Barcelona: Gets Closer to its Fourteenth Title
Barcelona, Ecuadorian idol, has not achieved any championship since 1997, but is about to write a new page in the history of the club and national soccer, if they become champions without playing the finale, for that they have to win this next match.
Although achieving the title depends only on Barcelona, there is a possibility that an adverse outcome for Emelec (loss or tie) against Deportivo Quito, in the capital on Wednesday, could established the yellow team as champion that same day. Emelec, meanwhile, looks to win the stage championship, hopeful to get good results in their next matches and a slip up from Barcelona, to play the finale.
Yesterday, the ‘blue’ crew, who remains second in the scoreboard with 37 points, dashed the possibility of Barcelona to run the Olympic lap at the Bellavista Stadium in Ambato, when shortly, after the ending of Barcelona’s game, they scored the goal that gave them the victory against Tecnico Universitario by 2-1, at the Capwell Stadium.
