In light of the upcoming of the upcoming superclásico I thought it would be an opportune time to do something that I have wanted to do for a while now and that it is to delve into some Chilean football history. This time we will take a look at the 1981 clash between the two Chilean giants in what was a Copa Libertadores qualifer.
Considered by many to be one of their sweetest victories over their arch rivals, a last minute Arturo Salah goal saw La “U” win 2-1 to advance to the continental championship that year. Unfortunately for Universidad de Chile they failed to progress from their group in that year’s tournament after picking up only six points in their six group games. All the goals and some reminiscing from the players can be found it the two clips (in Spanish) below.
