Flamengo is certain to meet Liverpool in the final of the Club World Cup final this year. Speaking on paper, clearly the Marseyside Team is superior to winning and coming out as champions in the match later. However, former Brazilian national team goalkeeper, Julio Cesar insisted that Flamengo was more than able to defeat the European Representative.
For information, Flamengo itself is one of the contestants at the Club World Cup this year after winning the Copa Libertadores title. Interestingly, the team under the supervision of Gabriel Barbosa managed to step up to the final round. They got the place after beating the Qatari team, Al-Sadd in the last four.
Meanwhile on the one hand Liverpool managed to advance to the final round after defeating the CONCACAF deputy, Monterrey in the semifinals with a final score of 2-1. Flamengo will play the final against Liverpool this weekend. Obviously when speaking on paper, Jurgen Klopp’s team is more favored to win in the party later.
However, Julio Cesar believes that Flamengo also has the power to defeat the Marseyside Team at the party.
“Flamengo has a chance to win this championship,” Cesar said, quoted by Goal International.
It is true that Liverpool are far more favored in the match later, but Julio Cesar asked the public not to underestimate the opportunities of the Brazilian representative.
“Flamengo is very confident ahead of the finals. They will face Liverpool which we know is a great team. But I am sure that Flamengo fulfills all the requirements to win this match. Flamengo showed a beautiful game this year. “He said.
Liverpool may have a top manager in Jurgen Klopp, but Jorge Jesus, who handles Flamengo, is equally quality.
“Since the arrival of Jorge Jesus, the players can quickly know the philosophy and also the method he wants, so Flamengo won two competitions this season,
namely the Brazilian League and the Copa Libertadores. I am sure that Flamengo will advance to the final with very high confidence,” he concluded.
The final match between Liverpool against Flamengo will take place on 22 December, in Doha, Qatar.
