Grêmio and Flamengo will face each other in the semi-finals of the Copa do Brasil for the fourth time in history. But the tradition of both teams stands out. The two teams are the two teams with the most access at this stage of the competition, as each of them participated in 16 entries.
The Gauchos beat Bahia on penalties on Wednesday night and have advanced in the Copa do Brasil before. Rubro Negro again beat Atlético PR, this time away, by 2-0, and reached the same stage shortly afterwards.
Dates are not set yet, but it should happen around the end of July and the start of the next Stage Games. The order of the fieldmen will be decided by lottery.
Palmeiras could reach the tenth final this Thursday, when it faces Sao Paulo, who has a chance of being seventh. In the duel between Corinthians and América-MG, Timão can reach nine semi-finals, while América-MG was at this stage last year.

everlasting! Grêmio defeats Bahia on penalties and is in the CB half
Tricolor has five titles, second only to Cruzeiro, the most champion with six, and four other contested finals. The team from Rio has lifted the Brazil Cup four times, and has been in four other competition decisions.
The last time they met in a competition, Flamengo won. In 2021, the year of Grêmio’s relegation, they faced each other in the quarter-finals. In the first leg, Renato Portaluppi’s Robro Negro won 2-0 at the Maracanã, which is coached by Filipao. On the way back, he won again, 4-0, in the Arena.
If the recent retrospective was more in favor of the cariocas, Grêmio did better in the semifinals. The three times they met at this point, the tricolor had passed each of them.
