RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug. 16 (Xinhua) -- Internacional moved to the top of Brazil's Serie A standings with a 1-0 victory over luckless Goias on Saturday.
The hosts looked the better side for long periods at the Serra Dourada stadium in Goiania before Pedrao turned the ball into his own net in the 77th minute.
The victory was Internacional's fifth in succession and leaves them a point clear of defending champions Cruzeiro, who have a game in hand.
Goias have fallen to 10th, 11 points behind the leaders after 15 matches.
In Saturday's only other fixture, Bahia moved out of the relegation zone by holding Corinthians to a 1-1 draw in Sao Paulo.
