Rio – Flamengo and Atletico MG will play on Saturday (30), at 7 pm, in the Maracana, one of the main duels in this edition of Brazil. In addition to the battle on the turf, the two Houses were also locked in a backstage dispute over tickets. During the week, the management of Club Robro Negra made it difficult for Minas fans to be present, and before the confrontation, Atletico fans were seen buying tickets for the Rio de Janeiro club sector.
After Flamengo prevented visitors from attending, the Tunisian Press Syndicate released the ticket sales to club fans from Minas Gerais. Despite this, according to the portal “Urubu Interativo”, many Atlético-MG fans were prevented from continuing their journey towards Rio de Janeiro and were prevented by the military police in the city of Teresópolis, in the mountainous region of Rio de Janeiro.
However, some Galo fans took the adventure and were caught buying tickets to the section reserved for Flamengo fans. The expectation of thousands of fans for the Brasileirão leader was great.
Atlético-MG, who saw the difficulty of their supporters’ presence at the Maracana on Saturday, published an official statement criticizing Flamengo’s stance and categorizing it as unsportsmanlike behaviour. Prior to the duel, the Robro Negra Council, in a statement, rejected the competitor’s allegations, and stated that it was concerned with security issues at the stadium.
