Soccer-Palmeiras move closer to Brazilian title with 3-0 win

SAO PAULO, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Palmeiras moved eight points clear at the top of Brazil’s Serie A on Wednesday with a thumping 3-0 win over Fluminense.

The victory takes the Sao Paulo club a step nearer the title with just four games of the season remaining.

Colombian striker Borja got the opener in 40 minutes when he capitalised on poor defending to score from close range.

Felipe Melo added a second with a spectacular volley from the edge of the penalty box after 83 minutes and Luan added a third with a header in the closing minutes. (Reporting by Andrew Downie; Editing by Greg Stutchbury)
