Palmeiras coach, Muricy Ramalho, made it two 1-0 wins in a row after his side just did even to see off strugglers Sport in Recife. The victory, though, was due to a slice of fortune as Sport’s Bruno Telles put through his own net for the game’s only goal.

Atletico Mineiro stayed 2nd after a 3-2 home win over Coritiba. Atlético took a two-goal lead through Jonilson and Diego Tardelli. But Coritiba drew level with Démerson and Leozinho. Renan Oliveira – a name to look out for – popped up with the winner.

Goiás continued their remarkable run with a 2-1 win away at Santo André. The Serra Dourada side have now won their last five games on the trot but only around eight hundred fans turned up to see it.

After their 0-0 draw with Avaí, Corinthians have now gone three games without scoring from open play. The draw, though, put an end to Avaí’s five game winning streak.  

Vitória had won six and drawn one at home before the arrival of São Paulo. That record went after Dagoberto got the only goal in a truly awful match. The win was São Paulo’s third in a row and moved them up to 8th.

Fluminense went bottom after losing their relegation six-pointer at Atlético Paranaense. Paulo Baier grabbed the vital goal. New Atlético coach, Antônio Lopes takes charge today (Monday). Atlético remain in the relegation zone alongside Náutico and Sport Recife.
