The match started in the best possible way for Glorioso. The score was opened after just eight minutes: Lucas Fernandes took a free-kick on the right and the Argentine Victor Cuesta deflected slightly with his head to score. Cuesta returned from injury just this Saturday (6). He had not played since July 10, in the defeat to Cuiabá, when he suffered a fracture on his face, an injury that made him play wearing a mask against Ceará.

With the advantage on the scoreboard, Botafogo started to manage the duel and let the northeastern team take control of the actions. In the first stage, Vozão did not find great opportunities, but luck changed right at the beginning of the second stage.

At three minutes, Vina took a corner from the right, Eduardo, from Botafogo, swept with his head and ended up leaving the ball in the spotlight so that Mendoza, in the small area, deflected it with his head to the goal defended by Gatito Fernández. All the same: 1 to 1.

From then on, the two teams, which do not have a great campaign in the Brasileirão, took turns in search of the winning goal, but without success.
