Campeonato Primera B 2013 Promotion Playoff Preview


The first match of the two-legged Primera B play-off final takes place on Wednesday with Universidad de Concepción hosting Curicó Unido at the Estadio Collao.

Both sides booked their places in the final after relatively comfortable victories in their respective semi-finals and both will be looking to continue their imperious league form into the final games of the season.

Having faced each other twice already in the regular south league season, Curicó will feel the more confident of the two sides after getting the better of Universidad de Concepción in their first meeting at the Estadio Collao.

The match was an extremely tight affair with a solitary Diego Churin goal being all that separated the two sides. Their second meeting was even tighter as neither side could find a breakthrough and the game finished 0-0.

Curicó also boast Argentinian forward Churin who, after goals in both semi-final legs, is now the second highest goal scorer in the Primera B and is in red-hot form having registered in four of his last five games.

However, Churin and Curicó will need to be at their attacking best to break down an Universidad de Concepción side who boast the best defensive record in the entire Primera B, having conceded just four league goals all season – six including the play-off semi-final against Coquimbo Unido.

Both teams have tasted Primera Division action, with Curicó spending their only season there in 2008 and Universidad de Concepción only being relegated last year, and both will be doing all they can to ensure a top flight return.
