Rio de Janeiro: Internacional have moved to the top of Brazil`s Serie A standings with a 1-0 win over Goias.

The victory was Internacional`s fifth in succession and took them a point clear of defending champions Cruzeiro, who have a game in hand.

Goias have fallen to the 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.
