Flamengo is now 100% Libertadores. After fulfilling the schedule for the Brasileirão, Renato Gaúcho’s men are already in Uruguay and this afternoon began the preparation for the clash against Palmeiras, scheduled for Saturday (27), at 17:00 (GMT). Check out everything that stirred the day of the Gávea team below.
After the 2-2 draw against Grêmio, by Brasileirão, Flamengo’s delegation headed to Uruguay this morning, and has already worked in the neighboring country in preparation for the duel against Palmeiras. The agility in the logistics of arriving at the stage of the decision was a request from coach Renato Gaúcho. The commander of Fla made the request aiming at a better environment and also focusing on the recovery of athletes who need to regain the ideal game conditioning, such as Pedro, Arrascaeta and Bruno Henrique.
Despite living a better time than Palmeiras in terms of numbers and sequence, Flamengo does not appear as the favorite for the Copa Libertadores title, at least that is what the mystic world indicates. The newspaper “O Dia” heard two specialists in the area: the numerologist and astrologer Helenyce Bueno and the tarologist Mística Rodrigues, and both believed that the title is closer to Palmeiras.
Triggered in the second half of the game against Grêmio, Uruguay midfielder De Arrascaeta gained pace to be available to coach Renato Gaúcho for the match against Palmeiras in the final of the Copa Libertadores. This Wednesday morning (24), the player sent a message on social networks, and stirred up the red-black fans.
“In pursuit of our dreams”, wrote the midfielder. In the publication, several fans asked the Uruguayan and the other players to “ignore” coach Renato Gaúcho’s requests.
A possible casualty involving right-back Isla could impact a novelty at Flamengo for the Copa Libertadores final. At the post-match press conference against Grêmio, coach Renato Gaúcho signaled that the Chilean player complained of a discomfort in his leg. In this scenario, the young Matheuzinho appears as a possible surprise factor against the São Paulo team. The athlete was even preserved against Immortal, already aiming at the decision of the continental tournament.
In the post-match live at UOL Esporte, commentator Renato Maurício Prado criticized Portaluppi’s behavior in the duel against Grêmio, his former team where he is an idol. At a given moment of the match, the commander of Fla was seen talking to the lateral Cortez.
“I can’t be sure, but I thought it was weird. I think that scene of him with Cortez [lateral esquerdo do Grêmio] unacceptable. It doesn’t matter who was his player. It’s not time to talk. At that time, he was the coach of the opposing team. You don’t have to sit around with your hand over your mouth”, criticized the commentator.
Saturday, at 3:30 pm, there’s Palmeiras x Flamengo on SBT, it’s the grand final of the Libertadores 2021. Watch it on TV or www.sbt.com.br/aovivo #GrandFinalnoSBT.
