Flamengo and a date with history. Brazil’s most popular team is one of the world’s largest fans and is returning to a Copa Libertadores final after 38 years. In 1981, the Rio de Janeiro team won the title by defeating Cobreloa from Chile, led by Zico. That year he also won the world title, beating Liverpool.

After that, a huge drought and some lost international finals have Mengão with the losing team poster. That is the great challenge that Jorge Jesús and his followers have, being the group of South America with the largest economic budget.

The current team is a set that pays homage to the beautiful game. His style not only deposited him again in a final of Libertadores, but also fell in love with a fan with millions of fans in Rio de Janeiro and throughout Brazil.
