Vasco plays next Sunday only (12). The team faces bottom club América-MG, at home, in another battle in the battle against relegation to Serie B.
On the other hand, the leader will host Gremio on Thursday (9). The title duel is scheduled to begin at eight in the evening (Brasilia time).
How was the game?
The first half witnessed pressure from Botafogo, but the lack of offensive efficiency was punished with a goal. After wasting several chances, Lucio Flavio’s side made mistakes and Paulo Henrique opened the scoring after a beautiful attack down the right flank. This step resulted in Vasco’s improvement, which almost increased before the break.
In the final stage, Vasco managed to neutralize the opponent’s reaction attemptWho showed nervousness and wasted a series of offensive attacks. Tequinho, a pillar of the Botafogo side, was a symbol of his club’s tension and, in addition to receiving a yellow card, was suspended for the next match.
Objectives and highlights
Start one team. Botafogo started the match by corralling their opponents and creating a series of chances to open the scoring. The problem is that Victor Sa, Tequinho Soares and Junior Santos did not do their best in finishing and “saved” the defender Maicon, who avoided the worst at least twice in the first 15 minutes.
