6. BRAZIL: Sao Paulo clinches fourth national title
Sao Paulo clinched its fourth Brazilian championship with two games to
spare despite having to settle for a 1-1 tie at home against Atletico
Paranaense on Sunday.
Sao Paulo is eight points ahead of second-place Internacional with two
games to play after Internacional lost, 1-0, at Parana. Rains delayed
the Parana-Internacional game, so Sao Paulo players and their 68,000
fans at the Morumbi had to wait 15 minutes after their game before they
could celebrate a third title in the last two years. Sao Paulo won the
2005 Libertadores Cup and 2005 Club World Championship.
It matched Corinthians, Palmeiras and Flamengo for the most other
national championships with four. Its other titles came in 1977, 1986
