Palmeiras and Flamengo will compete in the Copa Libertadores final on Saturday, and David Luiz has praised his team’s ability. Indeed, among football news today, David Luiz believes Flamengo can compete in Champions League, that is, the biggest European stage.

David Luiz, a former Chelsea centre-back, joined Flamengo in September after his contract with Arsenal expired (rumours of football transfers).

In leaving the Gunners thus, Luiz concluded a 14-year involvement with European football.

And while Palmeiras are focused on the weekend, David Luiz explained to Stats Perform why he believes in Flamengo.

He even went so far as to say that they are capable of competing in Europe’s top club league.

David Luiz Believes Flamengo Can Compete in Champions League

Flamengo are preparing for the Copa Libertadores final against Palmeiras. And David Luiz feels Flamengo have “without a doubt” the quality to participate in the Champions League.

“I believe that is right,” David Luiz responded when asked whether Flamengo could cut it in the Champions League.

“Flamengo is the first club to be organised to give players the opportunity to represent and do best what we have to do, and that is to play football the best way we can.

“We have an amazing structure – high calibre players, players who have played in numerous places and have a lot of quality. I believe, yes, we have the quality to play in the Champions League, without a doubt.”

Palmeiras are eyeing a title defence in Montevideo after winning last year’s final over Santos in CONMEBOL’s top-tier club tournament.
