Flamengo just delivered a massive victory to their home fans. The last match-day, the team was hosting Athletico, and as expected, took the lead in the first half itself. But what followed in the next set of 45 minutes was pure pandemonium.
Within the span of seven minutes, the guests fired two goals to put them ahead and held on to the scoreline till the 90th minute.
Then came the onslaught by the hosts. The team put on waves after waves of attack and leveled the score in the 90th minute. Not being satisfied with a draw, they kept on, and put another one on the board in the 97th minute, to break the visitors’ hearts.
Fortaleza had to be done with a modest draw at home the last day, but nonetheless, the equalizer came right at the end.
