After the victory against Vasco da Gama (1-0), in the second leg of the Campeonato Carioca semi-finals, Flamengo secured a place in the title decision. After the match, Paulo Sousa made no secret of his ambition to bring the fourth consecutive trophy to Ninho do Urubu.
“The big goal is the tetra. We managed to win without conceding a goal and we are working on it. In this game we strategically tried to lower the block and look for transitions and the plan ended up working as expected. We won, we didn’t concede any goals and we took part in a final that brings us closer to being a tetra”, he concluded.
Recall that in the other semi-final, Botafogo and Fluminense will fight for a place in the decision. The trophy will be decided next week in a two-legged draw.
