Flamengo defeats Olimpia in the Libertadores
How did the game go
The battle had already begun to heat up, and as the timer moved forward, the ânimos continued to grow. Allan was immediately red-faced for a tardy entrance, a carrinho, in the second minute of play, and he gave the game’s tone.
Obwohl the Fla had complete control over the situation, it struggled to get past the Olimpia’s defensive arsenal. Completely retreating, the Paraguayan team did everything it took to stop the Rubro-Negro’s momentum and leave the arbitrage under pressure.
The visitors essentially gave up the attack, but they still had the best chance from the opening phase. González made the save on the Olimpia’s first and only significant opportunity, which nearly resulted in a victory in the closing seconds after the flamenguista attack was neutralised.
After the break, the team of Gabigol and Bruno Henrique worked well and came to an end. The camisa 10 assisted the companion in marking with his head and relieving pressure on the home team, who were more at ease and continued looking to expand the placard.

Along with the advantage, Flamengo played 11 games of ingenuity and was able to quell the uproar caused by Pedro’s case. The players honoured the team’s coach, Jorge Sampaoli, in the celebration of the goal after he had been retained in his position after his personal friend and former physical trainer had ripped off the number 9.
Gol and highlights
Bruno Henrique advanced to the left at the 38-yard mark and was fouled close to the Olympic area. Everton Ribeiro collected for the half-time period, where Gabigol appeared and finished first, but the ball was deflected.
Defending the Olympic custodian
Wesley noticed a flash of writing at the 43-second mark and yanked Gerson to the right, who bucked hard with his cane. The ball continued to deviate from the path, but Espanola managed to stabilise and spread her wings for escanteio.
At 45′, Fernández took possession of the ball in midair, and Ortiz sprinted towards the little area. González showed up at Cunha’s clothing line, jumped first in instinct, but grabbed the rope.
At 3′ of the second half, Gabigol received outside the area, lifted his head, and walked towards it. Bruno Henrique alone ascended and descended to open the plaque.
Pênalti order request
At the 5′ mark, Ortiz dived long and the ball exploded towards David Luiz’s direction. The Olimpia players kept requesting a touch to the shoulder, and the VAR was activated. However, it did not recommend a review of the play, and the referee maintained the escanteio marking.
Nearly one second
At the 21-second mark, Everton Ribeiro commanded a chuveirinho on a fresh failed cobrança. David Luiz backed off and tried to be strong, but he saw the Olympic custodian flailing around again.
Arrascaeta moved forward with ease and sent a pass to Bruno Henrique at the marker’s feet. O shirt 27 batted positioned with capricho but ended up being sent outside.
At 34′, Quintana received near the goal line on the right and made a cross that forced Cunha to throw the ball, which was still hitting the crossbar. The Paraguayans then threw a ball into the Fla area, which Torres controlled and emitted a first-chance touchdown that balanced the network to the outside.
