When everything was getting ready for extra time, in the most isolated play of the game, with a header, in the 98th minute, Breno Lopes scored the goal that gave Palmeiras the title in the Copa Libertadores 2020.
A game that was not at all portentous, far from it. Few shots on goal, very locked, a lot of fear and respect, although quite a strong leg, but little football. Palmeiras and Santos signed the tie and the extension, but Bruno Lopes would have one more. One to keep.
In a superb header after a cross from the right by Rony, in the 90 + 9 minute, Breno Lopes gave the Cup to Verdao, which consolidated itself as the best team in a competition affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
The scoring of the midfielder, who was entered in the second half by the youthful Gabriel Menino, brought excitement to a tedious and unexciting final.
The greatest ecstasies came from feints of scuffles and fights in the third Brazilian final in Copa history.
Palmeiras won his second final, after the rise in 1999 against Deportivo Cali from Colombia, with a team that knew how to mix the experience of internationals like Weverton, Paraguayan Gustavo Gómez, and pullantes attackers like Luiz Adriano and Rony, with a promising base.
