At home against Gremio in the 32nd round of the Brazilian Championship, leader Fluminense won 2-0 on Thursday with star midfielder Conca scoring both goals.

Fluminense scored their first goal in the 19th minute. Receiving the ball at the top of the penalty box, Conca spun past the defense of Souza and drove the ball into the lower right corner of the Gremio goal.

Conca scored his second goal in the 81st minute. Off a crossed ball from Washington, Conca divided the defense and extended his right foot to redirect the ball into the back of the net.

The win takes Fluminense to 57 points, extending their lead with only six rounds remaining in this year's tournament.

In the 33rd round, the team will look to retain their leadership in the tournament when they travel to face Internacional on November 3 when Gremio who dropped to ninth place with 47 points, will travel to play Goias.
