Colo Colo and Universidad Catolica will meet in the Chilean Clausura championship final after they brushed aside their rivals on Wednesday.

Midfielder Rodrigo Toloza scored twice as Catolica beat Santiago Morning 5-3 at home in the second leg of their semi-final for a crushing 8-3 aggregate victory.

Colombian Macnelly Torres, linked with a move to Santos of Brazil, was also on target twice as Colo Colo beat La Serena 3-0 away to go through 4-0 on aggregate.

Chile's finals and relegation play-offs had been temporarily suspended after Rangers took to the courts to dispute their automatic relegation, which had come after they were docked three points for playing one too many foreigners under the Clausura's 6+5 rule. The case was dropped when FIFA threatened to ban Chile's FA, which could have jeopardised their World Cup spot.

The final will be played over two legs on Saturday and Tuesday.
