Flamengo won 1-0 with a goal by Bruno Henrique.

It is not new that any competition or modality in which Flamengo is involved generates repercussions and audiences, last Thursday (06) it was not different. The closed channel ESPN was the only one to broadcast the Mais Querido match, the broadcaster recorded 13 points in the Ibope average, it was the third highest ever recorded in the history of ESPN.

This Wednesday (22), Flamengo faces Amazonas, for the second game of the third phase of the Copa do Brasil. The match hasn't even taken place yet, but it is already involved in controversy, as the home club was notified by Procon and Consumer Protection for the abusive price of tickets. Roberto Peggy, CEO of Amazonas, tried to justify what happened.

“It's for the moral issue of you not allowing your stadium to be taken over by fans of the visiting team and you have the embarrassment of being booed inside your stadium. own home, because the opposing crowd is bigger. That's why we allocated 10% of the stadium to Flamengo fans only and we want people from Amazonas to come and watch the game”, he said, in an interview with 'Jornal O Globo'.


The fact is that the “moral issue ” mentioned by him generated tickets with prices ranging between R$150 and R$1,500 to watch the confrontation. And precisely the exorbitant values ​​caught the attention of authorities that regulate consumer abuse.


At the time the prices were announced, the Consumer Protection Commission of the Legislative Assembly of Amazonas, through President Mário César Filho, defined the practice as “unacceptable”.

“It is unacceptable that fans are exploited with exorbitant prices that violate the principles of democratic access to sport. We cannot tolerate the practice of abuses that harm consumers and disregard current legislation. We are vigilant and will ensure that citizens' rights are strictly protected”, said Mário.


In addition to using the “moral” part of the confrontation to justify the high value of tickets, the CEO of Amazonas states that The strategy is to ensure that Toca da Onça fans not only watch the show, but also start contributing to the club's daily life through the membership plan. The point is that, with the stance adopted, the only thing Roberto has achieved, so far, are complaints and notifications.

“We hope that the fan will be able to join the partner or, if he just wants to participate in a show and doesn't want to commit to the club, he pays a slightly higher price to see Flamengo, which is a fair price, since Flamengo hasn't been to the state for 50 years. The stadium may be empty, but it must be empty of Flamengo fans and Amazonians are the majority”, said Peggy.

Flamengo in Manaus 2024

Regardless of restriction of 10% of the stadium to red and black fans, which is actually law in Brazilian football, it is true that Manaus will stop to follow Flamengo, whether inside the Arena da Amazônia, or outside it. The team arrived in the state under a high flow of fans and a lot of expectations.

Another factor worth highlighting is that this year Fla went to Manaus, when they faced Audax, in the Carioca Championship. On that occasion, more than 44 thousand people were present at the Arena da Amazônia, and the match had revenue of R$6,574,690.00, with tickets between R$150 and R$600. In other words, even the CEO's own argument about 'Flamengo hasn't been to the state for 50 years' fell apart.

With controversies off the field, but an expectation of a calm game without complaints within the four lines, Flamengo and Amazonas face each other this Wednesday (22). The ball will roll at 9:30 pm (Brasília time).

Flamengo has the advantage on the scoreboard as they won the first match 1-0, at Maracanã. The match is worth a place in the round of 16 of the Copa do Brasil, whose opponent will be defined by draw – no date has yet been defined by the CBF.

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.
