Post game

In addition to Botafogo's victory, one of the highlights of the match was coach Artur Jorge's positioning after the final whistle, recognizing the capacity and competence of the black and white team: We have a broader context to analyze. The game itself was not played very well by Botafogo. It was a more painful game than a well-played one, but it was a game where victory suits us very well because we didn't allow the opponent any opportunities and we had clear opportunities to score a goal. It’s a very strong rival because they hadn’t lost at home in 2024, and we managed to do it.”reported the coach, emphasizing issues that need to be corrected, but satisfied with the performance presented by the athletes.
