Santos coach Dorival Junior is close to leading his side to the playoffs

Santos’ run of nine wins in a row in the Paulista came to an end on Sunday night when they were held 1-1 by Portuguesa in the estádio Canindé. Héverton struck first for the homeside and Santos had to wait until the 89th minute before Zé Eduardo grabbed an equalizer. With 32 points, Santos are edging ever closer to securing a place in the semi-finals alongside minnows Santo André who completed a great week by smashing playoff rivals Botafogo 4-1 in the estádio Bruno Jose Daniel. The travellers went ahead through Leandro Amaro. But goals from Bruno Cesar, Branquinho, Ricardo Conceição and Nunes secured the points. The victory came after a midweek win away at Palmeiras.

Two goals for Washington earned São Paulo the points at Ponte Preta. And Corinthians are now fourth after Dentinho scored a late winner in a dull match versus São Caetano in the Arena Barueri.

Saturday’s game between Palmeiras and Sertãozinho was postponed because of a waterlogged pitch at the Palestra Itália. The game will be in the Arena Barueri tonight.

Rio Branco, Monte Azul, Paulista and Sertãozinho occupy the bottom four places.

    the Carioca has quite an odd format. there are different stages with different trophies. Botafogo won the first stage and in so doing guaranteed themselves a place in the competition final – but they still have to play all the second stage games!
    take a look here at Matt’s site on football in Rio. it explains the tournament in more detail
