7 September 2012 05:27

Fluminense moved to the top of the Brazil Serie A table with an emphatic victory on Thursday, while Palmeiras also won.

Young midfielder Wellington struck twice in an exciting opening half as Fluminense overtook Atletico MG at the head of proceedings with the 3-1 triumph over Santos.

It did not take long for Fluminense to assert their dominance in Rio de Janeiro with Wellington putting the home side in the lead with a strike in the 20th minute.

Andre Felipe got on the end of a Gerson Magrao cross nine minutes later to square the ledger, but Wellington completed his brace and put Fluminense FC back on top two minutes before half-time when he nodded home Wagner's cross.

There were chances at both ends in the second half, but when Samuel struck from the top of the box in the 77th minute the points were sealed for the hosts.

The victory sends Fluminense two points ahead at the top of the table, with Atletico MG two points behind and with a game in hand.

In the other match on Thursday, Palmeiras moved up to 17th place with their own 3-1 win over Sport Recife.

After a scoreless opening half, Correa put Palmeiras in front in the 52nd minute, before Rivaldo levelled the scores for Sport nine minutes later.

Tiago Real restored Palmeiras' advantage in the 62nd minutes and Obina struck moments later to seal the points.
