After a fairly lukewarm start and with very few risky occasions, The home team took the lead on the scoreboard thanks to an unfortunate own goal by Cristian Suárez (9′), who failed to clear an aerial ball well and sent it into the back of his own goal.

However, The advantage would not last long for the Llanero team. The thing is that in the 12th minute the referee awarded a dubious penalty for a foul on Fernando Cornejo, which Bryan Carrasco was in charge of converting into a goal (14′).

Carrasco was close to scoring again, but his shot went just wide. Anyway, In the 30th minute the comeback goal for the Tetracolors would come with a header from Gonzalo Sosa, who touched the third with a shot that was deflected by goalkeeper Yhonatan Yustiz (37′).

Despite the extensive dominance of the Arab team, the Venezuelan squad came out with a more offensive attitude at least at the beginning of the complement. Thus, in addition to a dangerous cross that César Rigamonti managed to control (52′), they had a header from Darwin Carrero that hit the roof of the goal.

Although The locals did not take their foot off the accelerator and incessantly searched for a tie, the visitor was able to withstand the attacks until the end and keep the 2-1 in their favor obtained in the first fraction.
