The final of the Copa Libertadores between Flamengo and Palmeiras in a single match at the Centenario Stadium in Uruguay, had an emotional moment. An hour before the game, a ‘Mengao’ fan asked his girlfriend, a ‘Verdao’ fan, to marry him.
The request was answered yes and both embraced, amid the applause and shouts of the fans of both teams, who left the rivalry for a moment to celebrate the happiness of the couple.
Palm trees vs. Flamengo: la previa
Without losing in this competition since May 18, Palmeiras will try to become the first team in 20 years to lift the cup in two consecutive seasons. The last to achieve that milestone was Argentina’s Boca Juniors in 2000 and 2001.
Meanwhile, Flamengo will try to win in the same scenario where 40 years ago they conquered the continent for the first time. It was in 1981 when the group at that time led by Paulo César Carpegiani beat the Chilean Cobreloa with two goals from Zico.
Steeped in history, both squads know that now is the time to write a new page. With two Liberators each, the possibility of putting a new glass in the showcases is more at hand than ever. For this, the coaches will bet on teams with figures on all lines.
