Neto Berola scores Vitória's second against Palmeiras

Palmeiras went down 3-2 away to Vitória but second-placed Internacional failed to take advantage by losing by the same score at home to Cruzeiro.

Goals from Uelliton, Neto Berola and debut boy, Derlei, earned Vitória three deserved points. This was the first time the Greens had conceded three in the league this season. Roberto Pinho struck a brace for Palmeiras. See the highlights

Palmeiras’ defeat left the door open for Internacional to go top if they could take at least a point from a Cruzeiro side languishing at the wrong end of the table. Despite going ahead through Alecsandro, Inter blew the chance. Former Tottenham man, Gilberto, struck twice. Andrezinho equalized for Inter. But Thiago Ribeiro stole the points for Cruzeiro. See the highlights

São Paulo are now just a point behind the top two after goals from Dagoberto and Hugo saw off Avaí in the Morumbi. Avaí went 11 unbeaten but have just lost their last three.

Onetime leaders Atlético Mineiro are back in the top four following a 2-1 win over Atlético Paranaense. Brazil man, Diego Tardelli, grabbed one of the goals to bring his tally to 11 for the season.

Goiás missed out on the chance to close in on the leaders losing 3-1 at Barueri.

It took Grêmio 12 attempts but they finally got their first away win of the season when they beat Náutico in Recife. Souza and Jonas were on target in the 2-0 win. Sport and Fluminense are still looking for their fist victory on the road. 

Adriano struck twice against a lack lustre Sport Recife. The Flamengo forward is joint top scorer in the competition alongside Grêmio’s Jonas with 12 each.  See Adriano’s goals

Santo André, Botafogo, Sport and Fluminense are the teams in the bottom four.
