Colombia Primera A Wrap: Atletico Nacional continue winning ways

22 November 2013 04:25

Atletico Nacional got their Colombian Primera A finals campaign off to a perfect start with a 3-2 home win over Itagui on Thursday.

It took until 24 minutes for Nacional to take the lead as former Aston Villa striker Juan Pablo Angel executed a deft chip of the outside of the boot over Itagui keeper Osvaldo Cabral into the top corner.

Nacional doubled their lead seven minutes later when Cabral charged out to impact the ball, only to allow Jhon Valoy an easy side-footed finish.

Itagui earned a lifeline in the early stages of the second-half after Yessi Mena calmly converted a spot-kick.

However, in the 61st minute the two-goal lead was restored when Cabral made a stunning save but the ball fell to Atletico's Wilder Guisao, who blasted it into the net.

The away side valiantly tried to fight their way back into the game and were rewarded when Ferney Rios bundled home a cross three minutes from time.

But Atletico held on to claim victory and begin the semi-final group stage with three points.

Also on Thursday, Luis Ruiz's 78th-minute penalty secured Junior's 3-2 win over Santa Fe, who fought back from 2-0 down through two second-half spot-kicks.

On Wednesday, Deportivo Pasto claimed a 2-1 win against Once Caldas despite playing 42 minutes with 10 men and Carlos Lizarazo scored the only goal as Deportivo Cali shaded Millonarios 1-0.
