RIO DE JANEIRO, Nov 10 (Reuters) - Flamengo recovered from a goal down to beat Bahia 3-1 on Sunday and take another step towards what looks like an increasingly inevitable Brazilian league title.

Bahia were the last side to beat Flamengo - on the first weekend of the season in August - and they took the lead six minutes before halftime when Elber’s cross deflected off Willian Arao and into the net for an own goal.

However, second-half goals from Reinier, Bruno Henrique and Gabriel Barbosa, his 21st of the league season, guaranteed Flamengo an 11th win from their last 12 games.
