Soccer-Draw fails to dampen relegation fears for Fluminense, Ceara

RIO DE JANEIRO, Nov 19 (Reuters) - Fluminense and Ceara played out a 0-0 draw in the Rio rain on Monday, a result that did little to ease either club’s fears of relegation from Brazil’s Serie A.

Both teams were poor in a game that extended Fluminense’s winless run to five games and Ceara’s to four.

With three games left in the season, Ceara sit in 14th place in the 20-team league with 39 points, two above the relegation zone.

Fluminense are one spot and three points ahead of them. Four teams go down to Serie B with Parana Clube already condemned to the drop. (Reporting by Andrew Downie, editing by Nick Mulvenney)
