There is no doubt that the match between Cobreloa ante Santiago Wanderers by First B he was marked by the ghost goalwhich judge Patricio Blanca validated and allowed the 1-1 draw at the Zorros del Desierto stadium, in Calama.
Although the two teams were in need of points, although with different scenarios, neither knew how to take advantage, in a game that was marked by the equality of David Escalante.
A Cobreloa who was looking everywhere and a brave Santiago Wanderers, who is changing his image after the arrival of Miguel Ponce as coach.
Of course, it was the visit that opened the account in Calama, which was quite a surprise. It was in the 34th minute when Jefferson Castillo hit the goal with a free kick.
The goalkeeper from Loín, Matías Cano, tried to pocket the ball, but the ball came loose, leaving a rebound, which was used by Thomas Amilivia to celebrate the first goal of the night for the Valparaíso team.
Despite the bucket of cold water in Calama, the hugs for the locals came in the discounts of the first half, with the most controversial move of the week.
A play full of rebounds, until Jorge Espejo managed to get a low cross to find David Escalante. The attacker tried to define as it was in the small area, where the ball hit the horizontal, then the post, to bounce and go out.
All the Cobreloa players celebrated, which, helped by assistant Cristian Espíndola, validated the goal, which, as could be seen on the TNT Sports broadcast, never crossed the line.
After this, Wanderers somewhat blurred, given the greater danger plays for Cobreloa, who, injected with a win at home, continued looking for Fernando Hurtado’s goal.
Something that would not happen, despite the insistence, where they had to close the score with 1-1 equality, although this game will continue to be discussed throughout the week with the controversy of the ghost goal.
