Corinthians and Flamengo delivered a forgettable 0-0 draw in the first leg of the Brazilian Cup final Wednesday. However, there was some action worth mentioning in the stands thanks to the Timão's fans, who deployed a fantastic hawk-inspired 3D tifo before kick-off.

The Gaviões da Fiel — the biggest group of supporters of Corinthians — were behind the imposing design. The whole process took 14 days, and 100 fans worked together to raise it over the east stands of the Neo Química Arena.

The final result enthralled people in the stadium, including special guest FIFA president Gianni Infantino and those who followed the game on TV.
Originally, the tifo was crowned by the word Gaviões, but the authorities only allowed the bird's deployment for safety reasons.
