Atletico Mineiro moved three points clear at the top of the Brazilian Campeonato standings on Sunday thanks to a 1-0 home win over Vasco da Gama.

Jo netted the game's only goal 20 minutes from the end to lift the leaders four points ahead of their opponents, who slipped to third spot following Fluminense's 1-0 triumph over fourth-bottom Palmeiras.

Jean's 85th-minute strike proved decisive for the Rio de Janeiro club, putting them second in the table - although both they and Vasco have played a game more than Atletico.

Fourth-placed Gremio left it late to claim a 2-1 come-from-behind victory at Sao Paulo, Andre Lima grabbing a last-minute winner after Werley had cancelled out Cicero's opener.

Mike also netted in the final minute as fifth-placed Internacional fought from a goal down to defeat Ponte Preta 2-1, Cicinho having put the away team ahead five minutes before the interval only for Jaja to restore parity on the hour.

Romarinho's last-gasp winner completed a dramatic 2-1 win for Corinthians at Coritiba. Everton had put the hosts ahead on the stroke of half-time but Paulinho equalised midway through the second half before Romarinho had the final word.

Finally, Bruno Mineiro's 39th-minute equaliser earned Portuguesa a 1-1 home draw against Botafogo, who had taken a 19th-minute lead through Elkeson.
