Without Alexander Lecaros, Botafogo drew 1-1 with Flamengo for the Brasileirao matchday 5

Without the presence of the Peruvian steering wheel Alexander Lecaros, Botafogo took a visiting point, after matching with Flamengo (1-1) by date 5 of Brasileirao. Our compatriot was on the substitute bench, but once again, he was left with the desire to add minutes and make his debut in the official Brazilian tournament.

A game that happened different scenarios, then, although from the initial whistle it was the homeowner who imposed his rhythm; that did not know how to take it to the scoreboard and as the saying goes, “goals that you do not make, goals that you do”.

In that sense, the first time the owner of the house had up to three clear chances to get ahead, perhaps the one that left the most with the contained scream, the one that Bruno Henrique had at 23 minutes. A cross from the left sector came just for the attacker; that head seemed to beat the goal of Fernández.

However, the archer providentially removed his hands and prevented his three clubs from being dropped.

For the second half and with the obligation to go for the result, Flamengo took a risk leaving spaces. A fact that was quite taken advantage of by the visiting squad.

However, it seemed that it was the ‘rubonegros’ who were ahead of 75′, but the main judge had to review the VAR and this confirmed that the goal scored – by Gabriel Barbosa – had been by hand.

This, on the other hand, was no problem for Botafogo, who with patience could do damage, little, but lethal. Thus at 90 + 3 ‘of the discounts, a free kick would be picked up by Pedro, who with presence in the area, achieved a half chalaca and placed the first.

Everything seemed to fall apart for Flamengo, who did not believe how that goal came about. Luckily for him, a foul inside the box six minutes later would give him that last chance. In front stood ‘Gabigol’, who from the twelve steps, would not fail.

With this tie at one, Botafogo remains undefeated in the Brasileirao start and already has six units (8th). While, Flamengo falls to 12th place with five points. On the following date, the Lecaros team will host Inter de Porto Alegre at home.
