Palestinian won this Wednesday a deserved 2-0 victory at home against Sports Iquique, in commitment corresponding to date 11 of National Championship 2020.

In a first half completely dominated by the host team, the first clear goal arrival was in the head of César Cortés, who at 15 ’caused a great intervention by Sebastián Pérez.

Shortly after, Sebastián Zúñiga hit Agustín Farías in the face, leaving him bleeding from a cut. However, the Iquiqueño only received yellow cardboard.

At 34 minutes, Guillermo Soto won for his band and took a cross that Renato Tarifeño connected in an uncomfortable way, which prevented the opening of the account.

In the restart of the actions, the ‘carrot’ Pérez saved the northern goal again, after slapping a header from Henry Sanhueza that could be the first goal of the match.

The ‘Arabs’ managed to take advantage of 58 minutes through Jonathan Benitez, who took advantage of a pass from Leandro Benegas to beat Pérez with a powerful left-footed shot and leave things 1-0.

After this a lukewarm reaction was generated from the ‘celestial dragons’ to achieve the tie, but with few ideas in the ‘tetracolor’ area to disturb the goal Cristián Guerra.

For the same reason, it was not surprising that Ivo Basay’s team stretched the lead, after a tremendous shot from Cesar Cortes (86 ′) which meant the final 2-0.

With this victory, Palestino climbed to fifth place in the table with 19 points, in the qualifying zone for the South American Cup 2021. For its part, Deportes Iquique remains in 14th position with 11 units.
