During the break, the captain of Verdão gave an interview and spoke about being naughty against the team from Palmeiras and lack of respect.
– That 100% follows the protocol. It messes with our head, it’s not a normal game, we didn’t come in to play a normal game. Unfortunately, you have to review concepts in Brazil – said Felipe Melo.
Palmeiras always defended the realization of the match and kept all their schedule of preparation for the confrontation. Flamengo asked for the game to be postponed due to an outbreak of Covid-19 in their squad and delayed their arrival at Allianz Parque this Sunday.
