A strong blow at the start of the championship. Millonarios tied with Deportivo Pasto, but the worst was the lack of football from the blue team. Although he tried to break lines with high pressure in the first half, Deportivo Pasto gained confidence and with the speed of his wingers he complicated the blue defense that seemed very slow.
The ambassador team again lacked ideas to break their rival’s defensive line. Once again a rival is planted with a low block in Bogotá to complicate Millonarios. Luis Carlos Ruiz was the highlight, but in the second half he disappeared.
Mackalister Silva and Daniel Ruiz only shone in the goal, then they had a discreet game, with many inaccuracies in the passes. Now, they will have to recover for the next home game against Bucaramanga.
