Botafogo reacted but did not get the turn over Juventude, who handled and celebrated the tie by 1 to 1 today at Nilton Santos. Paulo Sérgio opened the scoring and Erik closed the scoring.
The game was marked by the incredible goal lost by Kieza already in the extras. He received a pass from Luiz Fernando and, without goalkeeper, sent out. Alvinegro was better throughout the match, but failed to pierce the youth boom that closed completely after scoring his goal in the match.
The result is bad for Botafogo who can not miss in the return match, in Caxias do Sul (RS) next Thursday at Alfredo Jaconi. In case of a new tie, the vacancy will be defined on penalties. Whoever wins in normal time, qualifies.

The main defense occurred in a kick at Gabriel's point of view.
Dominant, Botafogo ties with Erik
