Ronaldinho scores, keeps Atletico ahead in Brazil

Ronaldinho scored one goal and set up another as Atletico Mineiro drew 2-2 with rival Cruzeiro on Sunday to lead the Brazilian standings at the halfway point of the league.
Ronaldinho put Atletico ahead in the 84th minute before Cruzeiro equalized in injury time, but the draw was still enough to give Atletico a one-point lead over second place Fluminense, which edged Vasco da Gama 2-1 on Saturday.
Atletico Mineiro, which still has a game in hand, is unbeaten in 13 matches.
Also Sunday, former Brazil striker Luis Fabiano scored twice as Sao Paulo beat defending champion Corinthians 2-1, while Flamengo drew with rival Botafogo 0-0 in Rio de Janeiro.
On Saturday, Neymar scored twice to give Santos a 2-1 come-from-behind win over Palmeiras, leaving the Palmeiras in relegation zone.
