Hosting Atletico-MG in the 24th round of the Brazilian Championship, Fluminense won on Thursday by the score of 5-1.

Fluminense scored the game's first goal in the 11th minute. Off a corner kick from Conca, Leandro Euzebio leaped between two defenders to head the ball past keeper Fabio Costa into the goal.

Atletico-MG responded in the 19th minute when Daniel Carvalho pounded a direct kick over the defensive wall of Fluminense players and into the right corner of the goal, tying the match.

Fluminense reclaimed the lead just before half time. In the 35th minute, Carlinhos dribbled through the defense and angled a shot that slowly rolled past a diving Fabio Costa.

After the break, Fluminense returned to the field to score twice more. In the 63rd minute, Mariano centered the ball to Gum who out-jumped the defense to head in his team's third goal.

The team scored again in the 76th minute when Carlinhos was on the receiving end of a give-and-go, blowing the ball into the right corner of Fabio Costa's goal, tallying his second goal of the night.

Fluminense's final goal came in the 90+1 minute when Marquinho waited patiently to fire the ball past Fabio Costa.

The win keeps Fluminense in second place with 45 points. In the 25th round of play, Fluminense will travel to face Vitoria on September 26.

Atletico-MG remains in a troubling 18th place with 21 points. In next round of play, the team will receive Gremio on September 26.
