This is the final week of the Brazilian Championship, the Maracanã is completely sold out and, for the first time in 2009, Flamengo is the leader with 64 pts. Internacional (2nd), Palmeiras (3rd) and São Paulo (4th) are with 62 pts and are playing at the same time. Flamengo hasn't been Brazilian champion for 17 years and this is the chance for the most popular team in Brazil to end its drought. This could also be the pinnacle of Dejan Petković's career, a chance for redemption for Adriano "The Emperor" after rough years in Italy and another title for the legendary career of Andrade - his first one as a coach. The 2009 Brazilian Championship is considered the best one since the end of the play-off system in 2003.
