Fla is optimistic about a match in the quarterfinals of the Libertadores with an audience at Maracanã

Last Wednesday (21), Flamengo beat Defensa y Justicia by 4-1 and qualified for the quarterfinals of the Libertadores. The opponent in the next phase is Olimpia (Paraguay), and Rubro-Negro has the advantage of deciding at home. Mais Querido is optimistic about playing at Maracanã and with the presence of the public.

For now, only Conmebol has authorized the fans to return to the stands and in accordance with the sanitary protocols of the match venue. Rio de Janeiro, for example, has not yet released and, not by chance, Flamengo chose to play the round of 16 in Brasília to receive support from fans.


However, with the second duel of the quarter-finals scheduled for August 19, Rubro-Negro expects the release of the City of Rio to have the presence of the public against Olimpia. Both parties are talking to align sanitary protocols so that the idea gets off the ground. However, in case there is no authorization, Brasília becomes again an option, as well as João Pessoa.

It is worth mentioning that, last week, Flamengo presented a protocol requesting the presence of 20% of the total capacity of Maracanã. However, as the red-black board considered the experience of cheering at Mané Garrincha as good, they decided to present a new document this Friday (23) and, this time, asking for 30% of the audience at the stadium.

Therefore, Flamengo is waiting for a definition from the City of Rio de Janeiro to follow the planning of the continental competition. As said, Rubro-Negro is optimistic that the next step is to dispute the classification playing at home and with the presence of the Rubro-Negra Nation.

First-hand game: Olimpia x Flamengo – 12/08 – Manuel Ferreira Stadium (Paraguay)
Return game: Flamengo x Olimpia – 19/08 – Maracanã (Brazil)
