Overcast weather free of rain made for a crowd turnout of 55500 at Estadio Metropolitano Roberto Melendez today. Dieter Faessler was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Charles François and Narcís Izmendi. Starters: Pisco - Blandón, Ñungo, Correa - Rolan, Mestizo, Castro, Villa, Cuartas - Gallego, Aponte.

Lineup: Tunjuelo - Ceballos, Val, Tinoco - Leguízamo, Bejarano, Urdampilleta, Doria, Sendoya - Ramírez, Sirimarco.

3-5-2 was the choice of the day for both coaches. The guests took the lead 11 minutes into the match, after a right-side attack resulted in Omar Roberto Sirimarco scoring to make it 0 - 1. Atlético's Rafael Aponte made a successful breakthrough on the left after 30 minutes and should have levelled the score, but instead he clipped it over the bar. 35 minutes into the game, D. Alavés worked the left side industriously creating several opportunities to add to their lead, but just couldn't apply the finishing touch. With 36 minutes having been played, Atlético scored to make it 1 - 1. A dribble down the left wing, followed by a shot which took a wicked bounce off a defender resulted in the keeper having no chance. Everyone thought it'd been an own goal, but Arnaldo Rolan was marked down as the scorer. After 41 minutes, Roberto Bejarano took a hard knock between his legs. He needed a long breather but was eventually able to continue the game. 1 - 1 was the score after the first half. D. Alavés had most of the ball, with 52 percent of possession.

With 49 minutes played, the home side managed to get a 2 - 1 lead as Diego Francisco Mestizo flipped the ball in after a cross from the right. Rafael Aponte shows no mercy as he runs straight at the D. Alavés playmaker, then stumbling through the ensuing mess with the ball and scoring for Atlético. That's 3-1 from the power forward, 59 minutes in! Coming in on the left, Óscar Alexis Ceballos did everything right to get a goal for D. Alavés after 60 minutes, but his finishing shot was stabbed clear by the keeper. The crowd roared its approval when Juan Sebastián Pisco somehow managed to block a shot which seemed to be a certain goal by D. Alavés's Jorge Enrique Sendoya 70 minutes into the game, following a good move through the middle. The visitors replied 71 minutes into the game, reducing the home side's lead to 3 - 2, as Omar Roberto Sirimarco dashed up the middle, easily lobbing the ball over the home team's keeper. After 75 minutes, Omar Roberto Sirimarco was massaging his right knee with a worried look on his face, but managed to get up in the end. The referee decided to let play continue for an additional 3 minutes beyond the regular 90 minutes. The match ends 3 - 2. D. Alavés enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 51 percent of possession.

Arnaldo Rolan performed admirably for Atlético. Nicolás Cuartas was a disappointment, however. Most important D. Alavés player was René Doria. However, Leonardo Javier Urdampilleta made a disastrous appearance.
