Brasileiro Championship - Fluminense v Corinthians

RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Fluminense came back from 1-0 down with 10 men to rescue a 1-1 draw at home with Corinthians on Sunday.

Former Brazil striker Jo converted a spot kick with 37 minutes gone for the visitors to give them a first-half lead.

Fluminense had Abel Hernandez sent off for a stamp within six minutes of the restart, but they kept fighting and equalised through a Juan Cazares header with 70 minutes on the clock.

The result leaves both teams in mid-table, with Fluminense in eighth place in the 20-team Serie A, one point and two places ahead of Corinthians.
