Flamengo's rival in the third phase of the Copa do Brasil, Amazonas FC was responsible for the great “zebra” of the fourth round of Series B. This Saturday (11), the team achieved a 1-0 victory over Santos, at Arena da Amazônia, first triumph in the team's history in the second division and which also marked the end of the opponent's unbeaten run.

The goal of the game was scored by striker Ênio in a beautiful play in the 18th minute of the first stage. He took advantage just after the midfield line, headed towards the area with the ball under control and hit a strong finish from outside the area to score. The ball hit the crossbar and stopped inside goalkeeper João Paulo's goal, who practically didn't react to the attacker's powerful shot.


The victory would already be history as it was the first for Amazonas FC, founded in 2019, in history of Série B, but it was certainly even more special because it was against Santos. The rival had 100% success and is a big favorite for the title. No wonder the 17. 672 present at Arenas da Amazônia had a big party and the game ended with shouts of “olé”.


Amazonas x Santos also marked the return of experienced striker Jô. He was arrested in São Paulo, last week, while the team was on the way to face Ponte Preta. The athlete was arrested for non-payment of child support, slept in jail, and was released last Tuesday (7) after payment.

Flamengo has an advantage against Amazonas in the Copa do Brasil

The match that will decide the qualification for the round of 16 of the Copa do Brasil takes place on May 22nd, Wednesday, at 9:30 pm, at Arena da Amazônia. After a 1-0 victory at Maracanã, Mengão has the advantage of a draw to guarantee a place in the next phase. Furthermore, defeat by a minimum score leads to a penalty shootout.


The first match was marked by poor football from Flamengo and difficulty in overcoming the defense set up by coach Adilson Batista. However, the need for Amazonas to attack if they want to qualify tends to create more spaces for the red-black team on the field. The favoritism is clear for Rubro-Negro.

But Amazonas and Flamengo have commitments before facing each other. Mais Querido has a decisive duel with Bolívar this Wednesday (15th), in the Libertadores, and then a classic with Vasco on Sunday (18th). Amazonas faces Ceará and Paysandu on the same days, both in Series B.

German champions for the first time in history and two games away from completing an entire season without suffering a single defeat, Bayer Leverkusen has become the sensation of European football despite having a salary bill similar to that of Flamengo.

According to "Capology", a website that is a reference in financial matters in international football, Atalanta's opponent in the Europa League final, today, from 4pm (Brasília time), spends 63.4 million euros (R $352.3 million) per season with player remuneration.

The value is very similar to the cost of the Flamengo squad. Last year, the richest club in Brazil used R$339 million of its budget to pay salaries. In 2024, the tendency is for this cost to rise at least a little.


Poor... for Europe

With the salary bill at the same level as of a Brazilian team, Leverkusen spends much less on the football department than clubs that were surpassed on the field by them throughout the season.

Bayern Munich, owner of a hegemony of 11 years in the Bundesliga until being beaten by Xabi Alonso's men, paying 273.4 million euros per year (R$ 1.5 billion) and salaries. The expenditure of Borussia Dortmund, Germany's representative in the Champions League decision, is around 121.3 million euros (R$ 673.3 million).


In addition to them, RB Leipzig also has a more expensive squad than the "aspirin team": 87.8 million euros (R$ 487.3 million). In other words, Leverkusen, which has already made history due to its performance in the current season, is only the fourth most expensive team in Germany.

Most expensive players

< According to "Capology", Spanish left-back Alejandro Grimaldo and Czech center forward Patrik Schick are Leverkusen's two highest-paid players. The salary of each of them (6 million euros per season, or R$33.3 million) exceeds that of any Flamengo athlete. Making history

Leverkusen's unbeaten run has now lasted 51 matches and is the longest in the history of European football.

The German team lost for the last time in their farewell to the last edition of the German Bundesliga (3-0 to Bochum, on May 27th). Afterwards, they accumulated 42 wins and had nine draws.

To complete an entire unbeaten season, Leverkusen only needs to "survive" two more games: the Europa League final and the German Cup final, against Kaiserslautern, from the second division, on Saturday.

If they don't lose any of these games (not even on penalties), Leverkusen will also close 2023/24 with three titles, as they were crowned German champions in the middle April, with five advance rounds.
