SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Corinthians drew 1-1 at home with Flamengo on Sunday in another Brazilian league game in which the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) played a key role.

Flamengo took the lead on the hour when Clayson converted a penalty awarded after a long consultation with the VAR.

The home side equalised through Gabriel late on but only after a six-minute pause while officials reviewed the goal on the pitch-side monitor.

The result means that Flamengo remain third in Serie A five points behind joint leaders Palmeiras and Santos, while Corinthians, who have a game in hand, are eighth, a further five points distant.
