S American round-up/Leagues

RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug 16 (Reuters) -

Alianza Lima won the first stage of the Peruvian championship with a 1-0 victory over Universitario, who had three players sent off on a chaotic weekend in the country that hosted last month's Copa America.

A photographer fell into a moat surrounding the pitch at the same match, while Cienciano's game at Alianza Atletico was abandoned after a linesman was injured by objects thrown from the crowd.

Millonarios, once one of the world's richest clubs, slumped to the bottom of the Colombian championship after crashing 3-0 at home to modest Atletico Huila.

PERU

Alianza Lima won the first stage of the championship with a game to spare but there was little for Peruvian football to celebrate.

Veteran Waldir Saenz scored the only goal in the 13th minute but the match degenerated into an ill-temperered affair peppered with bad challenges and heated exchanges.

Argentine Daniel Cicogna missed a 61st-minute penalty for Universitario whose frustration boiled over when Cicogna, former Coventry City striker Israel Zuniga and Jose Mendoza were sent off in the last 15 minutes.

The first two red cards followed a brawl and a photographer who came on to the field was injured when he fell into the ditch, media reports said. Play was held up for nearly 10 minutes before he was taken to hospital.

Universitario appeared to have learned nothing from an earlier match away to Cienciano when they had five players sent off.

Alianza Lima went eight points clear of Cienciano, who have one game to play plus the remainder of the game at Alianza Atletico which was abandoned.

Play was halted in first-half injury time when missiles rained down on one of the linesmen, who was taken to hospital with a gashed forehead. Cienciano were leading 3-1.

COLOMBIA

Millonarios, arguably the world's richest club during the Colombian pirate league of the 1950s, lie bottom of the Clausura championship after their latest fiasco.

Armando Carrillo scored a second-half hat-trick as Atletic Huila's 3-0 win left Millonarios, who have won a record 13 domestic titles, floundering at the foot of the table with one point from four games.

Tolima lead with a maximum 12 points after beating Santa Fe 2-1.

Leider Preciado put the visitors in front with a far post header after 25 minutes. Ricardo Ciciliano equalised in the 63rd minute and Ivan Velasquez scored the winner with a brilliant 30-metre strike two minutes later.

South American champions Once Caldas also came from behind as they moved up to seventh with a 2-1 win at Union Magdalena.

BOLIVIA

Oriente Petrolero striker Augusto Andavaris scored but was later sent off as his team were held 1-1 by Blooming in their Santa Cruz derby before a 25,000 crowd.

Blooming were on the ropes after Renny Ribero was sent off in the 21st minute and Andaveris scored 10 minutes later.

But Andaveris turned villain when he missed two easy chances to add to his tally and was dismissed for a bad tackle in the 81st minute. In between, Argentine Eduardo Iachetti equalised for the sky blues.

Bolivar and The Strongest also drew 1-1 in their La Paz derby. Veteran international defender Marco Sandy headed Bolivar in front after half an hour. Argentine Ignacio Brown equalised for the Tigers in the second half.

CHILE

Colo Colo's 100 percent record in the Clausura championship ended when they were held 2-2 at home by Cobreloa. But we/re still undefeated !!!

The visitors twice led through Jonathan Cisternas and Mauricio Dinamarca, with Juan Lorco and Marcelo Veron replying.

Defending champions Universidad de Chile crashed to a shock 2-0 defeat :dielaugh:at Puerto Montt where Alvaro Sarabia scored both goals.

ECUADOR

Barcelons stayed top of the championship's second stage despite being held to a goalless draw by Espoli.

El Nacional striker Evelio Ordonez scored his 16th goal of the tournament as the army club were held 1-1 by Deportivo Quito in their derby. Raul Guerron had put Deportivo ahead.

Gustavo Figueroa scored both goals, taking his tally to 14, as first stage winners Aucas won for only the second time in ten matches in the second stage, beating Emelec 2-0.

Three more coaches fall in Brazil



By Brian Homewood

RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug 17 (Reuters) - Three more coaches in the Brazilian championship have fallen since the weekend, all from clubs based in Rio de Janeiro.

Fluminense sacked Ricardo Gomes following Sunday's 1-1 draw at home to Paysandu on Sunday while Paulo Cesar Gusmao walked out on Flamengo and Mauro Galvao left Botafogo almost simultaneously on Monday.

Vasco da Gama were the only one of Rio de Janeiro's four first division clubs with a permanent coach on Tuesday as Flamengo announced that former midfielder Andrade would take over as caretaker for the second time this year.

