Flamengo won the match against Palestino (CHI) for Copa Libertadores of America last Wednesday (10) and approached a historic record in the competition. If Mais Querido wins the next two matches of the continental tournament, it will become the club with the best winning percentage in the history of the competition.

According to statistics, with 98 wins in 172 games, Rubro -Negro has a 56.97% success rate in the competition, which currently places him with the second highest success rate in the entire history of the Libertadores. The current record is held by Cruzeiro, with 57.22%, which is not competing in the most important tournament in America this year.


Third place is Palmeiras, which currently has a 56.17% success rate. It is worth noting that the numbers consider clubs with more than one participation in the competition. In this sense, Mengão actually has one of the lowest percentages of defeats in the Libertadores.


The Red- Negro lost 22.09% of the games, behind Bahia (21.4%), Tigres-MEX (20.58%) and León-MEX (20%), who played, respectively, three, four and twice the Liberators. In other words, with 20 participations, Flamengo can be considered as the team with the lowest average number of defeats in the continental tournament.

Mais Querido has several important records in the competition, which demonstrate its enormous tradition in the Copa Libertadores. Flamengo holds the title for the largest home audience in a single edition, having registered a total of 516,382 spectators in the six games it played at Maracanã in 1981, when it became champion for the first time in its history.


Another record is having the best performance in a single edition of Libertadores. The incident occurred in 2022, when Rubro-Negro became three-time champion of America under the command of Dorival Júnior and had a 94.87% success rate, with 13 games, 12 victorias and only a draw. It is also worth mentioning that Flamengo scored goals in all of the last 30 matches played in the Libertadores, with the sequence starting on July 14, 2021 and continuing until last Wednesday's clash (10), against Palestino.< /p>

Corinthians tries to leave administrative chaos you are in. To this end, according to information from the GE portal, it decided to hire executive Fred Luz, who worked at Flamengo between 2013 and 2018. The professional will be the “Chief Executive Officer (CEO)” of the São Paulo club. The announcement was made informally by Corinthians president, Augusto Melo, this Friday (21). 

Corinthians is going through a huge administrative crisis at the beginning of President Augusto Melo's administration. According to journalist Rodrigo Vessoni, from Meu Timão, around 18 directors have already left the club since the beginning of the year. The most recent departures were Rozallah Santoro, financial director, and Fernando Alba, assistant director of football.


The crisis exploded after the unilateral termination of the contract by Corinthians' master sponsor. The betting house Vai de Bet decided to interrupt its relationship with the São Paulo club after allegations of corruption in contract negotiations. Interestingly, the agreement between the black and white team and Vai de Bet triggered a clause between Flamengo and its master sponsor, Pixbet, which guaranteed that Rubro-Negro would not receive less than any national rival.

Now 70 years old, Fred Luz arrived at Flamengo in 2013, at the beginning of President Eduardo Bandeira de Mello's administration. The executive first assumed the role of marketing director, but later became CEO. At Flamengo, he is appointed as responsible for improving rights and TV agreements and structuring the fan-partner program.


Still at Flamengo, he hired foreign consultants to help with base management and prevention of injuries. In 2018, Fred Luz left Rubro-Negro to dedicate himself to the presidential campaign of João Amoedo, from the Novo party. Bruno Spindel, current executive director of football, took over as CEO at that time.
