Corinthians' Paulo André gets mobbed

An injury time goal by Paulo André secured a point for Corinthians in the 2-2 draw away at Botafogo and kept his club at the top of the Brasileiro. The São Paulo side had gone in front through Bruno César before strikes from Renato and Lúcio Flávio put Botafogo in the driving seat.  In the final round before the break for the World Cup, Corinthians moved on to 17 points but stay leaders courtesy of a better goal difference than Ceará. The Série A new boys continued to surprise by pulling off a 1-0 win at Atlético Mineiro thanks to a goal from Washington.

Four wins in a row has lifted Fluminense to 3rd. On Saturday, goals from Leandro Euzébio, Fred and Alan ensured the 3-0 win away at Avaí.

Santos put four past an insipid Vasco in the Vila Belmiro. A brace from André Ribeiro and one a-piece from Maranhão and Madson did the damage.

A Roger penalty was the difference between Guaraní and Grêmio Prudente. The front man’s strike was his 6th of the season and he leads the goal-scoring charts.

Grêmio took the lead away at the Morumbi through São Paulo old boy, Hugo. But the tricolor Paulista bounced back with a Dagoberto hat trick to take all three points.

Atlético Paranaense, Atlético Mineiro, Vasco and Atlético Goianiense occupy the relegation places. But there’s hope for the latter after they managed their first win of the Brasileiro by beating Cruzeiro 2-1 in the Serra Dourada.

The Brasileiro is now on hold until July 14th.

    I need some help. I want to rap about futbol brasileiro in english, but I am sol. So I will take it out on this site. First, I feel that Defederico needs to play more for O Timão. He proved it yesterday w/ the equalizer @ ‘fogo. Secondly, I think Flu is coming around nicely. Then to top it off, they might sign Deco as well 😮 The season looks to be shaping up very nicely in Brasil.
