The miracle of the day came on account of the Atletico Bucaramanga. The leopard team needed to score goals to access the home runs and they did: 0-3 victory at the home of Deportivo Pereira with a Dayro Moreno plethoric.
First half equalized between two teams with different realities. While Matecaña needed to add to make a difference in the descent, the Bumangués team arrived with the possibility of qualifying for the finals.
The visit needed not only to win by a good goal difference but also to hope that their other opponents punctured. With the evident stress, the first minutes were complicated. Pereira had plenty of chances in the first 25′, but he missed.
At 34′ the story for Bucaramanga got even more complicated, after Ronaldo Tavera was injured due to a strong tackle by Andrés Correa. Michel Acosta had to supply it.
Eight minutes after the above, the illusion knocked on the doors of the leopard. Sherman Cárdenas sent a precise center to the area and Dayro, with a header, opened the account. Thus ended the first part.
The plugin was all of the visitors. The scoring opportunities were increasing and the goal did not take long. It was the same formula. Sherman’s side center and header, this time by Acosta, for the partial 2-0. One was missing, taking into account that Millos beat Alianza Petrolera by the minimum.
And at 88′, when the attacks came and went, Dayro became the savior of the night. Sherman saw the scorer alone in the right sector, he hit his feet and he sealed the final 0-3 and classification with a cross shot.
Bucaramanga was left with the eighth box, thanks to its 29 points and +2 in goal difference. Although Alianza had the same numbers, the balance tipped in favor of those led by ‘Piripi’ Osma thanks to the goals scored in the championship (27 vs 22).
