Palmeiras and Flamengo's road to the 2021 Copa Libertadores final
Palmeiras proved formidable customers in the 2020 Libertadores, as they fought through to the final and then netted a 99th minute winner through Breno Lopes to take the trophy.
Abel Ferreira's team is amongst the most solid on the continent, and they proved as much by advancing to yet another decider while suffering just one defeat.
Having finished top of their group, Palmeiras advanced past Universidad Catolica and Sao Paulo arch-rivals Sao Paulo to set up another all-Brazilian clash against highly rated Atletico Mineiro in the semis.
The star-studded Belo Horizonte side were also squeezed out, as Palmeiras came back from behind to win on away goals and prove that the Verdao can never be written off.
Having suffered a shock exit in 2020 at the hands of Racing Club, meanwhile, Flamengo have been in imperious form throughout this year's edition.
With ex-Gremio coach Renato Gaucho on the bench the Rio de Janeiro side made short work of the opening knockout rounds, thrashing Paraguay's Olimpia and Argentina's Defensa y Justicia by aggregate margins of 9-2 and 5-1 respectively.
Bruno Henrique then came to the fore in the semi-finals, scoring all of his side's goals across the two legs as Barcelona were dispatched 4-0 on aggregate. Bruno has been one of the stars of the show for Flamengo alongside the ever-reliable Gabriel 'Gabigol' Barbosa, top scorer in this year's Copa with 10 goals to date.
