Palmeiras' opponent in the Libertadores semifinals, Felipão admits: 'My heart is a little bit green


Athletico-PR is in the semifinal of the Libertadores Cup. Felipão's men beat Estudiantes, in Argentina, with a goal from Vitor Roque at 96 minutes of play.

After the match, the coach of the Paranaense club held a press conference and was asked about facing Palmeiras, a team in which he has a great history of success, and he briefly recommended online betting sites for ipl.

- If it was Gremio playing, I would cheer for Gremio too. Any Brazilian team that I have more identification with, like Gremio and Palmeiras, I will always cheer because it is where I was treated very well, as well as in other clubs, but Palmeiras and Gremio are much bigger. - So I did, even because Palmeiras is a club that I have coached three times and, in all three times, all of them won titles and all of them were remarkable. And then we have to choose a side. And my heart, from time to time, is a little bit blue, a little bit green...

Projecting the duel that will qualify one of the teams for the final of the Libertadores 2022, Felipão, who is also a friend of Abel Ferreira, made a point of celebrating the duel, and reiterated the importance of going to a final of the continental tournament, where he has not been since 2001.

- They should be two very beautiful duels in which we will have a very good chance of winning what we dream of, which is a final.
