Matecañas and Escarlatas promise a good game

Julián Andrés Santa

Football Saturday in La Perla del Otún. Starting at 6:10 at night, Deportivo Pereira receives América de Cali at the Hernán Ramírez Villegas stadium in a duel valid for the tenth date of the first semester of the Colombian League. Both Matecañas and Escarlatas promise to play a great game in a stadium that will be packed due to the good campaign being carried out by the team led by Leonel Álvarez, who continues to serve his suspension, so his technical assistant Rubén Darío Bedoya is still in line.

Regarding the news among the players summoned from the rojiamarillo for this duel, the presence of defender Nicolás Giraldo stands out, who recovered from his injury. In that order of ideas, the athletes suitable for this duel are: Salvador Ichazo, Franklin Mosquera, Eber Moreno, Nicolás Giraldo, Jean Pestaña, José Moya, Yeison Suárez, Jhonny Jordan, Ewill Murillo, Emiro Garcés, Juan David Ríos, Andrés Ibarguen , Darwin Quintero, Yesus Cabrera, Faber Gil, Alejandro Piedrahíta, Nicolás Rengifo and Santiago Gómez.

Let us remember that after the expulsion of Santiago Aguilar in the last 3-3 draw against Junior de Barranquilla in the Olympic Village, central defender Emiro Garcés will be in his place this afternoon. Furthermore, one of the questions has to do with the winger Nicolás Giraldo, who participated in the previous press conference, so it is believed that he would be a first baseman to receive the Cali reds.

America won the last

Last year was the most recent confrontation between both teams in the Perla del Otún where América de Cali took the three points by winning 2-4. Diego Hernández and Yeison Suárez scored for Matecaña, while Quiñones, Adrián Ramos, Víctor Ibarbo and Barrios scored for the visitor.

Pending beating América in Pereira

Since Deportivo Pereira returned to the highest category of Colombian football, they have not been able to beat Cali Rojo again at Hernán Ramírez Villegas but they have done so at Pascual Guerrero. This is how they have faced each other four times in the capital of Risaralda with a balance of three visitor wins and one draw. The last time the Matecañas defeated their rival at home was in the promotion tournament in 2016 by the slightest difference with a score by Rafael Navarro.


Deportivo Pereira has 17 points in the standings, while América de Cali has nine.
