Internacional fans are excited. After the 1-0 victory over Bolívar, in the altitude of La Paz, expectations are high for Colorado to play in a Libertadores semifinal again after eight years. For this, a big party is expected in the second leg of the quarterfinals, this Tuesday (29), at 19h, in Beira-Rio.
Tickets sold out last week. Due to some withdrawals, a new batch for members was opened at 12:00 this Tuesday, being completely sold out in a few minutes.

In the face of such demand, there is expectation of a new attendance record at Beira-Rio, recently broken in the standings against River Plate. 50,479 fans followed in loco Inter won 2-1 in normal time and 7-6 on penalties. However, the differential of the round of 16 second leg was the massive presence of Argentine fans, which should not be repeated by the Bolivians.
Check out the biggest audiences of the “new” Beira-Rio:
- Internacional 2 (7) x (6) 1 River Plate – Libertadores 2023 – 50,479
- Internacional 1 x 2 Athletico-PR – Copa do Brasil 2019 – 50,355
- Internacional 1 x 1 Flamengo – Libertadores 2019 – 49,614
No “Streets of Fire”
Unlike usual, this time the fans from Colorado will not perform the traditional “Streets of Fire”. The reason is simple: as the game is at 7 pm, Internacional’s delegation will arrive at Beira-Rio still under daylight, which considerably reduces the impact of the red flags.
Still, the party should be big. Colorados from the interior of Rio de Grande do Sul and other states mobilized caravans. On the eve of the game, more than 100 members of the Popular Guard, the club’s main supporters, organized the rags and all other details.
All ready for the Game!
We would like to thank the more than 100 members from different centers who helped with our logistics, making the last details for the party.
The united bar is still stronger than ever.

What does Inter need?
To qualify for the semifinals, it is enough for Internacional to draw with Bolívar. For the Bolivian team, only victory matters – for a goal difference, it takes the dispute to penalties, and for two or more, it qualifies in normal time.
Those who pass await the definition of the confrontation between Olimpia and Fluminense to know their opponent in the next phase. After the 2-0 victory in Rio de Janeiro, Fernando Diniz’s team may even lose by a goal difference next Thursday, at 9:30 pm, at Defensores del Chaco.
