Flamengo defeated River Plate 2-1 to win the 2019 Copa Libertadores title. Rafael Santos Borre stunned Flamengo after scoring in the 14th minute. River Plate’s victory was looking near. However, the former Inter Milan forward Gabriel Barbosa scored twice and earned the red card to win the match 2-1.
Flamengo’s victory created a great level of emotion for the current generation, who collected the Libertadores title for the second time in their history, having won the first one back in 1980-81. The 23-year-old Barbosa failed to shine at Inter but can take this final as a way to make his career bigger and better.
