Brasileirão Petrobras Week 21 - Catch Up

Santos 2-0 Botafogo

Last night at the Vila, Botafogo missed out on the chance to go top of the Brasileirão after a 2-0 defeat against Santos in the Week 21 catch up game last night. Neymar, with his new haircut, put Santos ahead with a quarter of an hour gone after a twisting run saw him beat international colleague Jefferson in the bottom corner. Thirteen minutes later and the hosts were two goals to the good, Borges with this 22nd goal of the season after his volley flew past the help less Jefferson from twenty yards out.

The victory for Santos lifts them to eleventh in the standings but Botafogo will be regretting their missed opportunity to go top. They remain in third two points behind Corinthians and Vasco da Gama but crucially now their game in hand has gone.

Don't forget week 31 takes place this weekend and they line up like this. Please note there has been a change to the advertised game on Sunday as well.
