Copa Mustang II Preview: Millonarios vs. América
Millonarios (4pts.) v América (0 Pts.) 16:30 local, Sunday 13th August, 2006 Estadio El Campín, Bogota
Two of Colombia’s historic squads face their most trying times. Like any other situation in the football world, it will have to be settled on the field. The loser of this match will not only lose ground from the other teams at the top of the standings, but their coaches will either get the sack or resign. No one would have ever though that two teams that have shown so little, would have their seasons defined in a match so early on, and that is what this match at El Campín is all about.
Millonarios president Juan Carlos López mentioned in El Tiempo that is Miguel Prince did not win this match, that he would “lose his job”. That is not the healthiest of situations to have coming in to such an important match. Millionarios is without a doubt the most disappointing squad in the Copa Mustang II. Their performance is not a reflection of the type of players club brass brought in to end their 18-year title drought.
Former Boca Juniors youth player Gastón Sangoy will make his debut with Millonarios. He last played for Universitario (Peru) prior to making his move north.
Bernardo Redín, in the meantime is winless in three matches since he took over for Hernán Darío Herrera. He has already talked about the possibility of resigning if he were to lose in Bogota.
Millonarios look to snap a three-year winless streak at El Campín against the Devils. The visitors look raw for the picking as they are the worst team so far in the tournament, while Millonarios are on a two-match unbeaten streak at home.

Millonarios: José Cuadrado; Gustavo Rojas, Luis Asprilla, Diego Bonilla, Gerardo Bedoya; Jorge Banguero, Juan Carlos Quintero, Ricardo Ciciliano, Hugo Morales, Gastón Sangoy, Orlando Ballesteros
América: Julian Viáfara, Darío Bustos, Carlos Valdés, Juan Carlos Quiñónez, Alexis Angulo; Edwin Valencia, Marco Canchila, Pablo Galdames, Pablo Armero, Víctor Danilo Pacheco; Yovanny Arrechea
PLAYERS TO WATCH:
Millonarios: Hugo Morales- Former Nacional playmaker needs to return to form and show that his low form is just a fluke. He could break through in this match based on the fact that América has a very suspect defense leaving a great deal of space for him to wreak havoc.
América: Yovanny Arrechea- A young forward like this could spell disaster for a slow and veteran defense like Millos. He will be their number one, two, and three option on the attack. If the Escarlata are to have any inkling of success they have to run this player to the ground.
Did I mention that this was a must-win for both teams? When two teams are stuggling and they need to get a specific result, they rarely ever get it. Prince’s job is pretty much over in Bogota, and Redín will coach his swansong.
Millonarios 1-1 América
