Brasileirão round-up: Figueirense fight back to draw with Fluminense
Brasileirão: Round 21
Figueirense 2-2 Fluminense
Basement boys Figueirense came from behind to secure a 2-2 draw with second-placed Fluminense at home.
Digäo header the visitors in front just seconds after the half time break, before former International striker Rafael Sobis made it 2-0 in the 52nd minute.
Figueirense, though, got themselves back into the game in the 67th minute through Aloisio's header, and just before the end, Joao Paulo's converted free kick ensured both sides shared the spoils.
Palmeiras 0-0 Grêmio
Third-placed Grêmio now trail league leaders Atlético Mineiro by just three points after playing out a goalless draw with Palmeiras at the Pacaembu.
The Tricolor Gaúcho had to play 72 minutes with ten men after Kleber received a second yellow card for appearing to elbow Henrique in the face.
Vasco 2-0 Portuguesa
After three straight defeats, Vasco got back to winning ways by beating Portuguesa 2-0 at São Januário.
Alecsandro headed the Cruz de Malta in front in the 36th minute, before Valdormiro unfortunately saw red for clashing heads with Brazil international Dedé.
Carlos Tenorio doubled Vasco's lead two minutes into the second half after being played through on goal by Juninho, but with just over ten minutes to go, the Carioca giants also found themselves down to ten men after Pipico received a straight red card for an untimely challenge on Gustavo.
Fortunately for Vasco, though, they managed to hold on to their two-goal lead and as a result, they now find themselves six points off first place.
