Cobresal welcomed the fighting Huachipato in their last home match. They were superior for most of the match and opened the scoring in the 31st minute, but the guests equalized in the 62nd minute after a penalty and remained at 1:1. They hold the last 7th place, which leads to the Copa Sudamericana group stage, and will give their best to keep it. In general, they are doing very well so far with significant home (6-2-2), and one of the main factors is the high attitude of Estadio El Cobre de El Salvador, which is in the Atacama desert, and all teams have huge problems playing there.
Antofagasta played their most recent game on September 7, where they hosted Curico Unido, but the appearance was mediocre. In the last weeks, they have had problems with Covid 19, and that’s the reason why they postponed their matches. They have three consecutive games without defeat (1-2-0) and remain very close to the top 7 of the standings, but away from home, they are not stable in their performance with only one win in 9 games.
Cobresal traditionally is doing well at “El Cobre”, and expect to continue their good home tradition against Antofagasta (guests never win in their 15 mutual matches) and won important three points.
