CURITIBA, Brazil (Reuters) - Athletico Paranaense came from behind to salvage a draw with Botafogo on Wednesday but a missed penalty in stoppage time prevented the home side from taking all three points.
Victor Luis put Botafogo 1-0 up from the penalty spot with 10 minutes remaining but Ravanelli equalised for Athletico two minutes from time.
Nikao then blasted his spot-kick over the bar in the third minute of stoppage time to leave Athletico in 16th position in the 20-team Serie A with eight points from nine matches. Botafogo sit one place above them with nine points from eight games.
