Both teams from the same city (Santiago).
Palestino had a tough battle in Libertadores where they defended ratehr well but couldn't proceed and they had games in Copa De Chile as well which brings quite a lot of fatigue to their players. They never cared about local championship but managed to get a good amount of points and once again without motivation today. As I previously said, they are a young squad so missing of experienced strikers Chavez and Ramos makes matters even worse.
Unin Espanola lost the game against Huachipato in the dying minutes in a game in which they left agood impression and created a lot in attack. Mathematically they still have chances to get in play off zone and from what i read they will be with almost best squad here.
Recent clashes between these teams have been quite tight, now in Clausra Union shwoed really good defence and imo tis should be a 50/50 match.
