Millonarios will play against Atletico Nacional later, and the feeling is all over for the fans. Millonarios FC introduced MFC FanZone, and some fans are currently there and warming up the environment before the match starts.
The stadium is sold out. Jorge Luis Pinto’s words to the media before the match seem to show that this is no ordinary game against our die-hard rival.
Millonarios is the leader of the league, not only because it has accumulated the most points but also their style of playing that allows the team to control the game no matter if it is home or away. Ball possession, the organization in defense and the midfield, strong attacks through the flanks, and undetectable movements by Ovelar in the box and out of the box makes this team difficult to deal with for the rivals.
Statistics show the encounter of two different styles. Autori’s team is tight in defense and is the team that has conceded fewer goals in the league. On the other hand, Millonarios is the second best scoring team and has the best goal difference. In this 2019 league, the Ambassadors have been able to score in all of the matches except one.
Millonarios will try to end the streak of three years without beating Atletico Nacional in the league, and the away team will seek a victory that allows them to enter the playoff zone.
The table is set for an afternoon of great football and emotions at El Campín.
Wuilker Fariñez; Jair Palacios, Matias de los Santos, Luis Payares, Felipe Banguero; Jhon Duque (C), Cesar Carrillo; Santiago Montoya, David Silva; Roberto Ovelar, Juan David Perez
