Flamengo overwhelms the Millionarios and guarantees a place in the knockout phase of the Libertadores

The 3-0 triumph over Millonarios in a packed Maraca guaranteed Fla second place in Group E. It was the team’s 100th victory in the tournament

There were no upsets and, in a packed Maracanã, Flamengo beat Millonarios 3-0 this Tuesday 28th, in the last round of Group E of the Libertadores. Far superior to a struggling rival who failed too much in defense, Rubro-Negro scored three goals in the first half, with Pedro (two) and Vargas, against. In the final phase he had some chances to increase, but he managed to exploit the advantage. This was Flamengo’s 100th victory in the Libertadores. And Gabigol, on the bench, did not enter.

Flamengo ends the group stage in 2nd place in G, with ten points. We are therefore waiting for the draw to find out who will face the first place in the round of 16. The leader was Bolívar, who finished with 13 points. Palestine came third. They will thus go to the repechage of the round of 16 of the South American Championship. However, Millonarios, last with three points, are out of continental competition this season.

Millonarios falters and Flamengo scores the goal

The match had just started and Millonarios, with five defenders and two defensive midfielders, gave Flamengo the breakthrough after six minutes. Moreover, midfielder Giraldo, from midfield and without marking, inexplicably decided to delay goalkeeper Montero. In the middle of the area there was Pedro, who touched, eliminating the archer and playing into an empty net.

There was only Flamengo and the second was a matter of time. It came at the 26. Defender David Luiz made a great move to the right and rolled towards Gerson. The fan crosses, but Vargas, attempting to cut, blocks. The Colombians did nothing and made life easier for the locals. In the 44th minute, Viña, who came on shortly before in place of the injured Ayrton Lucas, steals a ball and serves Pedro, who scores. The referee rules offside, but VAR confirms the legal goal: 3-0.

Flamengo manages the lead

Before the first minute of the second half, Pedro almost scored his third goal of the match, with a beautiful shot, but it went past goalkeeper Montero. In the 23rd minute, Pedro, very involved in the game, once again forces Montero to make a great save. As time passed, Rubro-Negro let time pass. Only Bruno Henrique is bad. He came on in the 35th minute of the final phase and, five minutes later, committed a foul on Paredes from behind. He took the red correctly. End of the match and, finally, the place in the round of 16 is assured for Fla.
