Dentinho and Ralf go fishing at the Pacaembu

Corinthians maintained their 100% home record after a 4-2 win against archenemies Santos in the Pacaembu. Jorge Henrique gave the Musketeers an early lead after he pounced on a mistake by Santos keeper Felipe. But then Corinthians were pegged back as Santos took the initiative. The away side finally got an equalizer in the second-half when André Ribeiro struck. But Corinthians responded with quick goals from Bruno César and Ralf; and Paulinho added the icing on the cake. See the highlights

Newly-promoted Ceará continue to surprise. On Sunday, a goal by Lopes was enough to guarantee the points against Cruzeiro and move the Fortaleza club into second.

Muricy Ramalho’s arrival at Fluminense is already having an effect. Midweek, Flu beat bitter rivals Flamengo. On Sunday, they came from behind away at Atlético Mineiro to win 3-1. Last season, the Rio side only just escaped relegation but with new faces arriving, Fluminense are hoping for better things this time round.

Despite firing coach Jorge Fossati earlier in the week, Internacional pulled off a resounding 4-1 win over early strugglers Atlético Paranaense in the Beira-Rio.

Current champions took to the field without Adriano on Saturday. After going in front through Petkovic, Flamengo conceded in the second-half to a goal by Grêmio’s Rodrigo.

For once there were plenty of goalless games. The matches involving Palmeiras and Grêmio Prudente, Avaí and Vitória, Guarani and São Paulo all finished scoreless.

    Coritiba have been struggling a bit in Serie B. Think they will be able to come straight back up?

    Also meant to say that I am frustrated with the Galo result. They have not played well once since the Campeonato Mineiro.

      Luxemburgo is rebuilding the squad and this takes time – only problem is that the Atlético management are famous for a lack of patience. so, the coach better start getting results soon
