Rio de Janeiro: Paris Saint-Germain-bound winger Lucas Moura was on the scoresheet as Sao Paulo defeated Ponte Preta 3-0 in Brazil`s Serie A championship.

Rogerio Ceni opened the scoring from the penalty spot at the Morumbi Stadium Saturday before Moura made it 2-0 with an unstoppable drive from outside the area.

Osvaldo put the result beyond doubt when he dribbled past three defenders before slotting in the team`s third goal with just four minutes remaining.

The match was Lucas` first for Sao Paulo since his return from the London Olympics.

He will join Paris Saint-Germain in January after the French outfit agreed to pay 43 million euros for the 19-year-old on a four-and-a-half year deal.

"The goal was a reflection of the desire I have to wear this shirt," Moura said after the match.

"I am very happy with the signing but now I`m going to try my hardest to help Sao Paulo win a title or at least secure a spot in the Copa Libertadores next season," Moura said.

In other games Saturday, Fluminense beat Sport 1-0 while Nautico overcame Bahia 1-0.
