Dimayor says that Llaneros players did not appear for summons – Colombian Soccer – Sports

The disciplinary commissions of the championship and the Dimayor continue with their investigations into what happened in the match between Llaneros and Union Magdalena, last December 4.

That day, the Samarian team won 1-2, with two goals in the spare time, the second of them, achieved thanks to a totally passive attitude of the Llaneros players, who watched the ball pass until Jonathan Segura secured the victory. .

That result left Fortaleza with no chance of promotion, which reached the last date as leader, but lost 1-2 with Bogotá FC, a score that opened the doors of promotion to the two teams that faced each other in Villavicencio.
