After the comfortable 2-0 victory of Universidad Católica against Gremio in San Carlos de Apoquindo for the Copa Libertadores, one of the authors of the goals, Argentine striker Fernando Zampedri, acknowledged that they were happy and that they are on the right track.
In the corresponding duel for the third date of group E of the Copa Libertadores, the UC managed to beat Gremio 2-0 in a match that on paper seemed complex, but that on the field reflected the power of the Chilean cast that finally got his first victory in the competition.
After the victory, Argentine striker Fernando Zampedri, who scored the first goal of the game at the end of the first half, acknowledged that “it is a very difficult group, we know that we are growing, because we played a great game. By this way we will achieve great things.
In addition, he referred to the bad cup start with defeats against Inter de Porto Alegre and América de Cali. « We didn’t get off to a good start in the Cup. I think we’re on another path today, we show it. We are very happy, « said the trans-Andean.
With this result, UC continues in last place in group E, yes, with great options to advance to the next round or at least qualify for the Copa Sudamericana, as it has three points, as does the Colombian cast, although with fewer goals scored.
On the next date, the « crusaders » will have to go to Colombia to face América de Cali on Wednesday, September 23, with the idea of rescuing valuable points that will allow them to breathe calmly in their desire to advance to the round of 16.
