Rio de Janeiro: Former Brazil U-20 international Marcos Junior struck the decisive penalty as Fluminense defeated arch-rivals Flamengo via penalty shoot-out to win the Guanabara Cup at the Olympic Stadium here.

Fluminense won the penalty shoutout 4-2 after the teams were locked 3-3 at the end of normal time during Sunday’s final, reports Xinhua news agency.

It was Fluminense’s 10th Guanabara Cup title and their second triumph in the competition since 1993.

Wellington Silva opened the scoring for Fluminense in the fourth minute before William and Everton struck in quick succession to give Flamengo the lead.

Goals from Henrique Dourado and Lucas appeared to hand Fluminense control of the match before Peru international striker Paolo Guerrero scored an 84th minute equaliser.
