Fluminense looking to seal Brazilian league title
SAO PAULO (AP) -A draw on Sunday against relegation-threatened Palmeiras may be enough to give Fluminense its second Brazilian league title in three years.
Fluminense has a nine-point lead over Ronaldinho's Atletico Mineiro with four rounds left, and another point against Palmeiras will be enough if Atletico loses at Vasco da Gama. If Fluminense wins, Atletico will also need a victory to keep alive its hopes of its first league title since 1971.
Palmeiras needs at least a draw to retain any chance of remaining in the top flight next season. The club with the most Brazilian titles, Palmeiras is seven points from safety and players have been threatened by fans because of the team's struggles.
