Flamengo just lost on the road against one of the toppers, Atletico-MG. The former tried to claw their way back into the game after going down a goal in the 28th minute.
And the effort was successful within three minutes. But the top-tier side showed its mettle in scoring the winner and holding on to the lead till the end, despite persistent efforts by the guests.
Paranaense, meanwhile, lost in spite of their home advantage, and that too, to a mid-level squad.
Right away the hosts were put under pressure and saw them conceding. Throughout the game, the hosts looked for the equalizer but had to deal with another goal in the dying stages of the game.
