Felipão and his assistant Murtosa fail to get the start they wanted

Luis Felipe Scolari’s first game back in charge at Palmeiras ended in defeat after his side went down 4-2 away at Avaí. The Greens got off to a perfect start after taking an early lead in the estádio Ressacada in Florianópolis. But Palmeiras were not able to hold on. Avaí had Pará sent off at the end of the first-half. But despite this, the São Paulo side could not take advantage and ended up losing all three points. Palmeiras have recently sold their top playmakers – Diego Souza and Cleiton Xavier – and Felipão’s first job will be finding replacements for these two influential midfielders. See the highlights here.

Corinthians went three points clear at the top after a 1-0 win over Atlético Mineiro in the Pacaembu. Bruno César hit the decisive goal late into the second-half.  See the goal.

Corinthians are now the league’s only unbeaten team after Ceará crashed 2-1 away at Internacional.  See the goals.

Santos went down 1-0 in the Vila Belmiro against Fluminense. Alan’s goal was enough to secure Flu the points and move them into 2nd place. See the highlights

Gilberto’s 10th minute strike for Cruzeiro gave them the points against Goiás. Cruzeiro move to 4th.

Flamengo had Petkovic to thanks for all the points at Atlético Goianiense. The Goiânia side remain rock bottom and having gone directly from Série C to the top flight have now hit a wall.

São Paulo have lost both games since the league restarted. After going down at home to Avaí midweek, the Morumbi club crashed 3-2 away to Vitória in a very entertaining match in the Barradão. See the goals.

At the bottom, Atlético Mineiro, Vasco, Atlético Paranaense and Atlético Goianiense occupy the relegation places.
