Blue team (Emelec) fans celebrated the goal of Cristian Nasuti, with which they defeated 1-0 the Catholic University team, just like the goals that achieved the victory of Deportivo Cuenca to defeat Liga de Quito in the Casa Blanca, scores that allowed the ‘Bombillo’ to win the first stage of the national championship, which qualified for the final soccer championship of Ecuador, and South American Libertadores Cup. A deserving prize for the best campaign of the team.
It is the fourth time in the last five seasons that the ‘millionaires’ reach as top leaders in the first half. In the previous three it was only a heavy front runner, but coach Gustavo Quinteros, is not satisfied and wants to win the second stage to be crowned as champion without having to dispute it.
In other results from the penultimate round, Barcelona won the Manta in the Jockay stadium 2-1, which only served as a preparation for the second stage, since it has no chance to win.
Deportivo Quito also got disqualified after losing to Quevedo 4-3, even though it was winning with a score of 1-3 in the stadium 7 de Octubre.
In Atahualpa stadium, El Nacional won 3-1 at Macara, and Independiente, which had to win to aspire for the lead, but it fell against Liga de Loja 2-0 in the Reina del Cisne.
