This was the Argentine’s 21st goal in the Brazilian and the striker’s 39th this season. In this way, Cano started to share the top of Fluminense’s artillery in the same season in the century, alongside Magno Alves, and equaled Aristizábal as the foreigner with the most goals in a single Brazilian with consecutive points.

Fluminense returns to the field for the Brazileiro on Saturday (5), when they host São Paulo at Maracanã. On the same day Ceará visits Corinthians.
