An unreal revival of Colo Cola, the most trophy-winning club in Chile. The team through which the Red Star climbed to the roof of the world in 1991, only a few months ago, fought frantically for survival. He won it in mid-February only in the playoffs, with a 1-0 victory over Concepcion. Now, seven months later, he is closest to winning the title, 33rd in its history.
Los Albos are currently first on the table after 20 rounds, with five points more than second-placed Universitad Catolica. The biggest threat to them, however, is the Universidad de Chile, their biggest rival and the second most trophy-winning Chilean club, with 18 titles. He will be the opponent of Kolo Kolo in the 21st round of the Primera, and the match at the Universidad Stadium is on the program on Sunday at 9.30 pm Central European Time.
Universidad is currently fifth on the table, with seven points less than Kolo Kola, but also with a match less. So, with three points and a victory in the 190th Superclassico of Chile, he would approach the leader only one point behind, which would bring us an extremely exciting finish of the championship.

The guests will have to play a great derby without two standard first team players in defense, the stopper Matthias of Zaldivia and right back Hayson Rojas. Both of them have been injured for about a month, and even without them, Kolo Kolo did not have too many problems in those five or six rounds. He lost to Cobresal (1: 0), drew with La Saler (1: 1), but won the other matches, concluding with a duel against Everton (2: 0) last weekend.
The tradition in Superclassics is thick on the Kolo Kola side. Out of 189 championships, 86 went to Albos, 55 ended in a draw, and only 48 matches were won by Universidad Chile. The last triumph was recorded in 2013 (3: 2), and since then they have met 16 times in the Primera and Kolo Kolo has won 11 times. In April this year, it was 1: 0, and the game UG0-2 came to the last three Superclassics.
