Big boys Corinthians and Internacional will have to overcome deficits from their first leg matches if they are to progress to the quarter-finals of the Copa do Brasil.


Corinthians crashed 3×1 away at Goiás. Paulo Baier (photo) was on target twice for the home team before Diogo Rincon pulled one back with a fortunate rebound. Minutes later, Goiás were two in front again when Evandro struck the goal of the night. See the best moments here.  

Internacional caved in 2×0 at second division Paraná. The Coritiba team have Ângelo and Fabio Luiz to thank for the lead they will take to Porto Alegre next week.    

Elsewhere, Edmundo scored the only goal for Vasco against Criciúma. Série A teams Portuguesa and Botafogo drew 1×1 at the estádio Canindé. And São Caetano pulled off a 2×1 win over Atlético GO.  

Corinthians AL and Juventude; Náutico and Atlético Mineiro; Palmeiras and Sport play on Thursday.
