Brenner e Rodrigo Pimpão marcaram os gols do triunfo brasileiro.

Falou em emoção e gol no fim, falou com o Botafogo.

A última cartada de Valentim foi colocar Rodrigo Pimpão na vaga de Leandro Carvalho.

O Botafogo lutou muito e, graças a um gol nos acréscimos, venceu de virada nesta quinta-feira o Audax Italiano, do atacante uruguaio Loco Abreu, por 2 a 1, largando na frente, fora de casa, no duelo pela primeira fase da Copa Sul-Americana.

A partida de volta será realizada no dia 9 de maio, no estádio Nilton Santos.

Agora como adversário, Loco Abreu não esconde o carinho que tem com o Botafogo, onde virou ídolo da torcida alvinegro em sua passagem pelo clube. Apesar da tentativa de retornar para o gramado, o meio-campo, um dos destaques nos dois duelos da final do Campeonato Carioca, não aguentou e deu lugar para Matheus Fernandes.

Com um jogo equilibrado e parelho, a melhor opção pelo Botafogo era o lado esquerdo, com ultrapassagens e cruzamentos de Gilson.

Aos poucos, o Audax Italiano começou a acreditar e buscar o jogo. A principal chance foi aos 31 minutos, quando o lateral Manuel Fernández viu uma cabeçada tirar tinta da trave. Gatito ainda fez uma grande defesa, mas não teve como evitar no rebote a finalização de Sergio Santos, aos 41, abrindo o placar.

Ainda no início do segundo tempo, o time chileno passou a contar com Loco Abreu em campo. Em cruzamento para área, ele viu a bola sobrar limpa dentro da área e estufou as redes de Peric. Valencia havia passado da bola e ajeitou para Marcelo, que chutou em cima da zaga.

Gatito; Marcinho, Joel Carli, Igor Rabello, Gilson; Marcelo, Rodrigo Lindoso, Renatinho (Matheus Fernandes e Marcos Vinicius), Leandro Carvalho (Pimpão) e Leo Valência; Brenner.

Na volta do segundo tempo, o Botafogo quase chegou ao empate logo nos primeiros minutos. Audax Italiano 1 x 1 Botafogo!
