Mineiro stayed top of the Brazilian championship on Sunday with
a 3-2 win over a Botafogo side featuring his former AC Milan
Ditch team mate Clarence Seedorf.
Both teams scored in a five-minute spell before half-time
when Andrezinho gave Botafogo the lead before Damian Escudero
replied for Mineiro, scoring from a rebound at the end of a move
started by Ronaldinho.
Ronaldinho was involved again as the Roosters took the lead
after the break, laying the ball into the path of former
Manchester City and Everton striker Jo to make it 2-1, only for
Andrezinho to level from a penalty with 10 minutes to go.
Neto Berola struck the winner with two minutes left to leave
his side three points clear of Fluminense, who won 1-0 at home
to Sport Recife.
Former CSKA Moscow forward Vagner Love scored the only goal
to give Flamengo victory over arch-rivals Vasco da Gama,
although they should have added another in the second half when
Leo Moura somehow missed an open goal from six metres.
Santos won their second game in four days since the return
of Neymar from the Olympic Games, coming from behind to beat
South American champions Corinthians 3-2.
Corinthians coach Tite was furious with the referee claiming
that Andre Felipe's goal to put Santos 2-1 ahead should have
been disallowed for offside.
Luiz Felipe Scolari's problems continued as the former
Brazil and Portugal coach's Palmeiras side lost 2-1 at Atletico
Goianiense to drop back into the relegation zone.
