Sao Paulo win to extend lead in Brazil's Serie A

RIO DE JANEIRO, Dec 26 (Reuters) - Two goals from Brenner da Silva gave league leaders Sao Paulo a 2-1 win over Fluminense in Brazil on Saturday.

The 20-year-old striker scored in the 15th and 72nd minutes -- either side of a superb Fred strike for Fluminense -- to seal the three points and put them seven clear of Flamengo and Atletico Mineiro.

Fluminense remain in seventh, 16 points off the lead. (Writing by Andrew Downie in London; Editing by Peter Rutherford )
