Recife edge nine-man Bahia

A goal from substitute Mike booked Sport Recife a 1-0 victory over nine-man Bahia at the Ilha do Retiro on Wednesday.

The club from Pernambuco made it back-to-back wins - following Sunday's triumph at Vitoria - when Mike emerged from the bench to hit the only goal of the game in the 73rd minute.

Sport climb to ninth in the Campeonato table while Bahia, who lost both goalkeeper Marcelo Lomba and defender Roniery to red cards during the second half, remain down in 15th and just above the relegation zone.
