Catholic University and Colo Colo will define the Chilean soccer champion in the next two weeks, at the close of the 2021 season of the National Championship. A coronation that will arrive in less than three weeks and may have one of those final reserved.

Cruzados and albos are tied with 58 points at the top of the standings (ten more than the third, Audax Italiano) two dates from the term. If the parity is maintained until the close; there will be a defining match that will be played the week after the last date.

Therefore, both teams will try to settle the discussion in advance. They will play at the same time on Sunday, November 28 and Saturday, December 4, in order for the monarch to decide on the field.

The UC will face Mario Salas and Huachipato and will close the visit to Everton, while Colo Colo awaits to receive Unión Española and travel to Antofagasta to define on Angamos avenue. The forecasts give a technical tie between now and the close.

According to the Bases of the National Championship, “if there is equality in score in the first place, the champion will be defined in a single match, to be played on the date, stadium and time determined by the ANFP Board of Directors.”

The location has already been chosen and corresponds to the Ester Roa Rebolledo Bicentennial Stadium in Concepción, which has the approval of the two possible finalists. In fact, UC won the Super Cup last week on that stage.

The resolution of the championship can crown an unprecedented four-time championship of the Catholic University, while for the albos it can open the door to recover the Huemul de Plata, which is given to the champions of each season and the Cacique has not received since 2017.
