In an exciting Brazilian Cup final held at the Morumbi Stadium, last Sunday, the 24th, São Paulo Futebol Clube won an unprecedented title in front of their fanatical fans. The game, full of emotions, ended in a 1-1 draw, with goals from Rodrigo Nestor, in the 50th minute of the first half, for São Paulo, and Bruno Henrique, in the 44th minute of the first half, for Flamengo. 

The match was marked by an intense rivalry between the teams, and the tension was visible from the beginning. Flamengo, seeking a second consecutive Brazilian Cup title, opened the scoring with a goal from Bruno Henrique, who took advantage of a cross shot from Erick Pulgar to put Mengão ahead in the match. After a free kick and a strange exit from goalkeeper Rossi, Rodrigo Nestor, in the final minute of first half stoppage time, equalized for São Paulo with a precise shot from outside the area, driving the Tricolor fans crazy. 

But the highlight of the night was not only São Paulo's unprecedented title, but also the personal rematch of their coach, Dorival Júnior. The tricolor's current coach was fired from Flamengo at the beginning of the year, amid a series of adverse results. This victory in the Copa do Brasil final marked a moment of redemption for Dorival, who proved his worth at the helm of São Paulo. 

On the other hand, the result of the game also leaves Flamengo with an unwanted mark. With this defeat in the final, Flamengo becomes the club with the most runners-up in the history of the Copa do Brasil, accumulating a total of 5 runners-up over the years. This mark includes the following editions in which Flamengo was runner-up: 1997, 2003, 2013, 2017 and now in 2023. Despite its success in other competitions, the Rio club continues to seek consecration in the Copa do Brasil. 

In short, the game between São Paulo and Flamengo in the final of the Copa do Brasil was a true football spectacle, full of twists and turns and emotions. São Paulo celebrates winning an unprecedented title, while Flamengo regrets yet another runner-up in its history in the competition. The rivalry between these teams promises to remain fierce in the next meetings.
