Fluminense leapfrog Santos into fourth with 3-1 win

·1-min read

RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Fluminense extended their unbeaten run to seven games with a convincing 3-1 win at home to Santos on Sunday.

Luccas Claro put Fluminense ahead after 28 minutes when he headed home a loose ball and although Marinho equalised nine minutes before halftime, Nino gave Fluminense the lead again in the 56th with another header.

Marcos Paulo made the points safe with a third in the dying seconds for the home side that lifted them to fourth place in the 20-team Serie A table with 29 points from 18 matches.

Santos, who fell to their second league defeat in three games, slipped to sixth, two points behind their opponents.
