Ronaldo at the double for Corinthians in the Copa do Brasil; Gremio produce the Maxi-mum at San Martin

Deportivo San Martin 1 – Gremio 3 (Copa Libertadores, May 6, 2009) (Longer highlights here.) Gremio opened the scoring in the 9th minute when Souza won the ball on the edge of the box and fired a left-footed shot past the keeper. Martin Arzuaga equalised for San Martin in the 34th minute, cutting inside his marker before finishing past goalkeeper Victor. Gremio took control after the break, Maxi Lopez restored their leas with a glancing header from Souza’s cross less than 30 seconds after the break, and Lopez again found space in the box to seal the win after a center from Jonas.


Corinthians 2 – Atletico Paranaense 0 (Copa do Brasil, May 6, 2009) (Longer highlights here.) Ronaldo continued his revival grabbing both goals. The first was a low shot into the corner, before the chunky striker won a penalty with a slick piece of skill, Ronaldo himself stepping up to convert the spot-kick.
