A last-minute leveller from Elton earned Vasco da Gama a 1-1 draw against Bahia in the Campeonato Brasileiro.

Bahia was ahead in the fourth minute thanks to Reinaldo's strike, and that looked like being the winner until a hectic last minute which saw Elton score despite Marcio Careca's red card.

Marcelo Nicacio scored twice in the last eight minutes as Ceara came from a goal down to beat bottom side Atletico Paranaense 2-1.

The visitor led through Madson's 15th-minute effort until Nicacio's late intervention.
