On the road against Internacional, leader Fluminense could not get past keeper Ricardo Berna, leading to a scoreless draw on Wednesday in the 33rd round of the Brazilian Championship.

Internacional's defense allowed Fluminense to do as they pleased on offense. However, the heroic efforts of goalie Ricardo Berna kept Fluminense from scoring. On multiple occasions, the keeper surprised athletes and spectators with his ability to defend what would usually be a certain goal.

The result keeps Fluminense in first place with 58 points. However, Cruzeiro stands to surpass the team from Rio de Janeiro with a win over Sao Paulo on Wednesday night. In the 34th round of the tournament, Fluminense will face cross-town rival Vasco da Gama on November 7.

Internacional laments the result as they remain in sixth place with 50 points, unable to take advantage of a Santos draw that would have propelled them into fifth place. In the next round of action, the team will travel to play Goias on November 7.
