America lost 0-2 to Nacional, a result that leaves the red club’s coach, Juan Carlos Osorio, in question. Already before the game some incidents were reported and press versions speak of the local team bus being stoned.
America’s fans exploded
When the game reached the 90th minute, fans from the south stand invaded the playing field and one of them was about to physically attack coach Osorio. Judge Andrés Rojas suspended the match.
When the appointment of Juan Carlos Osorio as technical director was announced, many thought that with his experience and international trajectory he would maintain the recent triumphs of the scarlet box.
But today, three months later, the fans don’t want to see him on the red bench anymore. It comes from defeat to defeat, passing through the South American Cup, Super League, Cup and Betplay League, and this Sunday the 0-2 suffered at the hands of Nacional, one of the team’s staunch rivals, hundreds of them invaded the Pascual Guerrero court from the South stand and forced the referee Andrés Rojas not to give the time of addition.

The players of both teams had to rush to the dressing rooms, but Osorio did it first, escorted by the police, while objects fell from the stands.
The Esmad had to deploy all its troops to prevent unfortunate events from happening.
The truth is that América de Cali still has mathematical options, if it wins the five remaining games, but even at home it has not been able to make a good campaign and it depends not only on its results, but on the fact that the clubs that precede it slip in your commitments.
The malaise in America
The fans of the scarlet team have been complaining about the management of coach Osorio, who arrived in the middle of the year and has a two-year contract.
The fans have exploded in their criticism after the poor results, the team’s way of playing and the recent defeat in the Super League against Santa Fe, when the coach also made offensive gestures towards the cardinal fans.
This Sunday, the atmosphere was tense in the stands from the beginning of the game, and it got worse with the team’s play and the result, with another painful defeat, now against another classic rival like Atlético Nacional.
Conditioned that he must earn everything he lacks. On date 16, America will visit Tolima on Thursday, October 28 (8:10 pm). Then will come Alianza Petrolera, Equidad, Pasto and Pereira.
