River Plate runs into Flamengo fans

Copa Libertadores - River Plate set to deal with unexpected setback ahead of final match

November 20, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
The defending champions have set foot in Perú three days before the match and a bit earlier than their opponents.

River Plate will have to deal with one more setback prior to the clash that will see Los Millonarios trying to defend their Copa Libertadores title against Flamengo this Saturday.

The Argentine team made its way to Peru this Wednesday, but even if they beat Flamengo as the first team to arrive into the host country, they were not able to beat some Flamengo fans. Furthermore, they will have to deal with the presence of their supporters in their own hotel.

Around twenty Brazilian supporters found a way to register into Swissotel, the place where River will be staying until the game is played, and even managed to get a flag of their team inside the venue, with the help of a local bar owner that wants the Brazilian side to win.

"Hi, River Plate, welcome to Lima! Los Millonarios' squad is already in Peru to play the title match of the Copa Libertadores."

One of Flamengo's supporters admitted that even if they were trying to get inside the heads of River Plate's players, their presence in the hotel had a deeper meaning.

"We are not trying to provoke them, it's a matter of faith. We respect River Plate, but this is our moment. We've been waiting for this match for over 38 years," one of Flamengo's supporters told Diario Olé.

In fact, the Brazilian "torcedor" dropped a hint on Saturday final'S score.

"Bruno Henrique and Gabigol will score, 2-0 and off we go to celebrate," the fan concluded.
