With the match goalless at half-time, Nacional took control of the game in the second half when Jhon Valoy scored in the 56th minute.

It took until the 81st minute to make it two as Oscar Murillo found the net and the flurry of goals came soon after with Elkin Calle and Sherman Cardenas both scoring in the final six minutes.
