Independiente Santa Fe and Deportivo Cali will face this Saturday, at 6 pm, at the El Campin stadium, in a duel in which the 'cardinal' team has the difficult challenge of maintaining their nine-game streak without losing at home to defend the first place of Group B, of the home runs of the League II-2019. The red box only has a point of advantage over the green, which is motivated after winning the classic against America.
Coach Harold Rivera has been dosing the minutes of play between his players, who have shown signs of exhaustion, especially in recent meetings against the Oil Alliance.
The only casualty that the red team will have will be that of midfielder Sebastian Salazar, who accumulated five yellow cards in the meeting last Wednesday, in which Santa Fe drew 1-1 with Alianza Petrolera, in Barrancabermeja.
Veteran midfielder Andres Perez, who was a substitute in Barrancabermeja, would return to the starting lineup instead of Salazar.
The red box trained on Friday behind closed doors at the headquarters of the Colombian Football Federation, where coach Rivera gave his team the final touches for this Saturday.
Santa Fe: Leandro Castellanos; Carlos Arboleda, Fainer Torijano, Nicolas Hernandez, Edwin Herrera; Andres Perez, Daniel Giraldo, Maicol Balanta, John Velasquez, Fabian Sambueza; Jefferson Duke
