O’Higgins and La U share lead

O’Higgins and Universidad de Chile share top spot after six rounds as both teams continued their recent winning form whilst Cobreloa dropped to third as they shared the points with La Serena. Round six also saw Audax Italiano pick up their first win of the season which leaves Cobresal as the only winless team in the competition.

Universidad Católica continued their recent habit of drawing one game and then winning the next as they defeated Rangers 2-0 in the opening match of the round. Los cruzados had Mátias Mier and Nicolas Castillo to thank for the win, which saw them move into fourth position on the table on eleven points.

In Saturday’s first match, Unión Española made it two wins from two clásico de colonias after they defeated Palestino in the Estadio La Cisterna with the win ending a run of three games without a win for los hispanos. In the day’s second match Audax Italiano picked up its first win of the season as they came away with a 2-1 win at Iquique. Audax’s win left Cobresal as the only team without a win after they went 3-1 to Universidad de Chile, a win which saw los azules maintain their second position on the table. Ahead of La U is O’Higgins who grabbed all three points against Universidad de Concepción with a 3-1 away win courtesy of goals to Guillermo Suárez, Diego González and Rodrigo Rojas. In the day’s other match Huachipato bounced back from their last up defeat with a 2-1 win away to Unión San Felipe.

Sunday saw two nil all draws as both Colo Colo and Santiago Wanderers and Unión La Calera and Antofagasta all failed to trouble the scorer. Cobreloa and La Serena also shared the points in the day’s other match in a two all draw.
