Millonarios continues to do the job at home and remains undefeated at the El Campín stadium in the BetPlay I-2024 League. This Wednesday, the ambassador beat América de Cali in a commitment that had patience, intelligence, definition and fight to add three crucial points in the championship.
And the first half was very even, with two combative, enthusiastic teams, with the mission of reaching the areas to score, although the goal did not come. Forces were measured and a vibrant match was seen, far from perfection, but close to pride between two greats.
In the second half, Millonarios was superior from the start, improved a lot in ball possession and was much more dynamic in the last few meters. And although he looked better, he did not despair, he had cool blood and patience.
At minute 58 came the goal that ended the match, but left the controversy on matchday 5: Andrés Llinás won in the scarlet area and it was left to Leonardo Castro to score 1-0. And although the VAR gave Millonarios license to celebrate, many doubts remained in the graphics and in the position of the ambassador striker.
But the Albiazul fans celebrated. VAR or referee decisions are not their problem. His thing was to explode with joy for a more than deserved advantage.
From the moment of the goal, Millonarios decided to hold on to the 1-0 lead and gave the responsibility to a desperate América, who had flashes with the entry of Michael Barrios, but who looked very bad with Edwin Cardona.
Millonarios was erratic in departures and deliveries. He could not counterattack and only retreated. The ambassador suffered greatly; Gamero despaired due to the lack of brainpower to finish the game, but he was surely calmed by the determination that his team put into it.
Triumph that revives the blue hospital.
