Brasileirão round-up: Flu defeat Santos to claim top spot, Palmeiras beat relegation rivals Sport
Brasileirão: Round 22
Fluminense 3–1 Santos
Fluminense now lead the Campeonato Brasileiro after defeating Santos 3-1 in Rio de Janeiro.
The highly-rated Wellington Nem gave the Tricolor Carioca the lead in the 20th minute at the Engenhão, before André equalised eight minutes later.
Nem, however, found the target again for Fluminense on the stroke of half-time, and Samuel's classy finish thirteen minutes from the end ensured all three points for Abel Braga's side.
Palmeiras 3-1 Sport Recife
Palmeiras defeated their relegation rivals Sport Recife 3-1 at the Pacaembu.
The Copa do Brasil winners took fifty-two minutes to opening the scoring thanks to Correa, who's powerful strike crept under the body of goalkeeper Magrão, but Rivaldo's stunning long-range effort in the 62nd minute put Sport back on level terms.
However, before the away side even had time to get back into their positions, Thiago Real restored Palmeiras' lead, and former Shandong Luneng striker Obina wrapped up the points just a few moments later.
The result means Palmeiras move up one place into seventeenth, while Sport drop down one place into eighteenth.
