Geimer Balanta, striker for Chicó, the team that leads the BetPlay League table after date nine.
This Monday, March 20, the ninth day of the BetPlay 2023-I League closed with the match between Huila and Once Caldas. Despite the fact that Dayro Moreno opened the scoring in favor of the blanco-blanco, the opitas quickly tied through Gustavo Britos, who would be the star of the match.
The expulsion of Jáider Riquett in the 50th minute was a hard blow for the visitors, because after a few minutes it was Brito who scored again and turned the score around.
Previously at the Alfonso López stadium, Atlético Bucaramanga drew 1-1 with Deportes Tolima with scores by Gonzalo Lencina for the leopards, and a goal from the penalty spot by Yeison Guzmán in favor of the pijaos.
