This weekend’s sees a clásico take place in the north of the country along with a number of matches that could go a long way to determining who finishes in the playoffs come the end of the regular season.
The resurgent Audax Italiano will be looking four wins in a row as they kick off the thirteenth round of the Apertura season against Unión San Felipe, who themselves have gone eight games without picking up three points.
Saturday sees second placed O’Higgins looking to bounce back from their last start loss as the host Palestino whilst Iquique, who are in third and three points behind the Rancaguans, will be looking to continue their run of four unbeaten matches against Unión La Calera. The match Santiago Wanderers and Unión Española should be a cracker whilst Huachipato will be looking to build on that win over O’Higgins when they take on Universidad de Concepción. The last match of the day sees Universidad Católica, who are now under the tutelage of Andrés Romero for the time being following the resignation of Mario Lepe, host La Serena in the Estadio San Carlos de Apoquimbo.
Sunday sees the clásico del cobre take place between Cobresal and Cobreloa and with both teams struggling at the wrong end of the table a win is a must for either team. In the other two matches Rangers host Colo Colo whilst Universidad de Chile bring the round to an end as they look to make nine wins in a row against Antofagasta.