The latest changes brought the number of coaching victims to 25 since the 24-team Brazilian championship started in late April.

Former Paris St Germain and Brazil defender Ricardo became the third coach to leave trouble-hit Fluminense this year after suffering the same fate as Renato Portaluppi and Valdir Espinosa.

Ricardo spent five months at the club, during which he struggled to maintain discipline over a squad which included so-called "bad boys" Romario and Edmundo.

Gusmao, who began the championship in charge of Cruzeiro, left relegation-threatened Flamengo in protest at constant interference in the team from outside the coaching staff.

He complained that "amateur" directors had gone into the changing room to take part in the halftime team talk during Saturday's 3-0 win over Gremio.

"I didn't imagine how much external factors would influence my work," he said.

Botafogo's Mauro Galvao, whose team are 23rd in the table, blamed a lack of reinforcements for his decision to leave and added the team had run out of luck.

"Football is about results," he told reporters. "We played some good games, we managed to improve in some areas but, at a given moment, things stopped happening."

In typical style, Gusmao was listed among the leading candidates to replace Ricardo at Fluminense and Ricardo was on the shortlist to take over from Gusmao at Flamengo.

Botafogo stun Santos to give Bonamigo dream start



RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug 19 (Reuters) - Lowly Botafogo beat Santos 2-0 on Wednesday to give new coach Paulo Bonamigo a winning debut and knock their opponents off the top of the Brazilian championship.

Palmeiras took over from Santos after beating Internacional 3-1, their fourth win in a row.

Bonamigo became Botafogo's third coach this year were he was appointed late on Tuesday to replace Mauro Galvao, who resigned the day before.


Second-half goals from defender Joao Carlos and fullback Jorginho Paulista gave him a perfect start, although his team are still 21st in the 24-team table and remain in the relegation zone.

Santos have 44 points from 25 games, two less than Palmeiras who were promoted from the second division last year.

First-half goals from Baiano and Thiago Gentil put Palmeiras in control before new signing Osmar scored after the break, his fourth goal in three games since joining from second division Santo Andre.

Goias striker Alex Dias, the championship's top-scorer, took his tally to 16 as he scored in the 3-1 win away to defending champions Cruzeiro, who slumped to 13th.

Flamengo, Brazil's most popular club, dropped back into the relegation places when they lost 1-0 at Ponte Preta.

Ecuador's Liga de Quito name Oblitas as coach



QUITO, Aug 23 (Reuters) - Ecuadorean champions Liga de Quito have named former Peru striker and coach Juan Carlos Oblitas as their new manager, the Ecuadorean Football Federation (FEF) official website said on Monday.

Oblitas replaces Uruguayan Daniel Carreno, who was sacked last week, and becomes the club's third coach this year.

Carreno had taken over in April when his compatriot Jorge Fossati left to take charge of Uruguay.

Oblitas played for Peru in the 1978 World Cup and coached his country's national side at the Copa America in 1999.

He returned to coaching this year at Peruvian first division club Deportivo San Martin but resigned after a poor start to the season and has since worked as a television commentator.

Pua resigns after two games at Central


BUENOS AIRES, Aug 24 (Reuters) - Uruguayan Victor Pua has become the first coaching victim of the Argentine championship, resigning from Rosario Central just two games into the competition.
Club president Pablo Scarabino, who confirmed Pua's departure in a radio interview, said 76-year-old Angel Zof, who has coached the team several times in the past, was favourite to take over.


'The only name that Central has in mind is Zof,' he added.

Zof works in the club's junior divisions.

Pua quit on Monday after his team were beaten 1-0 at home by arch-rivals Newell's Old Boys the day before.

Pua, who coached Uruguay at the 2002 World Cup, has an excellent reputation in his homeland for discovering and developing young talent.

He arrived at Central with ambitious plans but the Argentine media said these were scuppered when investors who would have backed his project fell out with the club.

Pua had planned to sign Uruguayan striker Sebastian Abreu, Colombian international forward Tressor Moreno, goalkeeper Sebastian Saja and former Racing Club midfielder Jose Chatruc but all fell through.

Central, whose Gigante de Arroyo stadium was used as a venue in the 1978 World Cup, have lost their opening two games in the Apertura championship and are bottom of the table.

