Libertadores: Cruzeiro in the Final
Cruzeiro reached the final of Copa Libertadores after a 2 goals draw against Gremio. Gremio played at home, but in 4 minutes (between the 34th and the 38th minutes) the visitors scored twice and buried the dreams of the home team.
The final will be against Estudiantes from Argentina on the 8th and the 15th. The final game will be in Brazil.
After the final of Copa do Brasil and semi of the Libertadores, the joke that goes around in Brazil is this:
What do Inter Gremio and Michael Jackson have in common? They all promised a great performance, sold out all tickets and died at home. =P
The negative thing about this game was how Gremio fans reacted to Elicarlos, the player who accused Gremio’s Maxi Lopes of racism. Every time Elicarlos touched the ball, the fans emulated the sounds and gestures of monkeys. Shameful.
