Brazil Serie A wrap: Botafogo, Atletico keep up stellar start

29 May 2012 10:45

Botafogo and Atletico Mineiro continued their perfect starts to the Brazil Serie A season with both notching wins on Sunday.

An 86th-minute winner from Lucas gave Botafogo a 3-2 victory at Coritiba, seeing them to the top of the table after the second round of matches.

Lucas cancelled out Lincoln's opener before Vitor Junior gave Botafogo the lead in the 26th minute.

Lucas Mendes levelled for last-placed Coritiba just after half-time, only for Lucas to complete his brace and net the winner.

Atletico also made it two wins from as many matches after Danilinho's 65th-minute goal gave them a 1-0 result at home to Corinthians.

Corinthians, who are yet to collect a point this season, had Fabio Santos sent off late in the encounter, while Atletico's Andre was also red-carded.

Fluminense and Figueirense played out a 2-2 draw in Rio de Janeiro.

Wallace was sent off just before the break for Fluminense, who led 1-0 at half-time, yet they still looked on track to collect three points.

Wagner put them 2-1 up on 67 minutes, only for Pablo to strike with a quarter of an hour to play to salvage a point for Figueirense.

Gremio edged Palmeiras 1-0 thanks to a goal from Andre Lima, while Luis Fabiano's strike saw Sao Paulo to a 1-0 victory at home to Bahia.

Santos, without stars Neymar and Ganso, played out a 0-0 draw with and Sport Recife.