Two-goal Robinho puts Santos on top


RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug 22 (Reuters) - Robinho scored twice as Santos thrashed Figueirense 4-1 to go back to the top of the Brazilian championship on Sunday.
The 20-year-old forward, who is living up to his billing as one of Brazil's most exciting players, lashed home their second goal in the 19th minute and flicked in their last midway through the second half.


Robinho took his tally to 15 and also set up the third goal for striking partner Deivid after Elano had set the Fish on their way to victory with a seventh-minute opener.

Izaias replied for Figueirense.

The match was played in Mogi Mirim as Santos served a one-match home ban for crowd trouble at an earlier game.

Santos, champions in 2002 and runners-up last year, lead the standings on the number of games won from Palmeiras, who scored twice in the last eight minutes in a 2-2 draw at Vitoria.

Both have 47 points from 26 games.

Vitoria, with Helio dos Anjos taking over as their third coach of the championship, raced to a 2-0 halftime lead with goals by Cameta and Allan Delon.

Thiago Gentil pulled one back in the 84th minute before Osmar grabbed an injury-time equaliser, his fifth in four games since joining them from second-division Santo Andre.

Goias striker Alex Dias, the championship's top scorer, took his total to 19 by hammering a hat-trick in the 5-0 win over Ponte Preta, who had five players suspended after a rash of yellow cards in previous games.

The weekend produced one of the best goals of the championship when Internacional striker Fernandao controlled the ball on his chest with his back to goal and then scored from a overhead kick in the 20th minute of their game against Coritiba.

However, the visitors snatched a point with Adriano scored early in the second half.

Fluminense, still without a coach after firing former Paris St Germain and Brazil defender Ricardo Gomes last Sunday, beat Sao Paulo 1-0 after Fabao put through his own net in the third minute.

Flamengo, who named Gomes as their coach on Friday to replace Paulo Cesar Gusmao, beat Parana 2-1 in their relegation dogfight.

Troubled Independiente crash again


BUENOS AIRES, Aug 24 (Reuters) - Independiente's unhappy August continued with a 4-2 defeat at Lanus in the Argentine Apertura championship on Tuesday.
Daniel Tilger scored twice as Lanus came from behind in a superb, action-packed match to leave Independiente, record seven times South American champions, with only three points from three matches.


Independiente coach Pato Pastoriza died suddenly of a heart attack at the beginning of the month, with the inexperienced Daniel Bertoni stepping into his shoes.

The team began the Apertura two weeks ago with a 1-0 defeat at Quilmes but followed up with a 3-0 home win over promoted Almagro.

Then Argentine international Matias Almeyda last week asked to rescind his contract so he could leave the country and return to Italy with his family after alleged kidnapping threats.

Independiente can draw heart, however, from their part in Tuesday's match which could have gone either way.

Santos blow three-goal lead against 10-man Cruzeiro



By Brian Homewood

RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug 29 (Reuters) -

Brazilian championship leaders Santos were held to a 4-4 draw by Cruzeiro on Sunday, blowing a three-goal lead against opponents who played more than half the game with 10 men.

Santos looked certain to give coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo, who led Cruzeiro to the title last year, a winning return to his old club as they led 4-1 with 25 minutes left.


Twenty-year-old striker Robinho scored twice in the first 20 minutes to give the visitors a flying start.

Cruzeiro, who are 10th in the table, reduced the arrears on the half hour when Cristiano Avalos put through his own net. The fightback was interrupted however when midfielder Martinez was dismissed for a second bookable offence in the 40th minute.

Santos were coasting after former Cruzeiro striker Deivid and midfielder Elano made it 4-1 with two goals in six minutes. But Fred, Jussie and Wendel replied to give the home side an unlikely point.

Santos, Atletico Paranaense and Juventude all have 48 points from 27 matches but Luxemburgo's team lead the table by virtue of having won more games.

Atletico scored two late goals to come from behind and beat local rivals Coritiba 2-1.

Fernandinho tapped in a rebound in the 80th minute after Rogerio Correa headed against the crossbar and striker Washington claimed the winner with his 15th goal of the championship.

Alemao had put 11th-placed Coritiba ahead early in the second half.

Juventude won 2-1 at bottom club Parana.

Seventeen-year-old striker Jo headed the winner as Corinthians edged Palmeiras 1-0 in their Sao Paulo derby while leading scorer Alex Dias grabbed his 20th goal of the competition to earn Goias a 1-1 draw at Gremio.

Former Brazil striker Viola, who played in the 1994 World Cup final against Italy, scored a last-gasp goal to give Guarani a 3-3 draw at Sao Paulo.

