The date 17 of Colombian soccer ends this Tuesday with the matches Pereira vs. Medellín and Alianza Petrolera vs. Santa Fe, which will be decisive in the upper part of the table, as well as in the descent.
Both Medellín and Santa Fe need a victory this day that will bring them closer to qualifying for the league finals, which is getting tighter every time.

‘The powerful’ is ninth, 25 points, and he has two games left: at home with Alianza Petrolera and away from Once Caldas, which has improved in recent dates.
While the ‘cardinal’ is sixth, with 27 units, and should get a good result in Barrancabermeja, because later he plays the classic with Millonarios and closes as a visitor against La Equidad.
The situation is just as pressing for Pereira and Alianza at the bottom of the table. Especially for the ‘matecañas’, who fight inch by inch with Boyacá Chicó for not losing the category.

It should be remembered that in this first semester, after the regular phase, one team will go to B and two will go up to complete the 20 teams, since Cúcuta Deportivo was disenrolled.
Pereira is last in the relegation table, with 104 points, followed by Chicó, with 107. The team from Pereira is left with Envigado as a visitor and Deportivo Pasto at home.
Thus, we will have to be aware of what happens this Tuesday with two games of interest in the head and the tail of the table.
