Xbox Division 1's 5th & 6th placed teams went head to head at the Atanasio Girardot with the out of sorts Colombians snatching the victory at the death!

A lively opening from the visitors saw them force Medellin into their own half, probing away with authority and forcing Tyton into a save after just 3 minutes. Come the 12th, Valencia got the goal their opening deserved, Afellay brushing aside 3 defenders with infuriating ease before firing it beyond the hapless Tyton. After the goal it was all Valencia as Medellin somehow made it into half time just the 1 goal down and with no efforts of their own registered against the opposition. 

Following a change in formation, Medellin were back with aplomb, Ravet receiving the ball out wide before unleashing a trademark Medellin cross that found Mamaev at the far post for the equaliser. With their tails up, Medellin went on the prowl, Ravet gathering one from over the top before forcing Vermeer into a save. Come the 62nd it was Valencia who had the chance to regain the lead, El Ghazi with almost too much time to think about his effort, narrowly placing it wide. 

With the game finishing end to end, it was the unlikely figure of Soldado who would come to the rescue at the death. Despite frustratingly being anywhere but near the oppositions area, the Spaniard collected the ball out wide before somehow finding Mamaev again at the far post for yet another header and the most fortunate of victories! 

Hard lines @Vondia, the harshest of defeats but the kind that see's the unlikeliest of figures get promoted to greatness!
