Flamengo extend winning streak in Brazil's Serie A
Alecsandro converted a late penalty to hand Flamengo a 2-1 victory over Vitoria in Brazil's Serie A championship.
The veteran striker coolly netted from the spot after Juan handled Gabriel's goal-bound effort at the Barradao stadium Sunday, reports Xinhua.
Marcelo had given the visitors the lead in the 33rd minute before Caio equalised just before halftime.
Flamengo have now won five consecutive matches, rising to ninth in the standings after appearing to face a battle for top-flight survival earlier in the season.
In other matches Sunday, Gremio beat Bahia 1-0, Goias defeated Atletico Paranaense 3-1, Sport overcame Criciuma 2-0, Sao Paulo drew 0-0 at Figueirense, Atletico Mineiro held Coritiba 0-0, Botafogo eclipsed Santos 1-0 and Fluminense drew 1-1 at Corinthians.
