Colo Colo, the million dollar match and the “trauma” of definitions in Macul

US$ 1.050.000. That is the millionaire figure that Colo Colo will ensure if tonight he defeats Jorge Wilstermann of Bolivia and ensures his place in the knockout stages of the Copa Libertadores. Of course, it does not depend on itself since it will be attentive to what Peñarol make before Athletico Paranaense.

The amount is well seen in the Black and White directive because it would help to somehow clean up the 2020 complex that the institution has had both in sports and economics. However, if the cast of Macul does not access the round of the best 16, but qualifies for the Copa Sudamericana, the amount is reduced by half (just over US $ 500 thousand).

Yes, It is not the only “pressure” with which the “Cacique” will deal. Must yes or yes overcoming the “trauma” of definitions in the Monumental Stadium, an issue that in recent years has been synonymous with frustrations and hot flashes.

Without going further, his early elimination in the Copa Sudamericana 2019 was at home against Universidad Católica de Ecuador via penalties: did not take advantage of the victory obtained in Quito and missed a good option to advance.
