The Portuguese coach has won the second consecutive title of the largest South American tournament.

The Portuguese flag has returned to the top spot in South American football for the third time in a row. Second time Abel Ferreira leads Palmeiras to yet another continental title. The tripartite championship (the first in 1999) won against Flamengo this Saturday in Montevideo definitely places the natural-born coach Penafiel in the gallery of the greatest accomplishments in Verdao’s history.

The double title, followed by the Portuguese, equals the feat of two giants of South American football: Tele Santana, champion of São Paulo in 1992 and 1993, and Carlos Bianchi of Boca Juniors in 2000 and 2001. E Supera Luis Felipe Scorali, former coach of the Portuguese national team who achieved continental success with Alviverde in 1999.

Like last year, when they beat Santos (1: 0), the final of the Brazilian teams was even emotional. After a 1-1 draw in regulation time, Palmeiras took extra time to defeat Flamengo, the champion team with Jorge Jesus in 2019.

Rafal Veiga opened the scoring in the 5th minute, and in the second half Gabigol left the same at the Centenario stadium in the 72nd minute. With a majority of the Red and Black fans in the legendary Uruguay arena, the title seemed to take Abel Ferreira even further.

However, in extra time, Verdao played more consistently. Stronger physically and emotionally. And he achieved the winning goal (and title) in the 95th minute with the player Abel released during the game: Daverson. After all, the party of Alviverde and the Portuguese in Uruguay.

Nuno Santos won a cross from behind the back of the entire defense and already in the penalty area struck from the bottom and crossed, and Morita appeared at the far post, correcting the trajectory of the ball and opening the scoring (16 minutes).

Shortly after, the Japanese reappeared, finding an imbalance in depth: class in unmarking, receiving and heeling for Pedro Goncalves, who even took the opponent out of the game before shooting into the goal (22 minutes).

Returning to the second half, the guests abandoned the top five in the rear and achieved more brilliance in attacking the opposite third. Murilo snapped at Adana before Fran Navarro returned to attack as the Spaniard added three more threats.

However, already on the other half of the field the ball was again in the depths of the gate. Esgaio start for Rochinha and this one to overcome Lucas Cunha and Andrew by scoring 3-0 (82′). In the farewell match (90+3′), Fran Navarro finally managed to celebrate with a header from Elder Santana.
