Curicó enjoyed a mesmerising home victory against Cobresal at Estadio La Granja on Saturday. Curicó arrived with the intention of increasing their league score following a disappointing 2-2 draw with Huachipato in their previous game whilst Cobresal were coming from consecutive wins against Antofagasta and Univ de Chile. As the table looks today, Curicó are currently 2nd with 29 points from 17 matches, while Cobresal sit in 5th, with 27 points from 17.

After a goalless first half, Curicó applied pressure in the second and were rewarded, when Diego Coelho found the net at the 69 minute mark, leaving the final score at 1-0.

Substitutions for Curicó included Diego Coelho, Mario Sandoval and Felipe Fritz for Felipe Ortiz, Bayron Oyarzo and Federico Castro, repectively. Cobresal brought on Sebastian Silva, Cristopher Mesias, Cesar Munder and Nelson Sepulveda, to replace Mauro Gonzalez, Gaston Lezcano, Juan Gaete and Marcelo Jorquera.

The referee booked one player from Cobresal, Cesar Munder.

Cobresal and Curicó will next play at home to Unión La Calera and U. Católica respectively.
