Copa Libertadores Final Flamengo vs. Palmeiras: preview, times, TV and how to watch online
Flamengo and titleholders Palmeiras will battle it out in Uruguay's iconic Centenario stadium in Montevideo.
Palmeiras and Flamengo meet this Saturday for what will be the fifth Copa Libertadores final that will see two teams from the same country battle it out. The Sao Paulo side will try to be the first to win the Copa back to back since Boca Juniors did it 20 years ago.
In retrospect, El Centenario is home to Flamengo's first-ever Copa Libertadores win back in 1981. The team was led back then by Brazilian legend Zico. This time around, the team will rely on Gabriel Barbosa, Gabigol to spear the team to triumph.
Both teams have only won the tournament twice, and whoever wins this time around will join an elite club of only ten teams that have won the Copa Libertadores more than twice; São Paulo, Santos, and Grêmio from Brazil.
Flamengo won the South America Copa Libertadores in 2019 before Palmeiras got their hands on the trophy, thanks to Breno Lopes' 99th-minute winner last year. This will be the first final with the previous two winners of the competition back to back.
