Soccer | They meet at 2 in the afternoon at the Hernán Ramírez Villegas
Julián Andrés Santa
Football Sunday at the Perla del Otún. Starting at 2 in the afternoon, Deportivo Pereira receives a visit from Deportivo Independiente Medellín at the Hernán Ramírez Villegas stadium, for date 18 of the Colombian League. The Matecañas arrive motivated after having obtained their first victory in the Copa Libertadores in the middle of the week.
THEY REPEAT THE END OF LAST YEAR
Curiously, once again Risaraldenses and Paisas will meet on the 7th, repeating the final of last semester, which was on December 7 with the Olympic return of Deportivo Pereira. Now they are measured again in the Perla del Otún, this time on May 7.
ADD FOR RECLASSIFICATION
On the sides of the locals, there are no longer mathematical options to be able to think about a home run classification, however, Matecaña hopes to be able to add more points, thinking about reclassification and continuing to have a good average in the relegation table so as not to suffer from this in 2024.
MEDELLÍN FORCED TO WIN
The Antioqueños arrive in Pereira with the obligation to get the three points to maintain their aspirations for a place in the top eight. They have 22 points in the standings and a defeat in the capital of Risaral would leave them on the brink of elimination.
