallen in intensity, but grew in strength, to such an extent that Leonardo Castro saw the yellow card at 12 minutes and was replaced near the end of the initial stage. For Alliance, they regained control of the ball and tried to make partnerships, Edwin Torres, Juan Portilla and Bayron Garcés tested the reflexes of Andrés Mosquera Marmolejo.

But it was Agustín Vuletich at minute 31 who generated the clearest play of the game so far, with a shot outside the area and the ball crashed into the left vertical. The DIM needed a win so as not to lose track of their competitors for a place among the eight and this was a direct game.

However, the local was the one that opened the scoring at minute 34 through Jhon Pérez, the Santander midfielder received the ball from Freddy Flórez and with a shot of 30 meters he left Marmolejo without an option, scoring a great goal and celebrating to the public of Barrancabermeja.

After the goal, Medellín went out in search of the equalizer and tried by all means, aerial game, medium distance, but it was not possible. At the aforementioned exchange of Leonardo Castro for Kevin Londoño, Alianza Petrolera made a variant, entering Brayan Gil instead of Pablo Bueno.

The last minutes of the first half were for the locals, who had to score the second goal through Edwin Torres, but the ball went near the powerful goal.

In the complementary stage, Alianza Petrolera came out with great momentum and at minute 4, Jhon Pérez after a counterattack extended the advantage on the scoreboard for the locals. The Santander midfielder showed a great level in this game, scoring a double and infecting his teammates with that desire.

With the disadvantage in the result, Medellín recovered the ball and tried to get closer to Grazziani’s goal. Vladimir Hernández, Agustín Vuletich and David Loaiza tried, but could not beat the aurinegro goal. In an attempt to generate offensive volume, Julio Comesaña decided on another change, putting Sebastián Hernández in place of David Loaiza. Alianza responded with two variants: Bayron Garcés and Edwin Torres withdrew, joining Sebastián Acosta and Andrés Morales.

At minute 22, Juan Guillermo Arboleda from middle distance crashed the ball against the horizontal. The side took advantage of a pass from Kevin Londoño.

At minute 31, Alianza Petrolera exhausted its moments of change by retiring Jhon Pérez and Andrés Morales and entering Julián Guevara and James Sánchez. Medellín responded with a variant, entering Juan Pablo Gallego instead of Kevin Londoño.

The final minutes of the match were for a Medellín desperate to cut the advantage on the scoreboard and an Alianza that held and counterattacked. At minute 35, Sebastián Hernández insisted but his shot was deflected.

Then it went back and forth, with approaches in both areas, but at minute 44 came the third goal for Alianza that settled the match through Sebastián Acosta, who took advantage of a ball in the area and beat Marmolejo with his left leg.
