Soccer-Gremio throw away lead to Corinthians as relegation looms

Brasileiro Championship - Corinthinas v Gremio

SAO PAULO (Reuters) – Gremio looked set to be relegated from Brazil’s Serie A after they drew 1-1 with Corinthians on Sunday.

Diego Souza got the opener for Gremio after 39 minutes but Renato Augusto equalised for Corinthians four minutes from the final whistle.

The result means that Gremio ended the day third from bottom of the 20-team table on 40 points, three behind the three clubs above them. Two of the three, Juventude and Cuiaba, have a game in hand on Monday.

Gremio now need to win their last game on Thursday, against league champions Atletico Mineiro, and hope all three of their rivals trip up.

Sport and Chapecoense are already down.
