Flamengo wins Ceará and postpones Atlético-MG’s Brazilian title party

In the first game after the defeat in the Copa Libertadores final, Flamengo beat Ceará this Tuesday (30) by 2-1, at Maracanã. The result postponed the Atlético-MG party, which had a chance to confirm the title of the Brazilian Championship if the Cariocas left the field without a victory.

With the triumph, rubro-negro reached 70 points, eight less than the athletics. Flamengo still has three games to play in the competition. Athletic, four.

To be champion, the team from Gávea will have to beat Sport, Santos and Atlético-GO and hope that Atlético-MG does not score more than one point in total against Bahia, Red Bull Bragantino and Grêmio.

Remember that the squad led by Cuca is unbeaten for seven games, with six wins and one draw.

On the other hand, Flamengo will have in the final rounds of Nacional the command of the interim Maurício Souza. The assistant took over the team after the resignation of Renato Gaúcho, who could not resist losing to Palmeiras in the final of the continental tournament, on Saturday (27), by 2-1, in overtime.

The pressure on the captain was already great since the elimination in the semifinal of the Copa do Brasil, in a duel with Athletico, not to mention the fact that he left the team with remote chances of winning the Nacional.

In the reunion with the fans after the loss of the continental title, Flamengo won thanks to goals from Gabigol and Matheuzinho. Rick cashed for Ceará.
