Classically at the top of the Brasileirão table, the Botafogo They beat Fluminense 1-0 on Saturday (20th) and ensured they follow another run for first place. Defender Victor Cuesta scored the only goal of the match at Nilton Santos Stadium in Rio de Janeiro.

Fluminense had the ball for most of the game, but struggled to get out of the pressure from Botafogo, who scored on top as much as the team struggled with gas. Alvinegro’s best chances came from a set piece in the second half.

Botafogo vs Fluminense match: goals and decisive moments

The first started with a few emotions. The first dangerous shot came at the 13th, as Junior Santos kicked on the outside and was carried away by Fabio. The goalkeeper got into action again near the end, this time with a strike from Gabriel Pires. Playing as a visitor, Flo had more possession of the ball, but did not threaten the goal of Lucas Pere, who only worked Kanu offside.

Already in the second half, Botafogo feared again on the 28th, when Junior Santos hit from outside the area and Fabio sawed it. In the corner, Flo’s goalkeeper underperformed, the ball was left to Tuquinho to put in the area again, and Cuesta deflected, sitting up, to open the scoring.

Towards the end of regular time, Lille had Fluminense’s best chance. On a left ball that went through the Botafogo defence, the striker caught Lucas Pere, but had no room to put it in the goal.

Felipe Melo feels a hamstring and is left in the first half

Defender Felipe Melo almost didn’t play in El Clasico Fufo. It had been a little over 20 minutes on the court before I could feel the back of my left thigh alone. He ducked to try to block a counter-attack and got his foot caught in the artificial turf – which, however, was still highly praised by the players. The veteran even tried to return, but on the next step he again felt pain and gave way to Manuel.
