The story with Renato Gaucho

“Barcelona suffers its worst semi-final relegation, at home, in 31 years”, EL UNIVERSO highlighted in its post for the 3-0 defeat at Monumental Stadium in the first leg.
He commented on this by saying: “This Barcelona, which brought back to its huge fans the enthusiasm and pride of the unforgettable cup days of last year, thanks to the exciting individual and collective performance in the 2017 Libertadores, fell last night.”
“A team based on victories with luxury football – at Atlético Nacional, at home, and Estudiantes de la Plata, in Argentina – did not raise the self-esteem of the yellow people, who dreamed of repeating episodes like those in 1990 and 1998 when he arrived his club into the final. Barcelona yesterday were far from near-executing the Brazilians in Pele’s land – by eliminating Palmeiras and Santos, in the last 16 and quarter-finals, in that order,” he said.
In the rematch, Guayaquil won 1-0 in Porto Alegre. “Barcelona beat Gremio in the Libertadores Cup, but the fall of the bullfighting in Guayaquil decided to eliminate him in the semi-finals. The newspaper commented that the yellow records remain.”
“A great campaign in the Copa Libertadores 2017, regarding the desire to reach the final for the third time, was cut short in a disastrous 90 minutes. The defeat I suffered (0-3) against Gremio, in the Monumental, ensured that Barcelona closed with a victory, last night in Porto Alegre. , which was not enough to qualify, but it was enough to culminate in a dignified way the journey of the canary. Which was praised, generated dreams and fantasies among the yellow fans, and represented the return of bullfighters to the leading role at the international level, as in the past.”
“American champions like Atlético Nacional, Estudiantes de la Plata, Palmeiras, Santos and Gremio fell to Barcelona this year. According to the statistical data of journalist Alexis Martín Tamayo (Mr. Chip), Guillermo Almada’s board is the first in the history of Libertadores to win a visit by three Brazilian competitors in the same edition ( 0-2 to Botafogo, 0-1 against Santos, 0-1 to Gremio)”.
“In addition, tickets for the quarter-finals and semi-finals were obtained away from home: on penalties against Palmeiras and with a 0-1 victory over Santos, in that order. When Barcelona won as a visitor in this cup they did not receive much against them.”
“The union lost what they didn’t lose last night on their stage in this cup, but advanced to the final after 0-3 a week ago in Guayaquil,” he said.
In the only matches measured by the most important club championship in South America, the Fla team easily beat the yellow team. In 2020, they were measured for time in the history of the cup, and that was through the first set and in the first leg, which was held at the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Minjao beat the bullfighters 3-0, in an exhibition of “cute jojo”.
“Barcelona leaves the defeated Maracana,” he called the universe in its print version and added, “surrendered to the power of Fella, the title holder in the cup.”
“Gustavo Henrique (39th minute), Gabriel Barbosa (45th penalty) and Bruno Henrique (53) overcame the arcade of the Canary Islands last night, who did not go against greater resistance by the red and black cast who demonstrated their international standing from start to finish”, Chronic notes.
In the rematch, which was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic to September 22, the Canaries fell again and EL UNIVERSO highlighted: “Barcelona loses and deposits the cup in its worst group stage role”.
“Barcelona was simply a disaster in the Copa Libertadores 2020. So much so that yesterday, with the defeat against Flamengo, it set a negative record for the club in its participation in the tournament: never before in history has it lost its first four matches. In the group stage. Since yesterday, the current match is considered The worst start for the Canary since the (1961) competition in the most important competition for CONMEBOL clubs,” he continued.
“And as if this unfortunate data weren’t enough, Fabian Bustos’ managers suffered, in addition to four consecutive setbacks – which obviously prevented them from scoring points – only two goals in their favour, ten against them and three games lost as homeowners (in plus Flamengo, winning Independiente del Valle and Junior de Barranquilla in the yellow court) “He is at the bottom of the first group and will not be in the next round and the ambition of finishing third and going to South America is becoming increasingly unrealistic.”