Guarani went 2-0 up before Sao Paulo scored three times in eight minutes before halftime.

Viola stroked home a penalty in the fourth minute of second-half injury time as Sao Paulo, famous for conceding late goals, dropped two more precious points and stayed seventh.

Maradona watches Boca Juniors go top in Argentina



By Luis Ampuero

BUENOS AIRES, Aug 29 (Reuters) - Diego Maradona returned to his beloved Bombonera stadium to watch Boca Juniors beat Racing Club 2-1 to go level with Velez Sarsfield and River Plate at the top of the Argentine championship on Sunday.

The former Argentina captain, a fanatical Boca fan who has his own private VIP box at the ground, was back for the first time since April 18 when he was rushed into intensive care with a swollen heart and breathing problems after watching a game.


Maradona, who has been confined to a psychiatric clinic on the outskirts of Buenos Aires for the last three months, is fighting to obtain a judge's permission to leave Argentina and resume treatment for cocaine addiction in Cuba.

Striker Martin Palermo, back with the club after three years in Spain, scored both goals as Boca ended Racing's 100 percent record in the Apertura championship.

Palermo, who played in Spain for Villarreal and Alaves, fired Boca in front with a left-foot shot after five minutes and headed the winner on the hour.

In between, Lisandro Lopez equalised for Racing with his fourth goal in three games.

GOAL DIFFERENCE

Boca have 10 points from four games and are joint top with Velez Sarsfield, who have an identical goal difference after their 2-1 win over Lanus.

River Plate, who picked up a 2-0 victory at Instituto, are also on 10 points but have an inferior goal difference.

Promoted Argentinos Juniors were left bottom with no points from four matches after crashing to a 1-0 home defeat against Estudiantes.

Angry fans demanded the resignation of Argentinos Juniors coach Sergio Batista.

San Lorenzo, with Hector Veira back as coach, twice came from behind to draw 2-2 at Independiente.

Nestor Gorosito quit San Lorenzo two games into the Apertura and was replaced by Veira, one of the few men to have coached both River Plate and Boca Juniors.

Veira led San Lorenzo to the Clausura championship in 1995.

South America round-up



By Brian Homewood

RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug 30 (Reuters) - Uruguay finally managed to complete the qualifying stage of their championship at the weekend, the final round of matches going ahead after a two-month stoppage caused by a players' strike.

Once-mighty Millonarios remained rooted to the bottom of the Colombian championship without a point after losing their sixth consecutive game.


URUGUAY

After a two-month delay triggered by a players' strike over a demand for better wages in the second division, the final round of the championship's qualifying stage went ahead at the weekend.

Rentistas, Fenix and Wanderers joined five other sides to advance to the tournament proper, despite not winning their last qualifying matches.

Rentistas drew 1-1 at Rocha, Wanderers played out a goalless draw with Danubio and Fenix lost 2-1 at Plaza Colonia.

The trio join already-qualified Danubio, Nacional, Penarol, Cerrito and Liverpool in the championship proper, which will now be crammed into four months.

Meanwhile, Defensor Sporting and Cerro, the next best two Montevideo teams, and Plaza Colonia and Deportivo Colonia, the next best two provincial sides, will play off for the last two spots.

Teams who miss out on the championship will take part in the Permanencia tournament in a bid to avoid relegation.

In the weekend's main match, Nacional crashed 3-2 at home to Liverpool as coach Hugo de Leon began his second stint in charge.

The former Uruguay defender took charge after a long row over whether he is properly qualified to work as a coach.

Alexander Medina, Nacional's top scorer with 15 goals, scored one goal but missed a penalty.

COLOMBIA

Millonarios, once one of the world's richest teams but now deep in a financial crisis, continued their miserable run with a 1-0 loss at home to Atletico Junior.

Substitute Ivan Lopez headed into his own net with eight minutes to go.

"I apologise to the supporters, my team mates and the coaching staff for what happened," said a dejected Lopez. "It was an accident."

Pereira coach Nestor Otero resigned minutes after his team were beaten 1-0 at home by Chico. Otero was insulted by supporters and given a police escort off the field.

Leaders Tolima made it six wins out of six as they hammered Quindio 3-0.

They got off to a fast start with Oscar Passo opening the scoring after 55 seconds. Second-half goals from Ivan Velasquez and substitute John Charria, who broke down the right and found the net with a rasping drive, completed the scoring.

South American champions Once Caldas continued their indifferent start with a 2-0 loss at Deportivo Cali, where Norberto Peluffo was named coach last week.

