The last five minutes of the Copa Libertadores between River Plate and Flamengo were mental

Flamengo v River Plate - Copa CONMEBOL Libertadores 2019

Flamengo have won the Copa Libertadores after a crazy final few minutes against River Plate.

River Plate led for almost the whole match after taking a 14th-minute lead through Rafael Borre.

They then went on to dominate the match and looked set to see out an expected win against their Brazilian opponents.

That was until goalscoring superstar, Gabriel Barbosa, came alive.

The 23-year-old - on loan from Inter Milan - had a quiet game until the 89th-minute when he grabbed an equaliser out of nowhere for Flamengo.

Then, in injury-time, they did the unthinkable.

Gabigol grabbed his 40th goal of the season to turn the final on its head.

Incredible scenes in Peru.

But that wasn’t the end of the drama in front of the 80,000 passionate fans in attendance.

River’s Exequiel Palacios was sent off for a frustrated kick out at an opponent.

Then the hero, Gabigol, was sent off.
