Rossi went 1,134 minutes without conceding a goal in official matches in all competitions, becoming the goalkeeper with the longest unbeaten record for ‘Mengao’, one of Brazil’s most popular clubs and a natural candidate for Conmebol’s top tournament.

Era Daniele Ruizentered shortly before, the one who managed to beat Rossi with a point-blank shot from inside the area when there were 10 minutes left and his team was down to 10 due to the expulsion of Larry Vásquez, in the action that led to the ‘1-0 for the guests, converted on a penalty by Pedro.

The goal scored against Rossi at the Campín stadium in Bogota was of little consequence the second of the entire season: Only San Pablo managed to convert Flamengo on 6 December.

The former Boca goalkeeper, regardless of his impact on the Rio club, was the foreigner with the best unbeaten record in Brazil, surpassing the 1052 minutes from Paraguayan José de la Cruz Benítez Santa Cruz (SC Internazionale) in 1979.

Flamengo is one of the natural candidates due to its economic power and having been champions of this tournament in 1981, 2019 and 2022. Those who complete group E are Bolívar from Bolivia and Palestino from Chile.