Erwin Carillo headed the first goal amid suspicions of offside and Hernando Patino added the second in injury time. Cali are 12th and Caldas 10th.

PARAGUAY

Cerro Porteno lead the Clausura championship with 10 points from four games after a 1-0 win over Sol de America. Midfielder Julio dos Santos scored the winner direct from a free kick in the 69th minute.

Nacional thumped hapless Guarani 7-0, with Oscar Cardozo and Carlos Gonzalez scoring twice. Luis Monzon, Fabio Escobar and Marcos Morinigo shared the other goals.

BOLIVIA

San Jose and Wilstermann stayed top of their respective groups in the Clausura championship, despite losing at home. San Jose went down 2-1 to Iberoamericana in Oruro while Wilstermann were beaten 3-2 by Blooming.

CHILE

Defending champions Universidad de Chile were held to a goalless draw at Everton, where Jorge Garces was making his debut as coach.

Universidad Catolica's impressive run continued as they won 2-1 at Huachipato.

Three Brazilian coaches lose jobs in one day



RIO DE JANEIRO, Sept 2 (Reuters) -

Three coaches lost their jobs in Brazil on Thursday after their teams were beaten in the Brazilian championship the previous night.

Joel Santana was fired by Internacional after a 3-1 defeat by Fluminense, Cricuma's Vagner Benazzi was dismissed after a 4-0 home defeat loss to Sao Caetano and Cuca left Sao Paulo following their 3-2 defeat by Coritiba.

A total of 29 coaches have now their jobs since the competition started at the end of April and, with 17 rounds of matches still to play before December, the total looks set to pass the half century mark.

Santana, who was sacked by Guarani just five games into the competition, become the third coach to leave Internacional since the start of the championship.

He had been living under an almost constant threat of dismissal throughout his short reign, which lasted less than two months.

The Porto Alegre club, who are 15th in the table, named Muricy Ramalho, who himself left the club in January, as his replacement.

Both Criciuma, who are 14th, and seventh-place Sao Paulo changed coaches for the first time in the competition.

Cuca had been wobbling ever since Sao Paulo fell at the semi-final stages of the Libertadores Cup, the South American equivalent of the Champions League, in June.

Wednesday's defeat, which followed a 3-3 home draw with lowly Guarani the previous weekend, was the final straw.

Late Ricardinho strike keeps Santos top in Brazil

RIO DE JANEIRO, Sept 2 (Reuters) -

Ricardinho scored a superb late winner as Santos beat Juventude 2-1 to stay top of the Brazilian championship.

Ricardinho, who returned to Brazil in June after six unhappy months at English Premier League club Middlesbrough, saw goalkeeper Eduardo Martini off his line and lobbed the ball in off the crossbar in the 88th minute of Wednesday night's game.

Midfielder Elano had given Santos an early lead but Naldo equalised before halftime with a free kick which caught Santos 'keeper Mauro off his guard. Where is TAPIA ???

Santos went three points clear of Atletico Paranaense, who are playing later on Thursday.

Juventude and Palmeiras, who earned a point from a goalless draw at Ponte Preta, also have 48 points.

Bottom club Parana won 4-1 at defending champions Cruzeiro as coach Paulo Campos took charge of the team for the second time in the championship and just three months after resigning.

Campos replaced Gilson Kleiner who had resigned after 16 games at the helm.

Cruzeiro had fought back from 4-1 down at home to Santos to draw 4-4 on Sunday but there was no way back this time.

Midfielder Cristian and striker Maranhao gave Parana a 2-0 halftime lead. Striker Galvao and substitute Marcel added further goals for Parana in the second half, played against a background of constant jeering from the Cruzeiro supporters.

The supporters even continued jeering when Guillerme scored Cruzeiro's consolation as they slumped to 13th in the table.

Santos stay top in Brazil


RIO DE JANEIRO, Sept 8 (Reuters) - Santos were held 1-1 at home by Atletico Paranaense on Wednesday as the Brazilian championship's top two teams met only hours after the national side was in action in Germany.
The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF), which has already been criticised this year for holding full rounds of matches on international dates, was again under fire as the gloss was taken off the leadership battle.


Santos were minus winger Robinho, in Berlin for Brazil's 1-1 friendly draw with Germany, and only 8,075 fans watched the match against Atletico.

'Only Brazil would take part in a World Cup final revenge match and, on the same day, have a duel between the leaders of the national championship,' said the sports daily Lance. 'What a mess.'

