6 September 2012 07:01

Gremio edged within a point of the top of the Brazilian Serie A with a win on Wednesday, while leaders Atletico Mineiro were held at Bahia.

Brazilian midfielder Elano scored twice as Gremio won 2-1 at home against Goianiense, with both his goals coming in an exciting opening half.

Elano struck in the 10th minute with a free-kick and completed his brace nine minutes later as Gremio opened up a two-goal lead.

Marino got a goal back for Goianiense in the 24th minute, but they failed to find an equaliser from that point on as Gremio held on to record the victory.

Goianiense remain on the bottom of the table with 16 points, while Gremio are third on 44.

Meanwhile, Atletico Mineiro missed the chance to extend their lead at the top of the table when they were held to a goalless draw away against Bahia.

Mineiro dominated the majority of the match, but were unable to find the decisive breakthrough despite having 12 shots on goal.

Despite the draw, Mineiro remain on top of the table with 45 points, one clear of Fluminense in second and Gremio in third.
