To many, it comes as no surprise that Flamengo is among the two Libertadores finalists – they are, by far, the most popular club in Brazil and one of the Big 12 (Brazil’s most popular and successful soccer teams). Founded as a rowing club in 1895, Flamengo switched to soccer in 1911, and they haven’t looked back. Their first claim to fame was before the Brazilian national soccer championship was even established in 1959, when they won several Campeonatos Carioca. From then on, Flamengo earned a reputation for being one of the most successful Brazilian clubs. Among their many victories, the team counts winning the Libertadores in 1981 and 2019.
A strong contender, Athletico-PR is considered the most successful team outside of, and that is often on par with, the Big 12. They were founded in 1924, as the result of a merger between two traditional clubs in Curitiba. The team has played in some of South America’s largest tournaments, including Copa Sudamericana – and while they’ve never won the Copa Libertadores, Athletico-PR has competed in the competition six times. This will be their seventh Copa Libertadores, and second time as finalists.
