The Maracanã consortium refused Vasco’s request to send the match against Chapecoense, on July 31, at the stadium. The response came from the duo Fla-Flu, who temporarily run the venue, this Tuesday. Cruz Maltino, in turn, threatened to take “appropriate measures”.
Despite this, Vasco will play the match against Xavi in São Januaro. The match will be the start of Alex Teixeira, who returns to the club after 12 years. This was, in fact, the reason why Vasco wanted to immediately take the confrontation.
The Fla-Flu duo used pitch justifications to reject Vasco’s request. The stadium was closed in recent days to repair the grass and will reopen on Wednesday (27) in front of Flamengo and Atletico for the Brazilian Cup.
They suggested other dates for Vasco. The biggest problem is that on any of the proposed dates, the club is the home team in the game. The situation caused a revolt among the residents of Vasco.
“This is the second time in a row that the stadium, a public asset of the state of Rio de Janeiro, has been deprived of club ownership. And last time, in front of Sport, Vasco had to go to justice against CR Flamengo, the stadium’s licensee, after being denied the use of General equipment which shall be open and available to all major clubs in Rio de Janeiro on equal terms. As expressed in CR Flamengo’s proposal to the state government, as well as the terms of reference for a contract of precarious use. This understanding has been ratified by two instances of TJ-RJ ” , says an excerpt from Vasco’s official statement.
Flamengo, in turn, understands that the court’s decision, which allowed Vasco to play against Cruzeiro on the field, was flawed and asked the judge, who gave a favorable opinion of Vasco residents. In this case, the red and black player tries to reverse the previous decision, even if the match has already taken place.
as I learned Goal, Flamengo’s idea is to leave as an end result, a decision that makes clear Vasco had no right and played him based on a provisional initial decision that was not final. Therefore, the club seeks to avoid creating a precedent and has the Cruz-Maltino right granted by the court to rent the stadium at will.
