This Sunday Deportes Tolima will face Millonarios at the Manuel Murillo Toro Stadium at 6:05 pm, for the third day of the home run phase of the BetPlay League.

Millionaires have a game lost and one won, the first was against América, which today will face Alianza Petrolera, at the Metropolitan Stadium in Barranquilla, where the score was 2-1; and the previous one that was against the Barrancabermeja team in which the result was 3-0. With these two results, the ambassador team is second with three points, the same as the scarlet box, but with two goals in favor.

For this duel, Alberto Gamero’s team will not have David Mackalister Silva due to the accumulation of yellow cards. Faced with this, there is the possibility of putting Daniel Ruíz in the center and leaving Jader Valencia or youth player Andrés Gómez on the left wing.

In the case of Tolima, in this quadrangular phase they are undefeated, as they won 4-1 against Alianza Petrolera and 2-0 against América de Cali. With this, the current champion of the local tournament is at the head of group B with 6 points and 5 goals in favor.

It should be noted that the most recent match took place, like this one, in Ibagué, on matchday 18 of all against all. That day the local won 3-2, after winning 3-0 at halftime. On the one hand, Albornoz, Angulo and Mosquera scored; and on the other, Uribe and Quiñones did it.

Now, so far this year, these two teams have met constantly, since to date there are four and at the end of the home runs everything will end in six, with a balance of two victories for Tolima and two draws. In the final matches of the BetPlay League in June, Tolima was the winner and won its third star.

Millonarios has not beat Hernán Torres’ team since February 22, 2017, match that took place in El Campín, which ended 3-0 with a double by Harold Santiago Mosquera and one more by Ayron del Valle.

Through the league they have met 214 times between posh and ambassadors. This history has left 104 victories for Millonarios with 357 goals, 46 victories for Deportes Tolima with 214 goals, and has remained in a draw 64 times.
