Seedorf on target in Botafogo victory

Feb 8 2013, 1:50am CST | by

Rio de Janeiro, Feb 8 (IANS) Former AC Milan and Real Madrid midfielder Clarence Seedorf continued his prolific goal-scoring form as Botafogo rallied to defeat Resende 4-2 in Rio's Campeonato Carioca.

Rio de Janeiro, Feb 8 — Former AC Milan and Real Madrid midfielder Clarence Seedorf continued his prolific goal-scoring form as Botafogo rallied to defeat Resende 4-2 in Rio's Campeonato Carioca.

Resende led 2-0 late in the first half but goals from Seedorf, Marcio Azevedo, Cidinho and Sassa ensured victory for Botafogo at the Engenhao Stadium Thursday, reports Xinhua.

Seedorf, 36, has now scored four goals in his past two matches, having netted a hat-trick in his team's 3-1 win over Macae Sunday.

"We can't afford to start matches so slowly," said the former Dutch international, who is relishing the advanced playmaker role accorded to him by Botafogo coach Oswaldo de Oliveira.

"We responded well after conceding two early goals but we have to learn to start matches with more conviction," he added.

In Sao Paulo's Campeonato Paulista, Marcio Araujo and Henrique struck first-half goals as Palmeiras overcame Atletico Sorocaba at the Pacaembu Stadium.

How Keisuke Honda Has Been Growing into His Role with AC Milan

Oct 8 2014 8:50am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Much was expected of Keisuke Honda when he was brought over on a free transfer last January from CSKA Moscow to join AC Milan. After all, the Japanese international was one of the best players in the Russian Premier League, and he had showed on an international level how good he could be linking up with teammates and excelling as a set-piece specialist. Unfortunately, Honda wasn't able to acclimate to Serie A at all in his first season. Perhaps it had something to do with him ...

Why AC Milan Must Finish in 3rd in Serie a This Season

Sep 28 2014 12:29pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Empoli vs. AC Milan: Winners and Losers from Serie a Match

Sep 23 2014 4:32pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

No one really understands AC Milan just yet. They have scored 10 goals in four Serie A games but they have also conceded eight. Both numbers are the highest in the league. What is certain is that Milan are exciting again. They play a sort of kamikaze football under coach Pippo Inzaghi, and the trend continued on Tuesday when they played and drew 2-2 with Empoli. Milan let in yet another goal off a set piece and Daniele Bonera made another fatal mistake in defence.  Bonera has played under C ...

Click here to view the embedded video. Nowadays Inzaghi cannot influence such matches in the same way, but he can sti ...

AC Milan vs. Juventus Key Issues That Will Shape Serie A Game

Sep 19 2014 3:44am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Juventus travel to Milan on Saturday in what is already a top-of-the-table clash. The teams are joined by Roma as the only sides to have gleaned maximum points from the opening two rounds of Serie A. While the Bianconeri have seemingly sat atop the division without interruption for the last three years, it has been a very different story for the San Siro giants. Following their Scudetto triumph in 2010-11, Milan fi ...
