With just six days to go before the National Championship ends, it seems that Colo Colo will not miss out on the title this time. With 51 points, undefeated for several dates, he leads the standings with a nine-point advantage over his closest rivals, Curicó Unido and Ñublense, so star number 33 is almost a reality. Especially considering the solidity exhibited by Gustavo Quinteros’ team, who comes from winning, liking and thrashing Unión Española.
Thus, the albos, in addition, began to look askance at the next season, in which they hope to complete a better international participation. This year, the “Cacique” had to settle for third place in the group stage of the Copa Libertadores and an early elimination in the Copa Sudamericana.
In order not to repeat those results, the leadership began to move in search of names that offer a leap in quality to the team. And after securing the goals of Juan Martín Lucero, whose pass will be purchased, two names emerged.
The first, which the albo sports manager himself mentioned a few days ago, Daniel Morón, was that of Carlos Palacios, a talented national attacker who today is part of Vasco Da Gama, in the B of Brazilian soccer.
However, the one that appeared now is also very interesting: it is the Argentine naturalized Chilean Gabriel Arias, a 32-year-old goalkeeper who currently defends the colors of Racing Club de Avellaneda. so reported RedGoal in the last hours.
The goalkeeper, who has just been called up by Eduardo Berizzo for the matches against Morocco and Qatar at the end of September, recently returned to the starting role at “La Academia” after several months without playing as a result of a serious injury, and is perceived as an ideal replacement in case Brayan Cortés leaves the alba store.
This Tuesday, without going any further, Arias was the protagonist of the victory that Racing achieved against Patronato in the Argentine league and the media dedicated several praises to him. In Olé, for example, they explained that “the Chilean had a great performance and was decisive with a couple of saves that kept the goal at zero and avoided what would have been a more than painful victory against his people.”
