Palmeiras and Botafogo-SP faced each other on Thursday night (2) in the Copa do Brasil, at 9:30 pm, at Allianz Parque, in a match that ended with a score of 2-1 for the home team.

Verdão is currently still competing in the Libertadores and Brasileirão and, therefore, coach Abel Ferreira tries to balance the players to keep them performing well in the three scenarios. Botafogo de Ribeirão Preto, under the guidance of Portuguese coach Paulo Gomes, advances for the second consecutive time to the third phase of the Copa do Brasil and competes in Series B.

In this Thursday's match, Palmeiras adopted a patient approach, seeking to alternate sides frequently in attack to break Botafogo-SP's defensive line. However, the Ribeirão Preto team also presented danger in counterattacks. The game was balanced, with both teams creating opportunities.

At 20 it was Schappo's turn to rise higher after a cross, but the defender headed over the goal, adding to another good opportunity wasted by the Ribeirão Preto team.

After an extensive exchange of passes from Palmeiras, at 27, Murilo receives the ball at the edge of the area and takes a chance on the shot, but it goes wide of Michael's goal. At 38, right after a wrong shot by Endrick, Palmeiras pressed at the edge of the Botafogo area, but found no gaps in the opposing defense and faced difficulties in creating scoring opportunities. At 44, Endrick finishes and makes the opposing goalkeeper make a great save, in the last important move of the period that ended at 49.

At seven, Luan crosses into the area, Lázaro heads it, but the ball goes over the goal. Then, Endrick makes a brilliant play, dribbles past two markers and hits the post. In search of the first goal, Verdão didn't take long and opened the scoring: Rony scored, but the crucial contribution came from Endrick, who provided the pass for Mayke to assist the number 10. Rony tried again at 15, and Lázaro made Michael spread the ball to prevent another goal from Palmeiras at 17. At 22 it was Botafogo's turn to react to an attempt by Matheus Barbosa, saved by Lomba.
