The action came at the end of the game, which the visiting team won 0-1 thanks to an agonizing goal from K.Evin Lopez. It all happened in the 90s when Orellana saw a red card after arriving from ahead of Germán Mejia and Carlos Pineda.
For this action, the referee sent off (directly on the red) Andre Orellana.

The referee did not hesitate to show red cardboard directly and a few hours later Orellana issued a public apology to his rivals:
My behavior was unacceptable and I take full responsibility for my actions. I committed an unjustified violation against two teammates whom I respect and consider friends and football brothers. So I want to make it clear that this has nothing to do with personal issues. “I was carried away by the tension of the match, but this does not justify my behavior at all.”
Remarkable Andre Orellana is a football player belonging to Olimpia; however leased from Marathon to add more minutes and experience.
