JOHANNESBURG (AP) – Sao Paulo moved within four points of Campeonato leaders Corinthians on Sunday night thanks to a 3-0 win at Internacional.
Casemiro set the visitors on their way with the opening goal in the 19th minute and Fernandinho doubled their advantage six minutes before the break.
Substitute Carlinhos Paraiba grabbed a third goal in the last minute, just
seven minutes after his introduction, as Sao Paulo climbed two places to second and kept up the pressure on Corinthians, albeit having played a game more.
Elsewhere in the Brazilian top flight, Washington bagged a brace in Ceara's 4-0 home win over second-bottom America MG. Fabricio and Felipe Azevedo were also on target.
Cruzeiro climbed to seventh courtesy of a 2-1 home triumph over Bahia, Wallyson scoring either side of Jobson's equaliser.
