Brazil Serie A wrap: Atletico, Fluminense snatch wins

13 August 2012 02:32

Atletico Mineiro have extended their lead in Brazil's Serie A with a 1-0 win in a top-of-the-table clash against Vasco da Gama.

Jo's 70th-minute goal was the difference in Sunday's match as Mineiro, who have played one fewer game than Vasco, moved four points clear of the club from Rio de Janeiro, who dropped to third.

Mineiro's two highest-profile players combined for the only goal of the game against Vasco with Ronaldinho dropping the shoulder on the left-hand side of the box to burst past the visitors' defender and get to the byline.

The former Barcelona and AC Milan star whipped in a cross that Vasco goalkeeper Fernando Prass failed to hold and former Manchester City striker Jo was there to take advantage, flicking his header inside the far post.

Fluminense went ahead of Vasco into second overall with a 1-0 victory over Palmeiras thanks to a late goal from Jean.

After 83 scoreless minutes, the home side broke the deadlock when Rafael Sobis set up 26-year-old midfielder Jean for a goal.

Fluminense are now on 35 points, three points behind Mineiro.

Gremio are in fourth after they came from behind to win 2-1 away to Sao Paulo with Andre Lima's injury-time goal clinching victory for the away team.

Cicero gave Sao Paulo the lead in the 40th minute, bursting through the middle of Gremio's defence to collect Jadson's pass and score from close to the penalty spot.

Gremio equalised in the 67th minute when defender Werley got to Marquinhos' corner first to score with his head and the visitors from Porto Alegre completed their comeback in the second minute of injury time.

Ze Roberto curled a cross to the back post, which Kleber headed back across goal and Lima slid in to score.

In other results on Sunday, Internacional knocked off Ponte Preta 2-1, Portuguesa drew 1-1 with Botafogo and Corinthians defeated Coritiba 2-1.
