Atlético Nacional was once again the executioner of Pereira and got into the leadership of the Betplay League

This Friday, March 17, the BetPlay 2023-I League was continued, with the game played at the Hernán Ramírez Villegas stadium in the city of Pereira between the local and Atlético Nacional, reliving for the third time in year one duel that had moved great passions. It should be remembered that the previous duels had been for the Colombian Super League, where the greens won the title after having to suffer against the ‘matecañas’.

Now, by date 9, Pereira vs. Nacional was the game that opened one of the most decisive days, since it is the last one before the half of the tournament is marked. For those from Medellín, it meant the latent possibility of being partial leaders of the standings and snatching that privileged position from Águilas Doradas.

Surprisingly, among the initialists was Jarlan Barrera who had been criticized again during the week for his state of form. However, this time he received the confidence of Paulo Autuori to be there from the start and the midfielder responded quickly. In the 8th minute after a personal move, he moved towards his left leg to find the best angle and take an impossible shot for the rival goalkeeper that ended in a great goal.

After the goal, the game returned to a roundtrip between both squads with dangerous approximations that almost brought the locals closer to a tie, but could also be the extension of the result in favor of the purslane. The interest of the offensive zone was diminished by the good performances of the goalscorers, Kevin Mier and Aldair Quintana, who under the three sticks were quite solid, leaving the result at the end of the first half by 0-1.

For the second part, Deportivo Pereira tried from the first minutes to get closer to the equalizing goal. However, the great performance of goalkeeper Kevin Mier always prevailed against the rivals’ shots.

The clearest action of the goal that the matecañas It occurred in a shot by Arley Rodríguez at point blank range that Mier took out with his right hand. Unfortunately for the local team, the rebound that remained at Ramírez’s feet went over the goal.

Faced with the siege of his rival, Nacional woke up and a few minutes later disturbed the frame of Aldair Quintana. After a lethal counterattack, the ball was left at the feet of Jefferson Duque who squandered what was the second goal in the first instance. However, the shot was bounced off the feet of Pabón, who took a strong shot that saved the goalkeeper again.

Finally, the goal came for the purslane about the last few minutes. Forward Jefferson Duque won a ball behind the rival defenders and then eluded the rival goalkeeper and defined sharply to make it 2-0.

With this victory, Nacional reached 16 points in the BetPlay League and partially reached the top of the championship, waiting for what Águilas Doradas does, a team that will face Millonarios on Sunday at El Campín.
