PREVIEW OF CRYSTAL VS FLAMENGO
Cristal vs Flamengo We will play yes or yes, hours after learning that the Peruvian authorities and CONMEBOL have decreed the suspension of the match for the first round of the Copa Libertadores. Eye: no fans will be present. Everything will be behind closed doors. There will only be admission for the accredited press.
As is known, the president of Peru, Pedro Castillo, Monday evening decreed a curfew for Lima and Callao, which caused quite a few problems for a meeting already scheduled for this Tuesday at 19:30 (Peruvian time). At first it was thought that the fight could take place behind closed doors, but everything changed from one moment to the next.
In the afternoon, when thousands of Peruvians walked the streets in protest against the president’s handling, the IPD (Peruvian Institute of Peru) announced the cancellation of the meeting between Peruvians and Brazilians, which meant rescheduling it.
And when many speculated that he would be moved to another date, Pedro Castillo appeared live to indicate that he would leave the curfew ineffective, which immediately alerted the authorities in charge of carrying out the confrontation for the Copa Libertadores.
With quick reaction CONMEBOL has shared, through its social networks, that the clash between Sporting Cristal and Flamengo will take place yes or yes tonightbut with different time: 20:00 in Peru (22:00 in Brazil) through the same broadcast channels.
Unfortunately for Sporting Cristal fans, they will not be able to attend the match despite having tickets in advance. It remains to await an official statement from the institution on returns or exchanges. There are still people protesting on the streets and trying to protect all citizens.
As soon as they gave the green light to the game, both Sporting Cristal and Flamengo left their respective concentration hotels and went to the National Stadium, the place where the Peruvian team recently sealed their pass for the playoffs of the Qatar World Cup 2022 Cup.
As for the game, it was known that Yoshimar Yotún would be one of the main victims of the “blue” team. The chosen one would not be in optimal conditions for this important duel with the ‘mengao’. However, he has other variations.
