TNT Sports had announced the presence of Imperador on the channel’s commentator team a few days earlier on its social networks. “You’re not reading this wrong! Adriano Imperador is another star that will participate in the final of the UEFA Champions League straight from Istanbul alongside the TNT Sports team! Very welcome, my Emperor!”, read the caption.

During the broadcast, the channel’s presenters stated that Adriano was not next to them on the bench “for personal reasons”. The final match was even more expected by Brazilians due to the show by Anitta, who made a presentation of less than three minutes before the ball rolled.
