The game was filled with action all through and left plenty to talk about from a seven-goal thriller. 

Inter could not have asked for a better start when they opened the scoring in the first minute through Abel Hernandez 18 minutes later, they grabbed another through Boschilia and looked to be cruising in the game.

Despite a 3-1 lead, the second half proved to be a whole different story. The scenario changed: it seemed that everything was lostAmerica de Cali scored twice and brought the game back level but Boschilia scored late in the last minute and gave the victory to Eduardo Coudet’s team. Abel Hernández, twice, and Boschilia himself scored the other goals. VergaraRamos and Moreno took notes for Colombians. 

It was a crucial victory and Inter had to struggle it out until the very end to claim all three points.
