Battle of Beira-Rio: Botafogo changes its place on the football shelf.

Botafogo achieved a historic victory at the international level. He overcame a capable opponent at home, and went through an arbitration that hurt him from the first to the last minute of the match. But there are some things we can feel from this game and the latest developments. Botafogo changed the shelf in Brazilian football in relation to the country’s governing bodies and its behavior on the field.

Maturity of the team drew attention to the behavior on the field. Below 2-0 due to the refereeing scandal and starting the game with one player is to get the nerves of any team out. Botafogo remained balanced for 90 minutes. He tried to impose himself, responding strongly to the provocation. But without losing class. At least until the last battle, after his winning goal. By no means do I want to convey that I recommend for the mother to be inactive.

More than everything! With Botafogo goalkeeper the referee misses and the channel approves.

Glorioso did not for a moment believe that he could win or at least score. This was making the result, weakening the Inter’s power and forcing the opponent, even with another man, to misuse the air balls.

Botafogo is viewed through different eyes.

The game against Inter brought lessons for Botafogo

In terms of relationships with organizations, I wrote yesterday about how some leaders were concerned about the impact of this case, even more so after John Textor’s post on social networks. Before the company was formed, the club had no prestige in the institutions. In less than 24 hours, the CBF knocked the VAR team out of the Sao Paulo Classic and removed the game referee, Savio, from the scale of the next games.

Even the refrigerator, where its president Robbins Lopez mocked the club over arbitration complaints, has a different attitude. After making mistakes against Fluminense in the state semifinals, Textor made it clear that he intends to compete with Team B in the tournament. The institution’s silence on the subject was embarrassing.

More than everything! The window will explain Botafogo’s destination for the season.

The text comes from a background where football is for profit. So we will see in Vasco da 777, in Bragantino in Red Bull, in Cruzeiro with Ronaldo and many other cases. Also, it is inconceivable to see these businessmen embracing the amateur who has dominated Brazilian football in recent decades. Institutions are realizing that it is better not to choose to fight. Botafogo changed its place on the football shelf. But he has a long way to go. However, you are on the right track.
