Once Caldas reacted and in the 34th minute equalized the game with a goal from Juan David Pérez, who took advantage of a communication and coordination error between Ditta and Pacheco, to define with class before the loss of Sebastián Viera.
However, the joy did not last long for the visit, since, three minutes later, Daniel Rosero put the rojiblancos ahead after capturing a rebound in the area in a corner kick.
In the second half, a new error by Junior gave Once Caldas the tie in the Metropolitano. Didier Moreno recovered and misdelivered a ball back, which did not reach its destination, Sebastián Viera. The ball had a short journey and was left to Juan David Pérez, who defined freely, between the legs of the shark goalkeeper.
However, as if it were a copy of the first half, Junior hit again and seven minutes after Once Caldas’ goal, he again put the lead on the scoreboard. Fredy Hinestroza pushed a ball from the left side with his chest and scored the third goal of the night.
Hinestroza repeated the dose and in the 76th minute he scored the shark’s fourth goal to close the score. The midfielder took a left foot from the ground and beat Ortíz for the second time. First double for Fredy with Junior’s jersey.
