The 1977 Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, (officially the III Copa Brasil) was the 21st edition of the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A.

Overview[edit]

It was performed by 62 teams, and São Paulo won the championship. This championship is notable for producing what is perhaps the only unbeaten runner-up in world football. Atlético Mineiro had won all but three of its matches, which were drawn, but was to play a single final match against São Paulo, without any advantage. A controversial scoreless draw, marred by violent playing mostly (but not exclusively) on the part of São Paulo, had to be solved in a penalty shootout.

  1. ^ In the match between Desportiva and Fluminense de Feira, Fluminense de Feira had 5 players sent off while the match was still 0-0.It was eventually discovered that Fluminense de Feira had been bribed by the Bahian Football Federation to do this in order to not let Desportiva qualify to the third phase instead of Vitória, which would happen if Desportiva won by two goals or more.CBD ordered an extra match between Desportiva and Vitória-BA because of the bribery event in the match between Desportiva and Fluminense-BA.Vitória did not show to play the extra match, thus Desportiva was awarded the berth.
