National Championship

Universidad Católica did not go beyond the tie, wasted almost an hour with one more man against Everton and tied, so it remains stagnant in the standings of the National Championship.

Universidad Católica had to make an effort until the last second to rescue a draw against Everton, on matchday 21 of the National Championship, despite having one more man for nearly an hour of commitment and only Gary Kagelmacher’s goal six minutes from the final made them achieve 1-1 to add a point.

It is more than clear that a very unlikely scenario has to happen for the Crusaders to be able to dream of a five-time championship, but now they are letting go of opportunities to get closer to qualifying for continental tournaments, which is beginning to be a much more realistic goal.

With the equality in the Sausalito stadium in Viña del Mar, those led by Ariel Holan reach 26 points to establish themselves in 10th place, three points from the seventh place that gives access to the South American and that is currently being occupied against those who, precisely , were his rivals this Saturday.

Similarly, those from San Carlos de Apoquindo still have a pending match for which it was rescheduled against Unión Española due to the bad stadium of the Santa Laura stadium. However, it is a rival that has had a very good season.

Day 21 of the National Championship still has five more games to play and one of those is Huachipato against Unión La Calera on Monday. In the event that the Steelers win against the Cementeros, Universidad Católica will fall one more position in a very complicated campaign.
