The halftime ended with three goals down, but they were lucky because the away team later scored two goals after additional time, which was in the 90th minute and 91st minute.
However, aside from their last winning, we expect the same team that faced Club Leon to get into the last for their last two matches.
They would help the team push for six points to make them finally secure the top 12 and get ready for the second tournament. It will be an exciting match as both teams are ready for another battle for the tie.
