Fresh off their Copa Libertadores triumph it doesn’t get any easier for Universidad Católica as they take recent continental rivals Unión Española in the match to watch in the fifteenth round of the Apertura season. Sitting seven points clear at the top of the table, los cruzados can afford to drop points but would be loathed to do so against an Unión Española side that has been on a good run of form since its elimination from the aforementioned Copa Libertadores.
With the top four pretty much sewn up there are a number of key encounters as teams look to grab the four remaining spots. Of note is the last match of the round between Colo Colo and O’Higgins and Huachipato’s clash against Universidad de Chile whilst Unión La Calera will look to arrest their recent form slump as they travel north to take on a resurgent Iquique.
