Colombia: Copa Mustang Favorites

On the eve of the second half of the national Colombian championship the team to have the highest chances is country's champion Atletico Nacional, although it did not show too much of activity during pre-tempotrada. Deportivo Cali has serious chances too after having reinforced with such strong players as Oscar Cordoba, Edgar Zapata, Sebastian Hernandez, Oscar Cornejo and an excellent forward Fredy Montero. What weakens the team are Alvaro Dominguez who has left and Sergio Herrera, who has got injured. Deportivo Cucuta may hope to prolong its bright campaign too, but only if the club's finances permit to compensate the absence of key players Blas Perez and Ruben Bustos. Those to have very high ambitions are Bucaramanga who declared its desire to win the Cup soon, and Barranquilla, that has been lead since recently by a coaching tandem of Luis Grau and Carlos Valderrama. The experts admit that Boyaca Chico and vice-champion Huila can generate some surprises too. The rest of the teams, as expected, are to keep on playing on the same level.
