Botafogo started the game a little better than their opponents, but Atlético MG quickly leveled the game. But the first half was not good from a technical standpoint, and the home team was only able to reach danger through free kicks. Glorious, not even that.

In the 10th minute, Mauricio Lemos took a free-kick (that didn’t exist) and Lucas Perri made a great save at the top. At the age of 29, Pavon took a free kick and was saved again by the Botafogo goalkeeper. Eventually, at 40, Atletico MG were awarded a corner kick and Paulinho, free, headed wide.

Botafogo were forced to make changes in the first half, as Lucas Perri felt pain in his lower back. Gatito Fernandez came in and had to work. In the 11th minute, Atletico MG arrived right in the middle, Paulinho broke into the penalty area and finished the ball, and the black and white goalkeeper stretched and blocked an important shot, preventing the opening of the scoring.

Bruno Lage changed the attacking pieces, but Botafogo continued to have a lot of difficulties creating chances, with Eduardo severely vulnerable. Atletico MG was able to open the scoring, at 35. Pedrinho shot from a long distance, Paulinho received it in front of De Placido, advanced and was able to touch it between Gatito and the post: 1 to 0.
