 calamitous start for the Columbians, dawdling with the ball in defence and being stung for it after just 3 minutes. Such a start saw Medellin incapable of settling, with more poor defensive decisions seeing Kelechi stroll through to double the hosts lead after just 11 minutes.

Having finally regrouped, Medellin began to create space and one two'd the s**t out of the opposing fullback to release Pazzini, who reduced the deficit. With their tails up, a glorious goal line block from Cresswell via a Paloschi bullet header saw the visitors fail to equalise just before half time. 2nd half and the game lost any real momentum for either side as the scores remained the same.

Whilst it's a marginal improvement on their opening match, more work is required if the Colombians wish to pursue their promotion ambitions, which they will!
