Barcelona SC has never managed to win at the Rodrigo Paz Delgado stadium since its inauguration in 1997. Despite the long undefeated League of Quito, the bullfighting team did take an Olympic lap on that stage, with its victory in the 2019 Alberto Spencer Cup.
In the final of the event, the bullfighters won 1-0 in the first leg at the Monumental Stadium and drew 1-1 at the White House. With the aggregate score of 2-1, the yellows celebrated with a return and a celebration with their fans, located in the upper part of the General Sur.
The Alberto Spencer Cup was an unofficial friendly tournament organized by the GolTV network, owner of the television rights of LigaPro. The event was held in the midst of the paralysis of the Ecuadorian Championship for the Copa América 2019.
Only four teams participated in the competition with a direct elimination format with home and away matches. In the semifinal, Barcelona SC eliminated Emelec and Liga did it with Aucas.
This Tuesday, December 29, Liga de Quito will host Barcelona SC, but this time for the definition of the LigaPro 2020 title. The previous week, albos and yellows equaled 1-1 at the Monumental stadium.
