BANC8192CD Olimpia defeated Millonarios FC by a score of 2-1 at Sun Life Stadium in front of a crowd that was out to celebrate at the Colombian Independence Festival.

The game was at a stalemate with back and forth action until CD Olimpia took the lead on a free kick from Douglas Caetano Mattoso in the 34th minute, putting them up 1-0.  Olimpia carried the 1-0 lead going into halftime.

Millonarios evened the score just six minutes into the second half with a goal by Dayro Moreno, but that was not enough as Jairo Puerto Herrera netted the eventual game winner in the 76th minute with a beautiful diving header for Olimpia.

During halftime, the fans were treated to an entertaining “bubble soccer” match, between teams representing Real Madrid and Chelsea.  Soccer players were suited in large inflated bubbles as they faced off in a five on five soccer match.
