Jackson Machado Pinto, Health Secretary of Belo Horizonte, revealed that the confrontation between Atlético-MG and Palmeiras on September 28 must have fans in Mineirão. It will be the return match of the 2021 Copa Libertadores de America semifinals.
“It is very likely that we have good news, yes, for the next Libertadores match against Atlético and, why not say, for the other matches of Cruzeiro and maybe of América, if they decide to have an audience”, said the professional.
Facing River Plate for the quarterfinals, the Athletic fans did not respect the protocols against the new coronavirus. There was crowding and few people wore a mask, which greatly irritated the mayor of Belo Horizonte. Cruzeiro faced Confiança for the Series B of Brasileirão, also with the presence of their fans.
