PORTO ALEGRE, Brazil (Reuters) - Palmeiras missed a chance to put pressure on Brazil Serie A leaders Flamengo on Sunday when they could only draw 1-1 away to Internacional in Porto Alegre.
Patrick headed home an opener for the home side 27 minutes into the match but Willian volleyed an equaliser for second-placed Palmeiras 13 minutes into the second half.
The result leaves Palmeiras three points behind Flamengo, while Inter fall a place to fifth as Corinthians, who beat Vasco da Gama earlier on Sunday, leapfrogged them into fourth.
Santos are five points behind Palmeiras in third after beating CSA 2-0.
