São Paulo eased past Atlético Goianense in a 2-1 victory on Sunday at Estadio Antonio Accioly. With both teams drawing in their previous fixtures, they were keen to pick up points.

As the table looks today, Goianense are in 14th place in the table and have 17 points while São Paulo sit in 9th with 19 points after 15 matches.

São Paulo started the match well, when Luciano gave São Paulo the lead, at 24 minutes. However, their celebrations were kept brief, as Marlon Freitas equalised for Goianense, 27 minutes in to see out the first half 1-1.

São Paulo continued to apply pressure in the second and were rewarded, when Luciano found the net again, at 62 minutes, leaving the final score at 2-1.
