Rogerio misses penalty as Sao Paulo held at home

RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug 31 (Reuters) - Brazilian championship leaders Sao Paulo had to settle for a 1-1 draw at home with lowly Fortaleza on Thursday after goalkeeper Rogerio Ceni missed an injury-time penalty.

The usually dependable Rogerio, who has scored 64 goals from penalties and free kicks during his career, saw his shot saved by opposite number Alberico in the third extra minute.

A dramatic finale saw Rinaldo give Fortaleza an 86th minute lead with a diving header, only for Lenilson to equalise three minutes later when he hooked home Danilo's chipped cross.

Sao Paulo dominated the game and Rogerio had four attempts to score from free kicks -- one flying wide, two saved by Alberico and one hitting the post.

The penalty award for a foul on midfielder Mineiro brought furious protests from the Fortaleza players, who surrounded the referee pointing their fingers at the official.

Sao Paulo, who have 39 points from 20 games, went four points clear of Santos and Gremio and five ahead of South American champions Internacional who all played Wednesday.

Fortaleza stayed 19th in the 20-team table with 21 points.

Fifth-placed Vasco da Gama were held 2-2 by struggling Ponte Preta while Botafogo thrashed Parana 4-0 in the night's other games.

Striker Lima, on loan from Sao Paulo, scored twice in two minutes on his debut to give Botafogo a 2-0 halftime lead at the Maracana. Reinaldo and Ze Roberto added two more in the second half.
