Grêmio defends that there is no support in the return match of the quarter-finals of the Copa do Brasil. In the protocol for the public to return to the stadiums presented by the CBF and, according to President Romildo Bolzan, accepted by the clubs, the presence of fans in knockout games is prohibited if one of the squares does not have the authorization of the authorities, a situation in Porto Alegre on the date of first game.
Earlier, the president of the STJD did not set a date to analyze the joint request of the 17 Brazilian clubs. The full court will hear the case on September 23rd.
Noronha reports that the decision on the clubs’ injunction can be taken at any time. But, in case there is no contrary decision in time, the match on Wednesday, at Maracanã, is guaranteed with the presence of fans.
Flamengo got authorization from the STJD to play with the public, even against the wishes of the CBF and most clubs that compete in national competitions. With the release of the city hall of Rio, the club started selling tickets and will maintain its position.
Grêmio should play with a team without some holders on Wednesday, as they lost 4-0 in the Arena and practically threw in the towel in the competition.
