Brazilian Serie A wrap: Vasco honour coach with victory

1 September 2011 06:50

Corinthians maintained their lead at the top of the Brazilian Serie A on Wednesday as Vasco da Gama moved into second.

Just days after coach Ricardo Gomes suffered a stroke on the sidelines during their match against Flamengo, Vasco paid tribute to their mentor with a 3-1 victory at home against Ceara.

After a scoreless first half, Elton broke the deadlock on 51 minutes for the hosts, with Eder Luis doubling their advantage 10 minutes later.

Washington pulled one goal back for the visitors after 65 minutes, but Elton responded almost immediately with Vasco's third to put the result beyond doubt.

The win moves Vasco ahead of Flamengo and Sao Paulo into second, two points behind league-leaders Corinthians, who were 3-2 winners against Gremio.

The hosts led 3-1 after a Chicao penalty and goals from Paulinho and Ramon, but two red cards in the second half to Liedson and Edenilson brought Gremio back into the match.

Edcarlos managed to pull one back for the visitors, but the league-leaders held on to claim the three points.

Flamengo slipped to fourth after they lost 3-2 away to Avai, with Ronaldinho scoring a brace for the losers, while Sao Paulo fell 2-1 at home to Fluminense and had midfielder Jean sent off late in the match.

Botafogo remain third after their 3-1 victory over Palmeiras, while Figueirense jumped to seventh courtesy of their 4-2 win away at Cruzeiro.

A Mancini penalty was all that gave Atletico Mineiro the edge in their 1-0 win away at Atletico Paranaense, while Atletico Goianense scored a 3-1 win over Coritiba and Santos scored three goals in the final 15 minutes to salvage a 3-3 draw away to Internacional.
