A win for Fluminense away at Vitória, coupled with a loss for Corinthians at Internacional, lifted Muricy Ramalho’s side back to the top of the Brasileiro.

After Flu’s 2-1 victory in Bahia and Corinthians dramatic 3-2 loss in Porto Alegre, the situation at the top has left the Rio team on 48 one more than their rivals who have a game in hand.

See the Flu highlights. See the Inter vs Corinthians highlights.

An in-form Neymar was the inspiration for Santos’ 4-1 demolition job of Cruzeiro at the Arena Barueri. The goal of the game, though, came from leftback Alex Sandro. Despite the loss, Cruzeiro stay 3rd on 44 points. See the highlights.

Botafogo’s challenge on the title seems to be slipping away after they dropped to 6th following a 1-1 draw with Atlético Paranaense.

The situation at the bottom is becoming a little more interesting after Flamengo’s 3-1 loss at home to Palmeiras. The current league champions are just one place and two points clear of the drop zone. No team that has won a Brasileiro has been relegated the following season but the Rubro Negros could be in for a rough ride. Midweek they have a crucial match against a Goiás team that stunned São Paulo with a 3-0 win in the Morumbi.

Dorival Júnior’s first game in charge ended in tears after Atlético Mineiro lost at home 2-1 to Grêmio. Júnior took control late on Saturday and a wiser approach would have been to sit in the stands and observe Sunday’s match. Without any time to prepare Atlético, it came as no surprise when his new charges lost their 16th game of the season 24 hours later.
