With a new goal from the striker Pedro, Flamengo achieved its first victory in the Copa Libertadores 2024 by defeating Chilean Palestino 2-0 this Wednesday (10) , at Maracanã, in Rio de Janeiro, for the second round of Group E. Flamengo provisionally leads its group with four points while waiting for the game between Bolívar (who has 3 points) and Millonarios (who has 1) this Thursday ( 11) in La Paz. 

Just like Mais Querido, the other two Brazilian teams that played in the continental competition won their respective ties: Atlético-MG and São Paulo. Galo took the lead in Group G of the Libertadores after beating Rosario Central (ARG) 2-1, this Wednesday, in Belo Horizonte.


Sao Paulo suffered, but scored twice at the end and beat Cobresal (CHI) 2-0, also this Wednesday. The Libertadores Group B game was held at Morumbi. With little creativity, Tricolor had difficulty breaking through the Chilean defense. André Silva, at 81, opened the scoring, and Calleri, at 87, scored the second. São Paulo reaches three points in Group B, the same score as Talleres. Cobresal remains with just one point.

It's worth it Also remember that, at the beginning of this round, this Tuesday (09), Fluminense and Grêmio also played. The Rio Grande do Sul tricolor ended up losing 2-0 to Huachipato (CHI), in Porto Alegre, while, at Maracanã, Fluminense beat Colo-Colo (CHI).

Among Brazilians, Botafogo and Palmeiras are still playing today (11). Alviverde faces Liverpool de Montevideo (URU), at 9 pm (Brasília time), in São Paulo. Botafogo is in Ecuador to face LDU at 7pm (Brasília time).

Flamengo fans had two reasons to celebrate this Sunday (23). In addition to the 1-0 victory against Fluminense, the club received the news that the Gasologista land will be expropriated by the City of Rio de Janeiro. There, Rubro-Negro intends to build its own stadium. Cacau Cotta, Flamengo's director of external relations, detailed the next steps for the construction of the arena.

Cacau Cotta explained that the expropriation of the land now places the property under the responsibility of the city hall, and that the club has the resources necessary to acquire part of the land: "The land now belongs to the city hall. There is no legal dispute (...) What could arise in the future is a negotiation about the values...".




NEGOTIATION DETAILS

— "People sometimes get confused, because the mayor's decree is a decree that transfers the ownership of the land to the city hall. An expropriation does not imply a legal dispute. What may arise in the future is a negotiation of values. Soon, in 20, 30 days, there will be an auction, Flamengo has the necessary resources, and will pay for it. land the fair value, just as the city hall paid for the Gentileza Terminal. Flamengo will make the payment, so rest assured, there is no legal dispute. What could happen is just a discussion about land values", stated Cacau Cotta.



HISTORICAL MOMENT FOR THE CLUB

Cacau Cotta also celebrated the historic moment for Flamengo: "Let's celebrate, because today is a day of celebration with this beautiful victory. A difficult game against Fluminense is always a complicated game and (the stadium) represents a milestone in Flamengo's history. We've waited 130 years for this moment, haven't we? To finally have land to build our own stadium. Now it's President Landim's turn to explain, I gave you the details, for the mayor to explain, for (deputy) Pedro Paulo, who is by our side in this fight. That's what I always say, it's the red-black bench working in favor of Flamengo."
OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT OF EXPROPRIATION

This Sunday morning (23), the mayor of Rio de Janeiro, Eduardo Paes, and deputy Pedro Paulo recorded a video announcing the expropriation of the Gasometer land. The space belongs to an investment fund from Caixa Econômica Federal. Flamengo and the municipality tried to negotiate with the bank, but received no response, leading the City Hall to order the expropriation.

In a classic valid for the 11th round of the Brasileirão, Flamengo beat Fluminense 1-0 this Sunday afternoon (23), at Maracanã. The goal that guaranteed the victory was scored by Pedro, from a penalty, keeping Mengão in the isolated lead of the competition with 24 points.

The match was marked by a controversial move in the 40th minute of the second half. Bruno Henrique was brought down in the area by Calegari, resulting in a penalty that Pedro converted, shooting into the middle of the goal and guaranteeing the red-black victory. The decision generated many complaints from Fluminense, who considered the marking incorrect.




TITE PRAISES FLAMENGO'S PERFORMANCE

< After the game, coach Tite praised the team's performance, highlighting the superiority and fairness of the result. “They are two great teams. It's one of the best Libertadores campaigns. I have great gratitude for Paulo Angioni (Fluminense football director). We are not enemies. There is respect for our work. We deserve to win. We quickly regained the ball on the outside to leave the team compact. It was gratifying. We deserved it regardless of when we scored the goal", said Tite.

RUBRO-BLACK SUPERIORITY AND MISSINGS

< Even with physical problems and absences due to the Copa América, Flamengo proved to be superior to Fluminense. Although they had less possession of the ball, Rubro-Negro was more dangerous, forcing the opponent to make mistakes and creating clear opportunities. Lack of aim almost complicated the situation, but the penalty conceded by Bruno Henrique was decisive.
SITUATION IN BRASILEIRÃO

< With the victory, Flamengo reached 24 points and guaranteed the leadership of Serie A for another round. Fluminense, who only had one shot in the classic and none in the goal saved by Rossi, remains at the bottom of the competition.< /p>

After the end of the 10th round of the Brasileirão, João Guilherme sees two favorites for the title. Taking into account the results of Palmeiras and Flamengo, the announcer has no doubt that the rivals are the strongest teams in the championship. While Verdão thrashed Atlético-MG, away from home, the Rio team, full of absences, drew against Athletico, at the Ligga Arena.

Even though Palmeiras and Flamengo are at the highest level, João Guilherme considers that there is a threat nearby. This is because Botafogo, current leader of the Brasileirão, is seen as a club capable of overcoming the most powerful clubs in national football.


“This round left a very clear message: Flamengo and Palmeiras gave a great demonstration strength. Palmeiras beat a direct candidate for the title, Atlético-MG, which has one of the best squads in Brazil. Flamengo drew with Athletico, at the Ligga Arena, with 10 absences. Palmeiras and Flamengo are still the most competitive teams to beat in Brazilian football.”, said João Guilherme, live on YouTube.


“Botafogo is doing very well. It's a team that can go head to head with Palmeiras and Flamengo.”, he added.

Afterwards, João Guilherme highlighted the main strengths of Palmeiras and Flamengo. On the side of the current two-time Brazilian champion, the work of Abel Ferreira, who also has absences, was praised. Meanwhile, Rubro-Negro's extraordinary squad gained space in the discourse.


“Palmeiras is a tough nut to crack. It's annoying for the opponent. Abel loses players, adds others and maintains his competitive style. It's a sick team. Flamengo was without an entire team. Did you see the team he put on the field? Tite is taking control of the situation. Can you imagine Flamengo when the 10 guys from abroad return?”, he said.
