Brazil gave beleaguered coach Dunga much-needed respite by beating Chile 3-0 away in a World Cup qualifier on Sunday despite a Ronaldinho penalty miss.
Luis Fabiano notched two goals for Brazil, who had not scored in their previous three games, and Robinho was also on target while RonaldinhoÃ‚â€™s spot-kick was superbly saved by Claudio Bravo.
Brazil defender Kleber and Chile midfielder Jorge Valdivia, playing only his second international since completing a 10-match ban for indiscipline, were sent off in the second half of a rough but pulsating match.
Brazil moved from sixth up to second in the 10-team South American group with 12 points from seven games, ahead of Argentina on goal difference and two points behind Paraguay.