Atletico went ahead when defender Marinho scored from close range but striker Basilio equalised almost immediately.

Both teams have 52 points from 29 games but Santos lead by virtue of having won more games.

Elsewhere, three coaches made their debuts with new clubs including former Brazil supremo Emerson Leao.

Leao, who started the championship with Santos before having a short, tumultuous spell with title holders Cruzeiro, got off to a winning start with Sao Paulo, who won 2-0 at relegation-threatened Parana.

'Was it pretty? No. Was it a good game? No. But it was excellent because we got three points away from home,' said the former Brazil goalkeeper.

Rodrigo finished off a counter attack to open the scoring after 12 minutes and Danilo added the second with a deflected shot early in the second half as Sao Paulo moved back up to fifth place.

Internacional, where Muricy Ramalho returned only eight months after resigning as coach, were held to a goalless draw at home by Flamengo.

Criciuma, where Lori Sandri replaced Vagner Benazzi as coach, were beaten 2-1 at Goias, who rose to third place, three points behind the leading pair.

Gremio coach resigns after another defeat



RIO DE JANEIRO, Sept 10 (Reuters) - Gremio coach Jose Luiz Plein has resigned following Thursday night's 2-1 defeat against fellow strugglers Botafogo to become the Brazilian championship's 31st coaching victim.

Plein, who was in charge for 19 matches after taking over in June, told reporters he was resigning immediately after his side completed their eighth game without a win.

"I'm not managing to mobilise the group any more," he said. "I've tried banging on the table, kicking on the door and being educated...but I can't get them to react.

"I apologise to Gremio's supporters. It's time to leave."

Gremio, twice South American champions and the club where Brazil's 2002 World Cup-winning coach Luiz Felipe Scolari made his name, are 22nd in the 24-team championship and facing another fight against the drop. The bottom four teams go down.

The Porto Alegre club, where Barcelona striker Ronaldinho was raised, narrowly escaped relegation last year.

Only five of the teams in the championship have managed to avoid coaching changes in the 29 rounds of matches so far. Botafogo, Guarani and Internacional have all had three changes.

Four coaches have lost their jobs in September alone.

Santos stay top after derby victory

Brian Homewood

RIO DE JANEIRO, Sept 12 (Reuters) - Santos stayed top of the Brazilian championship after scoring twice in five minutes to beat arch-rivals Palmeiras 2-1 on Sunday.
Pele's former club Santos avenged a 4-0 home defeat by the same opponents earlier in the season with goals by striker Deivid and midfielder Elano before halftime.


Striker Osmar pulled one back for hosts Palmeiras late in the second half.

'We went to sleep for five minutes and paid the price,' Palmeiras coach Estevem Soares told reporters.

Santos, champions in 2002, are level on 55 points with Atletico Paranaense but lead on the number of games won.

Atletico, title winners three years ago, defeated Corinthians 3-1 on a nightmare afternoon for defender Valdson.

The Corinthians player opened the scoring for Atletico with a spectacular headed own goal early in the second half and gave away an injury-time penalty with a rugby tackle on Washington.

Washington, who returned to Brazil this year after an unhappy spell in Turkey with Fenerbahce, stroked home the penalty for his 17th goal of the championship.

In between, midfielder Renato headed an equaliser for Corinthians before Jadson curled a free kick in off the post to put Atletico back in front.

ANIMAL SCORES

Volatile striker Edmundo, making a rare appearance for Fluminense, grabbed a late winner as they beat Flamengo 2-1 in the Fla-Flu derby in Rio de Janeiro.

'I didn't play well but I'll get all the credit after scoring,' said the injury-hit former Brazil striker known as the Animal.

Edmundo's goal came three minutes after Henrique had equalised for Flamengo, whose coach Ricardo Gomes was facing the club that fired him less than one month ago.

Former Brazil striker Viola, who played in the 1994 World Cup final against Italy, scored twice as bottom club Guarani overcame Juventude 3-1 while next-to-bottom Gremio were held 1-1 at home by Paysandu in their first game under new coach Cuca.

Cuca, who began the season at Sao Paulo, took over after Jose Luiz Plein walked out on Gremio on Thursday to become the 31st coaching victim of the championship.

Gremio, who were reduced to 10 men when midfielder Arilson was sent off in the 42nd minute for a violent tackle, fell behind to a Jobson goal early in the second half.

But Claudio Pitbull salvaged a point against the odds with a 74th-minute equaliser.
