The two most in-form teams in Division 1 came head to head at the Atanasio Girardot with the Columbians coming out on top in the narrowest of matches.

In a game more noted for both sides sturdy defences, it was the away side who chanced their arm first, with Mounier firing one just over from distance. The hosts were no different, the lack of pace up front forcing them to take their shots early, with Pazzini forcing Langerak into the game's first save after 24 minutes. Another effort from the Italian just 10 minutes later saw the keeper parry the effort wide with the scores remaining 0-0 going into half time.

2nd half and both managers fancied their chances of nicking it, Adrien creating enough space on the edge of the box to force Howard into a save whilst Rojas spurned the game's best chance as Langerak thwarted the close range effort. With the game heading for a draw, it was the familiar Italian duo up top who would have the final say as Paloschi played a 1-2 with Pazzini to break into the box and put away the winner.
