This Monday afternoon (28), the CBF defined the field teams for the 2023 Copa do Brasil final. For the first time that the competition will be decided over two weekends, the first leg will be at Maracanã, while the decision of the most important knockout tournament on the national scene will take place at Morumbi. The matches will take place on the 17th and 24th of September.

The draw made the most pessimistic Flamengo fans congratulate São Paulo for an alleged ‘early title’, as the club is experiencing a troubled situation this season, and will still have to overcome the injuries to Arrascaeta and Luiz Araújo.

But on the Tricolor side, the discourse is that ‘nothing is won’. The São-Paulinos move around trying not to count on the victory before facing the current champion of the competition.

São Paulo decides less at home in the Copa do Brasil

Historically, São Paulo is one of the most successful teams in Brazilian football. Including, appointed by many as one of the greatest on the national scene in terms of tradition in national and international competitions. However, the Copa do Brasil is one of the few competitions that the São Paulo team has not won in its 97 years.

The team from São Paulo decided only 33.3% of the games at home since 2015 in the competition, in decisions that depended on a draw. On the other hand, Flamengo, opponents in this final, held 61.5% of the matches playing with the support of their fans.

Flamengo and São Paulo’s campaign in the Copa do Brasil

Both Flamengo and São Paulo started their trajectory in the Copa do Brasil in the third phase of the competition. The team from Rio overcame Maringá (8-4 on aggregate), Fluminense (2-0), Athletico-PR (4-1) and Grêmio (3-0) to reach the final of the competition.

On the other hand, Dorival Jr’s team, current winner of the competition, precisely under Flamengo’s command, overcame Ituano (1 to 0), Sport Recife (3 to 3 on aggregate, 5 to 3 on penalties), Palmeiras (3 to 1 ) and Corinthians (3 to 2) to qualify as a finalist in 2023.
