Can Católica go full circle?
By Joel Sked
Small moments can have significant consequences. Like one 90 minute game of football – good or bad. The 2011 Chilean Primera División Apertura play-off final second-leg was one of those games; contested between great rivals Universidad de Chile and Universidad Católica.
UC had finished the regular season – 17 games – on top of the league table, where they had finished in 2010 when the league was a single championship of 34 games due to the World Cup in South Africa, and they led 2-0 from the first-leg. But what was about to transpire would see the fortunes of two of Chile’s tres grandes diverge in quite spectacular fashion.
