December 21, 2019

Head to head (H2H) results history

The two sides met once before in the 1981 Intercontinental Cup in Tokyo, with Flamengo winning 3-0. Brazil legend Zico was named man of the match.




Final Score: Liverpool 1-0 Flamengo!

115′ Alexander-Arnold takes it, as you’d expect, and forces a save from Alves.

113′ Clever from Lallana as he picks up a Mane pass around the Flamengo box and invites the foul.

108′ A headed clearance drops to Barbosa but he flashes a left-footed effort wide.


105′ James Milner Booked.

103′ Vitinho has a go with a free-kick from 35 yards but can’t even get it on target.

102′ Lincoln IN for Gerson for Flamengo!

100′ James Milner IN for Keita!

100′ Roberto Firmino Booked!

99′ GOOOOAAALLL!! Roberto Firmino Scores! Liverpool In LEAD!

We are Underway for Extra Time!

It’s Level! So game will go into Extra Time!

NO PENALTY is given by Referee after VAR Check!


90′ Rafinha Booked!

90′ Victor Vinícius Coelho dos Santos Booked!

86′ Henderson from 25-yards, curls a great shot on target but the ‘keeper tips it over!

82′ Everton Ribeiro IN for Diego for Flamengo!

81′ Mohammad Salah Booked!

77′ Substitution for Flamengo

Victor Vinícius Coelho dos Santos IN

Giorgian De Arrascaeta OUT

75′ Substitution for Liverpool

Adam Lallana IN

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain OUT

73′ Huge worry for Liverpool as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain slaps the turf in pain after going down.

66′ Another clever run from Barbosa but he’s tracked all the way by Van Dijk.

57′ Excellent play from Salah gets Oxlade-Chamberlain in on the left of the box but his attempt at a pick-out is a poor one.

53′ This contest is Heating Up!

Barbosa turns quickly in the box and shoots before Van Dijk can get tight but Alisson does brilliantly to push it round the post. 

51′ Another MISS! Alexander-Arnold smashes a low cross in from the right and Salah meets it but can only direct the ball wide of the post.

Second Half Underway!


45+1′ Sadio Mane Booked!

42′ Liverpool get the chance to deliver a free-kick into the Flamengo box but the chance comes to nothing as the referee spots a foul from Jordan Henderson. 

Well! Well! Replays show that should, in fact, have been a penalty – the Reds captain being blatantly pulled down in the area. Poor from the referee.

37′ Liverpool break from Flamengo corner! But it’s a poor decision from Salah to try & pick the man out on far side early and the move breaks down as a result.

31′ After an incredibly shaky start, Flamengo are now looking a heck of a lot more comfortable.

26′ Flamengo enjoy a spell of possession before Bruno Henrique shoots in behind to chase a long ball from the back!

20′ First real threat from Flamengo as Barbosa gets down the Flamengo right and pulls the ball back across the box. There’s nobody there to convert, however, and Liverpool get it away.

12′ Flamengo struggling to get out but Liverpool not making the most of some promising positions just yet. It’s going to be hard work for the Brazilians if it carries on like this.

5′ Another BIG MISS!!

Salah bursts in behind and holds the ball up well before teeing up Keita but, like Firmino before him, the Guinean can only shoot over.

1′ : What a chance for Liverpool after 41 seconds!

Alexander-Arnold lofts the ball back into the box & Firmino is in behind one-on-one. But he can only side foot the ball over bar.
