internacional.jpgThe second phase of the Copa do Brasil got underway on Wednesday with five Série A teams in action.


Such are the inequities of the competition that any of the big boys could have gone through with a win of two clear goals or more.


Only Porto Alegre’s Internacional managed this winning 2×0 at Chapecoense SC.


The biggest surprise of the night came in São Paulo were minnows Juventus saw off Náutico with two goals from Lima. Náutico still have the opportunity to bounce back in Recife in the second leg.


The return legs will be played on 2nd, 3rd and 9th April.
