Everton Chile take on national giants Colo Colo in the final of the Chilean Cup this evening (Wednesday 14th October).Everton’s only previous final was in 1984 when they beat Universidad Católica 3-0 in front thousands of travelling fans in the National Stadium.

A similar invasion of the capital, Santiago, is expected tonight with the Ruleteros looking for their first trophy since winning the league title in 2008. A curtain raiser for the final took place in the league game in Santiago on 4th December, with Colo Colo running out 4-2 winners in a very close fought match. This brought Everton’s 12 games unbeaten run to an end, but will result in the return of the traditional blue and gold shirts which were abandoned by the Club in the hope of keeping the run going with the new away shirt.

Whether they win or not tomorrow, Everton will be taking part in continental football next year. If they win they will be in the Libertadores Cup (Champions League equivalent), if they lose, it will be the Copa Sudamericana (Europa League equivalent).

Kick off is at 11pm (UK time).
