Once the match had finished, with Melgar picking up the victory, U de Chile's goalkeeper was named #BestOfTheMatch: "We leave unhappy because we played brilliantly, especially in the second half. We had lots of chances and we didn't take them. There's still 90 minutes to go, in our home with a full stadium, and we hope to turn it around."
"Here, with this altitude and their supporters, it makes them stronger. We matched them but we lacked that cutting edge in the final third. A draw would have been a fairer result," he concluded.
