Brazil Serie A wrap: Cruzeiro grab late point

27 August 2012 03:26

Cruzeiro have denied Atletico Mineiro victory thanks to an injury-time equaliser from Mateus in their 2-2 draw in Brazil's Serie A.

In a match disrupted by an on-field brawl and crowd trouble at the hour mark, the referee allowed 12 minutes of injury time in the second half, which gave Cruzeiro time to secure the draw.

Cruzeiro took the lead after 16 minutes through Wallyson but league leaders Mineiro drew level just before half-time thanks to a goal from Leonardo Silva.

Each side lost a player to a red card in the 59th minute after Cruzeiro's Leandro Guerreiro and Bernard of Mineiro clashed on the sideline.

The visitors went down to nine men in the 89th minute when Pierre was given his marching orders but Mineiro looked to have secured victory when Ronaldinho beat two opponents to put his side 2-1 ahead.

However, in the 102nd minute, Mateus tapped home the equaliser sparking wild scenes in the stands as Cruzeiro's fans celebrated the draw.

Mineiro moved clear at the top of Brazil's Serie A with the draw and still have a game in hand over second-placed Fluminense.

Gremio moved to third with a 1-0 win at Internacional, while Sao Paulo defeated Corinthians 2-1 to move to fifth.

Figueirense remain bottom of Brazil's Serie A despite their 3-1 win over Coritiba.

Aloisio scored a hat-trick, including two goals in four first-half minutes, as Figueirense won just their third match of the season.

In other results, Botafogo drew 0-0 with Flamengo and Bahia were held 1-1 at home by Atletico GO, while Sport Recife and Nautico played out a goalless draw.
