Palmeiras rallied to defeat leader Corinthians 2-1 in the Brazilian league on Sunday, a match marked by fan violence that left two men shot.
The weekend round also was marked by a stroke suffered by Vasco da Gama coach Ricardo Gomes in his team's 0-0 draw with Ronaldinho's Flamengo. Gomes was in serious condition in an intensive care unit and was not breathing fully on his own.
Sao Paulo drew 1-1 with Santos despite playing a man down for most of the match in Santos, after midfielder Carlinhos Paraiba received his second yellow card in the 27th minute. Young Sao Paulo playmaker Lucas and talented Santos midfielder Paulo Henrique Ganso each scored.
