The second-leg match of La Liga Postobon Final 2013 between Atletico Nacional vs Independiente Santa Fe will take place on Wednesday July 17, 2013 (5:30 PM Pacific) at El Campin in Colombia’s capital Bogota. After an intense first game that ended in a scoreless draw, Nacional and Santa Fe will battle out the final 90 minutes for the Colombian championship. Santa Fe walked away happy from Medellin with a draw and will now play in front of their home fans to try and earn their second title in as many years.

The first leg match of the finals showed that both teams have what it takes to win the championship. Both teams attacked with confidence and some incredible goal keeping kept the game scoreless in the first match. If the second match is anything like the first one we should be in for a great show between Nacional and Santa Fe. The 1st game featured some great outside shots, great goalkeeping, misses by inches, intensity on both sides of the ball, great individual defending, and passion by both clubs.

The atmosphere in El Campin will undoubtedly be in Santa Fe’s favor when these teams face off on Wednesday. Santa Fe who are in search of their eight championship will once again look for Wilder Medina on the offensive side of the ball. Medina is the type of player who can change the game and after leaving last game scoreless we know that he will be hungry for a goal in front of Santa Fe’s fans for one last time. On the other hand Nacional will look for their leader, Macnelly Torres, to find his teammates and make some plays that end up placing the ball on the back of the net.

Atletico Nacional vs Independiente Santa Fe Final 2013 (Second Leg) Prediction

Don’t expect the final match between these two clubs to end in a scoreless draw again. Both teams showed their potential on the offensive side of the ball last game and I’m expecting to see various goals this game. My prediction is that the final score will be 2-2.  At the end I believe it will be Atletico Nacional that comes back home with their 12th championship after a penalty shoot out. Look for Jefferson Duque from Nacional to make a stronger impact in this game.
