La equidad merits against the "Greats of the FPC," which is in liga's semifinals
The big surprise in the BetPlay Dimayor League Quarterfinals was how La Equidad was able to knock out Atlético Nac with a 3-2 aggregate series in order to enter the Tolima knockout round, where they will meet with either Deportes Tolima or Deportivo Cali to battle for the finals.
The insurance company scored at a level of 34 on the reclassification scale, placing it fourth in the competition. Under the new manager Alexis Garcia's leadership, this squad has accomplished more than any other team in the league, so far, and has even bested, in the course of the current year, the so-called "super" teams from Colombia, one to the others.
"Atletico Nacional," "Junior," and "Deportes Santa Fe" advanced to the local phase of the Copa with a 1-0 win over the other three teams.
As a guest, the América squad was only able to draw with Medellín and Medín beat them 1-0 at the away match in Pascua, Cagayan. Deportivo Cali and Santa Fe lost to those who are led by Alexis.
Although El Cerro brought home a 1-0 and a 0-0 win over Atlético Nacional in the semifinals, La Equidad won 2-1 in the quarterfinals. Though Tolima's squad is still in the running for the title, the only prior instance in the tournament was a win by a single goal in a match against Deportes in the semifinals.
