Abel Ferreira wins Libertadores with Palmeiras

Palmeiras, coached by Abel Ferreira, won the second Libertadores in their history this Saturday, beating Santos 1-0, with a goal practically in the last game of the match.

In a game of low level in terms of quality, very lacking and without the teams wanting to risk it, the 0-0 dragged on until the ninth minute of the discount time, until Breno, in a fantastic header to the far post after a millimeter crossing of Ron, scored the Verdão goal, driving the players and technical team, led by Abel, to madness.

A truly dramatic ending, similar to what, in 2019, led Flamengo, then coached by Jorge Jesus, to achieve the turnaround (2-1) against River Plate.

Abel thus becomes the second coach to win the biggest South American club competition and places the second Libertadores in history at the Palmeiras museum: Luiz Felipe Scolari had won the competition in 1999.
