Botafogo have been largely poor away from home since the new Brazilian SerieB season started and that poor run continued when they faced CRB on Tuesday night. In what was a tenth round clash in the Brazilian Serie B this season, hosts CRB came from behind to beat Botafogo 2-1 at the Estadio Rei Pele in Maceio.

CRB goalkeeper Diogo Silva was impressive in the opening minutes of the encounter with Botafogo who are in the Brazilian Serie B after suffering relegation from the top division at the end of last season. Botafogo dominated the opening exchanges but could not score an early goal thanks to the heroics of the aforementioned Silva.
