Brazil Serie A wrap: Leaders held as Forlan fires

3 September 2012 05:24

Atletico Mineiro missed their chance to extend their lead in the Brazil Serie A after a 1-0 loss to Corinthians at Estadio do Pacaembu.

Paulo Andre got on the end of a Douglas dos Santos' cross in the 63rd to score the only goal of a contest that saw both sides end the match with 10 players.

Atletico are tied for first place with Fluminense on 44 points.

Internacional came from behind to rout Flamengo 4-1 on the back of a brace from veteran Diego Forlan.

Vagner Love scored the opener in the 14th minute to give Flamengo the lead, but an equaliser from Forlan in the 29th levelled proceedings.

Internacional dominated from then on with Josimar netting in the 39th minute and Forlan scoring his second in the 66th to give his side a two goal advantage.

Fabrico dos Santos Silva assisted Leandro Damiao in the 74th to seal Internacional's victory.

Cruzerio shut out Nautico in their 3-0 win at Estádio Raimundo Sampaio.

Both sides were held scoreless until the 75th minute when Borges netted to give Cruzerio the lead.

Nautico's hopes of an equaliser were lost after Elber scored in the 87th and Wellington Paulista converted in the 90th minute for the home side to seal the points.

Cruzerio's win keeps them in touch with Sao Paulo and Internacional – all tied for fifth place on 34 points.

Meanwhile, Sport Recife defeated Santos 2-1.

Hugo scored in the third minute to give Sport Recife the early opener from Cicinho's assist.

The home side's second came from Felipe Azevedo in the 37th minute, but Santos rallied in the second half to get a goal back through Andre Felipe.

But they failed to find a second in the closing stages as Sport Recife held on.

Also, Ponte Preta defeated Atletico Go 3-1 after a flurry of second half goals.

Trailing 1-0 at half-time - goals from Giancarlo in the 58th minute, Ferron 10 minutes later and Cleber Reis in the 85th secured the home side's win.

In Sunday's other match Botafogo beat Cortiba 2-0.
