After both the first leg (1–1) and second leg (2–2) finished in draws, the play-off went to penalties, where Barnechea lost 7–6.

The club had a final chance at promotion in the Relegation Play-off against the 16th-placed team of the Chilean Primera División, Cobresal. Barnechea won the first leg 3–1 at the Estadio Santa Laura with goals from Ignacio Caroca and Francisco Ibañez adding to an Eduardo Farías own goal. Agustín Vuletich scored for Cobresal.
