The Porto Alegre team opened the scoring in the 8th minute, in a penalty kick by Edenilson. It is worth mentioning that, when the penalty was awarded (which was highly contested), defender Philipe Sampaio was sent off. With one more man, Colorado managed to expand five minutes later, with Fabricio Bustos. However, in the 18th minute, Vinicius Lopes took advantage of the ball that was left after hits and hits to discount.
Even with one less man, Botafogo kept trying, and the insistence was rewarded in the 13th minute of the final stage, when Erison scored with a header. But the most emotional move came in stoppage time, when, after a quick counterattack, Hugo scored the turning point. The downside was the general brawl that started after the final whistle.
A team that won at home this Sunday was Atlético-GO, which beat Juventude 3-1 at Antônio Accioly Stadium. With the result, built with goals from Léo Pereira, Wellington Rato and Airton, Dragão reached the 12th position with 16 points. The team from Rio Grande do Sul remained with 10 points, falling to the bottom.
