Athletico-PR 1 x 0 Botafogo – Best Moments – 9th round of the Brazilian Championship

The athletic team came from four consecutive defeats, with two in Serie A. During this period, the team qualified on penalties for the quarterfinals of the Copa do Brasil, which softened the negative series.

The triumph put Athletico from 11th place to fourth, with 15 points, although it will leave the G-4 with the complement of the round.

We are always looking for that balance, but we have to know that we are human beings and we are facing great teams. The time will come when we will reach the point, from talking and working so much on a daily basis

— Paulo Turra, at a press conference

Unlike the Copa do Brasil games, when they qualified in the struggle, Athletico knew how to neutralize Botafogo this time. The team from Rio even made Bento work twice, but in kicks from outside the area in the first half. And that was it.

The scenario improved even more with Alex Santana’s great goal, in a kick in the middle corner. In advantage, Hurricane had space to use the transition, especially in the second half, and just didn’t increase by Canobbio’s lost goals and for missing the last pass. Defensively, he didn’t suffer risks until the final whistle.

We saw what we did wrong (against them) and applied it. Aggressiveness, we stole a lot of the ball, we left in transition, which is what Turra asks for.
