Santos opened the scoring in the 16th minute in a controversial move. Rwan, in a dubious position, was thrown by Ed Carlos, advanced on the left and kicked hard. The ball deflected in the defense, exploded in the right post of the goalkeeper Thiago and, in the left, Lucas Barbosa released the left-handed bomb to score.
Fluminense tried to react, but Peixe reached the second again with Lucas Barbosa. In the 40th minute, shirt 11 advanced on the right, managed to hit with his left leg and hit with class, from outside the area, to extend the advantage.
In the second half, Tricolor went up in search of a tie. The team from Rio reduced the Santos advantage in the 24th minute, with John Kennedy. He received a pass from Wallace and gave a nice touch over the top when goalkeeper Diógenes came out. Fluminense had the great chance of equalizing in the 44th minute, with John Kennedy, but Diógenes saved Santos.
With the victory, Santos will face Mirassol, who thrashed Bahia this Sunday morning (16) by 5-1.
