The Tricolor won the penalties and prevented the current champion of the Libertadores from adding more titles.
The team capable of stopping the unstoppable Flamengo is called Fluminense. It is that the Tricolor was the faces on Wednesday night with the reigning champion of the Copa Libertadores and, although he did not defeat him, he took the definition to penalties after 1-1 on the scoreboard and celebrated the title in the Carioca Championship.
Soccer had restarted in Brazil with this state competition in Rio de Janeiro and the group stage was completed until the best four were decided. In the semifinals, the Flu left Volta Redonda on the road and those of Jorge Jesus did the same against Botafogo, for which both were cited in the final series, a single match at the Maracanã stadium.
Defender Gilberto was responsible for overtaking Fluzao with his goal 37 minutes into the first half, while Pedro hit 13 minutes from time to put mystery in the final.
Already in penalties, Fluminense had three hits and two wrong shots, while only Gabriel Barbosa and Pedro managed to score; on the other hand, the decisions of Willian Arao, Leo Pereira and Rafinha prevented Mengao from adding a new crown.
Flamengo came on a streak in the last year, since he added to the titles in the Libertadores and the Brasilerao in 2019 those won in the South American Cup, the Brazilian Super Cup and the Guanabara Cup this year.
The Fla remains the maximum historical winner of the Carioca with 35 stars, followed by Fluminense with 32.
