Brazil giants Corinthians returned to the top flight of the Brasileiro after a 2-0 win over Ceará.

The São Paulo side were relegated at the end of 2007 but have clinched a place in Série A with six rounds still remaining in the second division.

Under former Grêmio coach, Mano Menezes, Corinthians have picked up 20 wins, 10 draws and just two defeats.

Planning has already started for the 2009 season but Corinthians will struggle to hold on to the likes of Douglas, André Santos and even coach Mano Menezes.

    difficult to say. santos have found some form but will be without 4 or 5 first teamers – Sport at home are 8 wins, 5 draws, 2 losses. so, it will be tricky for Santos
