Fortaleza is a team that is currently playing in the second tier in Colombia, and at the beginning of the new season, they recorded two wins, two draws, and two defeats. At their Municipal de Chia stadium, they still don’t have a defeat, and they have 2 wins and 1 draw. Today they will play in the best lineup without many changes, and good support from the fans in Bogota is expected. Last season this team had great results, but due to the strange system of the competition, they failed to place in the strongest rank.
On the other hand, the Union Magdalena team plays in the first league, and is currently in 17th place with 1 win, 4 draws, and 2 defeats, with a 0-2-2 record away from their stadium. Coach Rodriguez stated that the Cup competition is not their priority and today he decided to rest 15 players from the first team. These players are first goalkeeper Sanchez (7/0), Palomino (7/0), Baier (7/0), Contreras (6/1), Camargoa (6/1), Correa (6/0), Romero (5/0), Cartilia (5/0), Gil (5/0), Colorado (5/0), Angula (4/0), Mejia (4/0), Muniva (3/0), Pena (3/0), Rodriguez (3/0) and Guisao (2/0). The home team wants to return to the successes from last season, the guests are among the weaker teams in the strongest rank, and today they are without almost all important players, which is an opportunity for Fortaleza to win the match before the rematch in Magdalena.
