Palmeiras won the Libertadores Cup. In the final of the most famous club competition in South America, the Sao Paulo team beat Flamengo 2: 1. The meeting will be remembered due to the strange behavior of one of the players.
Palmeiras defended the championship. A year ago, Ferdao defeated Santos in the decisive match. Rafael Vega opened the result of this year’s final. The midfielder hit the net in the ninth minute.
Flamengo have been trying to equalize for a long time. This match was successful in the 72nd minute, when Gabriel “Gabigol Barbosa” entered the list of shooters. There was a draw after 90 minutes, so both teams went into overtime.
Her hero was Deverson. The striker appeared on the field in the 91st minute. Soon, he took advantage of the mistake of the Flamengo defender, took the ball and scored a goal, as it turned out later, the importance of winning.
The unusual scenes occurred towards the end of overtime. Daverson was struck by lightning after a judge slapped him in the back. The striker definitely wanted to “steal” some time for his team. Palmeiras managed to advance by one goal until the final whistle.
