Cordeiro, Morais and Sandro celebrate Inter’s first vs Palmeiras

Internacional maintained their 100% record with a 2-0 win over a disappointing Palmeiras. With a second leg match vs Flamengo in the Copa do Brasil coming up, Inter rested most of their key players but were still too much for Palmeiras. Goals from Danny Morias and a late strike from substitute, D’Alessandro, sealed the points. See the highlights here

Vitória are the only other team with a perfect start. Neto Baiano’s goal was enough to beat Sport Recife who have had a bad week after they went out of the Libertadores to Palmeiras.

São Paulo’s poor start to the season continued on Sunday. The champions had to come from behind to Atlético Paranaense twice in the Morumbi. A brace from Rafael Santos was cancelled out by goals from Borges and André Lima.

Cruzeiro suffered a surprise defeat going down on a hideously bad pitch against Náutico. Derley and Carlinhos Bala did the damage.

Giants Flamengo and Corinthians have yet to win or hit the net. Flamengo were held 0-0 by new boys Avaí and Corinthians repeated the score away to Botafogo

Coritiba are now the only side without a point after they crashed at home 4-2 to Santo André.

    Palmeiras seem to have the same issue as Flamengo right now and thats finding the back of the net.

    Inter have now notched up two vicotories over two sides who are expected to be amongst the top of the pack come the end of the season. Both win’s could turn out to be crucial come December.

    I think there’s definitely more to come from Inter. Taison’s looked fairly quiet in the opening two matches and the likes of D’Alessandro and Guiliano have not got going yet.

    I have a strong feeling the Brasileirao is heading south this year!
