Sport Recife 2 – Vasco da Gama 2 (Campeonato Brasileiro, October 8, 2008) Vasco da Gama stayed in the relegation zone after a injury time goal denied them their first win in eight games. Leandro Amaral scored twice in a five-minute spell before halftime to put Vasco ahead after Kassio had opened the scoring for Sport, but a late opportunist goal from Ciro salvaged a draw for the hosts.

Gremio 2 – Santos 0 (Campeonato Brasileiro, October 8, 2008) Gremio regained the top spot in Brazil. Richard Morales opened the scoring in the second minute, and the hosts had to wait until injury time for the second, when Manchester United target Douglas Costa had a free-kick saved with Soares scoring from the rebound.
