Adriano converted a penalty kick to help Flamengo beat Corinthians 1-0 in the first leg of the second round of the Libertadores Cup on Wednesday.

Ronaldo was booed constantly during the match plagued by heavy rains. The former World Player of the Year began his rehabilitation after his third knee surgery with Flamengo in 2008. After speculation that he would sign with Flamengo, he surprised everyone by signing with Corinthians.

The game's only goal came in the 65th minute when Adriano drove the ball into the lower right side of the net from the spot.

The return leg will take place at Corinthians on May 5.
