Flamengo finds itself at a decisive moment and full of expectations for the 2024 season, starting its journey in the Copa Libertadores this Tuesday (02), facing Millonarios (COL) in Bogotá, at the El Campín stadium. This clash marks the beginning of a series of challenges that the team will face in the South American competition, where they will also face Bolívar (BOL) and Palestino (CHI) in Group E​​.

In addition to focusing on the Libertadores and the second game in the final of the Rio championship, Flamengo has its eyes focused on the future, specifically on the 2025 Club World Cup. Zico, the club's biggest idol, expressed his vision for this preparation, highlighting Flamengo's current strength and credibility in the transfer market.

He suggests that the club should aim high, stating: “Flamengo is very strong at the moment and has a lot of credibility in the (transfer) market. , enough, in my opinion, to go out and try to sign one of the biggest names in world football, especially knowing that he will be in this tournament.” Zico emphasizes the importance of adding a “big name” to the squad, believing that this can significantly improve Flamengo's chances against European teams.


With its classification for Club World Cup 2025 already guaranteed, thanks to winning the Libertadores 2022, Flamengo faces the challenge of preparing for a tournament that promises to be highly competitive, with a new format of 32 teams divided into eight groups . The presence of a world-class player in the squad is seen by Zico as an important differentiator for Flamengo's success in this competition.


In this period of expectation and planning, Zico's words resonate with a sense of optimism and ambition. He concludes his vision for Flamengo's future with the following reflection: “As it already has a strong squad, it would be good to go after a big name, someone who is a level above. The more you strengthen the team, the better the results will be. Therefore, it makes sense to focus all efforts on strengthening the team enough to be able to face a European team.” This focus on strengthening the squad reflects Flamengo's desire to not only compete, but stand out on the international stage, especially as the 2025 Club World Cup approaches.


Flamengo's debut in the Libertadores against Millonarios is not only the start of their campaign in the competition, but also a test of the club's greater ambitions. The match, scheduled to start at 7pm (Brasília time), will be an important moment for Flamengo to demonstrate that it has the best squad in South America.

Flamengo faces Palmeiras this Sunday (21), at 4pm (Brasília time) at Allianz Parque, with the possibility of, for the first time in points, achieving three victories in the first three rounds of the Brasileirão. If the team led by Tite maintains 100% success in the direct confrontation for the title, they will repeat what Zico, Júnior and company did in 1982.

That was the last time that Rubro-Negro had a start only with victories in the history of the championship. That historic team, which had just won the Club World Cup and the 1981 Libertadores, beat São Paulo (3-2) and Treze (5-0), at home, and Náutico (3-4), away.

The campaign 42 years ago achieved 100% success after six games in Group C of the Brasileirão. In the end, the second national title would come, in a season with knockout games.


Flamengo's sequence of three consecutive victories at the start of the championship only happened twice, also with players from the historic generation of 81, who were already part of the group, such as Zico, Júnior, Leandro, Adílio, Andrade and Tita.


In 1979, Rubro-Negro beat XV de Piracicaba (3 to 0) and Náutico (2 to 0), in Rio, and Gama (1 to 2) in Brasília. And in 1978, Fluminense, at Maracanã, and Fast Club and Remo, away from home, were the victims, all 1-0. Those teams would still win a fourth match.

Now, the team led by Arrascaeta, Bruno Henrique and Pedro can repeat the feat. After beating Atlético-GO in the debut, 2-1, and São Paulo by the same score, the mission is not the easiest against a direct opponent for the Brasileirão title and which has a great rivalry like in recent years.
