Figueirense fight back, victory for Vasco
Figueirense are one point adrift at the foot of the table, while Fluminense are level on points and goal difference with leaders Atletico Mineiro, albeit having played two games more.
Elsewhere, Vasco da Gama beat Portuguesa 2-0 in a game which saw both sides finish with ten men. Felisbino Alecsandro put Vasco da Gama in front on 37 minutes and the visitors then had Valdomiro sent off just three minutes later.
Carlos Tenorio doubled the home side's lead just after half-time and the dismissal of Henrique Pipico ten minutes from the end had no effect on the outcome.
