Unión Española take early season lead

Unión Española sits two points clear at the top of the table after two rounds after an impressive win over Cobresal whilst Universidad de Chile and Cobreloa both won their opening matches of the season.

Universidad de Concepción and Audax Italiano kicked off the second round on Friday night with a 1-1 draw, a result which leaves both teams without a win after two rounds after Cristián Canuhé’s 52nd minute goal for the visitors was cancelled out by Claudio Guerra’s 77th minute effort.

Saturday saw the big three in action with Colo Colo and Universidad de Chile both picking up their first wins for the year whilst Universidad Católica crashed to a shock 2-1 loss at the hands of Santiago Wanderers. For Colo Colo it was solitary goal from Rodrigo Millar that saw them triumph over O’Higgins whilst La U had Raul Ruidíaz, Junior Fernándes and Marcelo Díaz to thank for their 3-1 triumph over La Serena. The day’s other match saw Antofagasta and Iquique share the spoils in a 1-1 draw.

Sunday saw the remaining three matches take place with Unión Española’s 6-1, thrashing of Cobresal, which included a eight minute Sebastian Jaime hat-trick, proving to be the day’s if not the round’s greatest highlight. In the day’s other two matches Cobreloa picked up three points in their first match of the season with a 1-0 win over Unión La Calera whilst Rangers and Unión San Felipe had a 0-0 draw in the weekend’s last match.
