Bad news for Colombian soccer in the Copa CONMEBOL Sudamericana. Deportes Tolima did not enforce his home and drew 1-1 against Talleres de Córdoba on the second date of the group stage of the continental championship.
The Red and Gold Wine was very committed in its desire to qualify for the next round, since so far it has 1 point out of 6 possible, and in the group only one team qualifies for the round of 16 of the tournament. In this way, the squad that is shaping up to advance is Emelec, who has 6 units and is the leader of zone G.
The Pijao team had a difficult start to the game due to the conditions of the pitch, which suffered from the heavy rain that fell in the city of Ibagué. In this context, the Argentine club took advantage and went up on the scoreboard in the 43rd minute of the first half.
For the second half it stopped raining, a situation that Tolima took advantage of to begin to take control of the commitment and produce plays in attack with the intention of finding a tie. In this way, he found parity in the 56th minute with a great goal from Jaminton Leandro Campaz.
From that moment on, the match turned into a dizzying round trip that either team could take advantage of and keep the three points. However, none of them managed to score and ended up equalizing at Murillo Toro.
The team of coach Hernán Torres had a very clear goal opportunity in the last 20 minutes of the match, but the protagonist of the action, forward Gustavo Ramírez finished off with his left leg from the center of the area and his shot went wide.
With the tie Tolima is last in group G with one point. The next date will face Emelec at home on Wednesday, May 5.
