Brasileirão week 32 round-up: Big win for Vasco as in-form Goiás maintain top four push
Goiás are just one point adrift of Botafogo after beating the Fogão 1-0.
Eduardo Sasha’s 90th minute strike has brought Enderson Moreira’s side within touching distance of a Copa Libertadores berth. It was a sixth win in a row.
It is a remarkable effort from a team that was in the Brasileirão Série B last season.
Atlético Paranaense, who came up with Goiás, are just about keeping in touch with leaders Cruzeiro. Dellatore’s sole effort was enough to see-off Internacional.
It will, however, be Cruzeiro’s Brasileirão - a first since 2003. They won again this week, 1-0 at Santos. Their lead is 12 points, with just 18 left to play for.
At the other end, Vasco da Gama secured a vital victory against Coritiba. Veteran forward Edmilson netted a brace in a 2-1 win. They are now level on points with Fluminense. Vanderlei Luxemburgo’s side lost 1-0 at Flamengo. Defender Gum scored a last minute own goal.
Elsewhere, Atlético Mineiro hit five past Náutico, who are relegated. Criciúma’s 1-1 at home to Ponte Preta leaves both still in the bottom four, while Grêmio are now three games without a win, after a stalemate with Bahia.
