Is Peñarol's feat in Brazil possible?  In the last 20 years he played 14 times and won only three

People left with a Champion of the Century feeling of emptiness. He took a hit to his illusion. The defeat against Atlético Parananese, for the semifinals of the Copa Sudamericana, seriously compromised the classification. Peñarol must score two goals in Brazil. Is the feat possible? How long has it been since the chickadee turned a series in Brazilian territory?

The background numbers have innumerable readings. The old Aurinegro president, José Pedro Damiani, used to say: numbers don’t lie, they lie what numbers do.

What is the memory for? What if we measure it by The latest information, from 2019 to date, the charcoal burner went to Brazil four times and won two games: 1-0 against Flamengo in the 2019 Libertadores and 2-0 against Corinthians in the current edition of the Sudamericana.

Now, if we take into account the last 20 years, the numbers do not favor Peñarol who won only three of 14 games.

The three coal victories were against Inter (Libertadores 2011), Flamengo (Libertadores 2019) and Corinthians (Sudamericana 2021. To this is added a draw, the one achieved against Sao Caetano in the Libertadores in 2004.

This marks that, in the last 20 years, the Aurinegro team only won 23.8% of the points in dispute in Brazilian territory.
