O Botafogo beat Boavista 2-0, this Sunday (31), at Nilton Santos, and won the Taça Rio title, a tournament played between the 5th and 8th placed teams in the Carioca Championship.

In addition to being champion, Alvinegro was also guaranteed the next edition of the Brazil’s Cup.

Tchê Tchê and Kauê scored the goals for the team led by Fábio Matias, who ended up winning 6-0 on aggregate.

In the 1st half, Botafogo basically attacked with Luiz Henrique, who gave Boavista’s defense a lot of work.

Alvinegro opened the scoring in the final stage with Tchê Tchê, from the penalty spot. After that, he only controlled the advantage and still came second with Kauê.

The duel also marked the return of Patrick de Paula after more than a year recovering from a serious injury to his left knee
