Corinthians, Palmeiras draw 3-3; Flamengo crush Fluminense 3-1

Dudu and Palmeiras were pegged back three times in a pulsating 3-3 draw with leaders Corinthians.

SAO PAULO -- Corinthians came from behind three times to draw with Palmeiras 3-3 in an intense clasico at Allianz Parque in Sao Paulo on Sunday.

The draw kept Corinthians on top of the Brazilian league with 50 points, five in front of Atletico Mineiro, while Gremio are six back, with Sao Paulo the next-best club, 12 off the lead.

Palmeiras, playing at home, got goals from Lucas, Robinho and Dudu. Vagner Love scored the equaliser in the 78th minute for Corinthians with Guilherme Arana also scoring. Palmeiras also contributed an own goal by Amaral.

"Playing away from home, it's important to get some points," Love said. "It was good we earned a point."

Meanwhile, there was another intense local derby a little further north being played in front of 55,000 raucous fans at the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro, where Flamengo trampled arch-rivals Fluminense 3-1 in the Fla-Flu derby game. Paulinho, Emerson and Kayke scored for Flamengo with Fluminense's only goal coming from Jean penalty kick.

Flamengo trail leaders Corinthians by 15 points, the same margin as Palmeiras, and have now won four straight, the best such return in Brazil.

In other results on Sunday it was: Cruzeiro 5-1 Figueirense; Chapecoense 0-0 Ponte Preta; Gremio 2-1 Goias; Avai 0-2 Coritiba; Sport 1-1 Santos.

Atletico Mineiro defeated last-placed Vasco da Gama on Saturday 2-1 to keep the pressure on Corinthians.

In other Saturday results, Sao Paulo downed Internacional 2-0 and Atletico-PR drew 0-0 with Joinville.
