Fluminense moved to the top of the Brazilian Serie A following a 1-0 win at Bahia.

The visitors took a fourth-minute lead through Robert Kennedy and although they could not make the game safe, they held on to move two points above Cruzeiro, who could resume top spot if they beat Internacional on Sunday evening.

Gremio missed out on the chance to go to the top of the standings after suffering a 1-0 defeat at Sao Paulo.

Gremio could have moved one point above Fluminense with victory, but slipped off the pace as Reinaldo struck just after the hour mark to give Sao Paulo the spoils.
