The Ibagué team reaches its third consecutive final. In one he won the title against Millonarios adding his third star in history, while in the other he was defeated by Deportivo Cali led by Rafael Dudamel.
At the beginning of the year they played the BetPlay Superliga and won against the sugar producers and now the challenge is against Atlético Nacional, a team that has had negative numbers against this squad since the 2018 final.
They arrived at this phase of the tournament with 13 units, the product of four wins, one draw and only one loss against Equidad in Bogotá. They confirmed the favoritism by settling in the last instance of the tournament, making a presence in the quarterfinals of the BetPlay Cup and the eighth of the Libertadores.
Tolima will play its eighth final since the short tournaments were implemented in Colombia, they are fourth in this ranking only below their current rival, Junior and Independiente Medellín.
One of the DT’s doubts for this game is the presence of Jeison Lucumí, who left the concentration hours before the game due to the death of a close relative in the city of Cali.
