Santos secured their second win of the Brazilian Campeonato season on Thursday with a 2-0 success at Bahia.

Alan Santos opened the scoring just after the hour mark and Lucas Lima sealed matters a minute from time to lift the visitors to 11th in the standings - three points ahead of their hosts.

Also on Thursday, Figueirense moved off the bottom with a 1-1 draw at 17th-placed Flamengo.

Alecsandro had put the home team ahead in the 20th minute but the lead lasted only two minutes before Everaldo struck to salvage a point for the promoted outfit.
