Two consecutive defeats in the Liga de Quito brought a secret to the team. The squad trained behind closed doors this Tuesday ahead of LigaPro’s match against Universidad Católica.
The U’s looked excited for a win in their extra game against Guayaquil City on the 5th. It was a sip of motivation to receive Bar’s undefeated and Barcelona in a match of other legends.
But it coincides with the onset of several days of tension. He lost at the Rodrigo Paz Stadium and the criticism has grown day by day since then. Barcelona’s 26-year unbeaten streak of not winning was broken, but the idols changed history on Saturday, April 15, 2023.
Last weekend on the 7th, the league lost again, this time against Orense in Machala. With the loss, they dropped to 6th with 10 points. They are six points behind leaders Independiente del Valle.
On Saturday 29th April we visit Catholic University, which is 14th with 7 points. A loss would further exacerbate the crisis for both teams.
A loss in the league will forfeit their chances of winning a stage and qualify for the final of the season and the 2024 Copa Libertadores, and a loss for Cattolica will also be disastrous as they are close to the relegation zone.
