Internacional snatched all three points from Goiás EC in a 2-1 victory on Thursday, at Estádio da Serrinha. Goiás were looking for a victory following a disappointing 1-1 draw with Ceará in their previous game. Internacional were able to continue their winning streak after a 3-1 win against Flamengo in their last match. As the table looks today, Goiás are in 15th place, with 14 points from 12 matches, while Internacional sit in 3rd, with 21 points from 12.

Internacional started strong and were rewarded for their efforts, when Edenilson gave Internacional the lead at the 8 minute mark. However, the good fortune didn’t last for long. An equalizer from Joao Vitor Vallony da Silva in the 41st minute brought Goiás level. However, Internacional just before halftime found the back of the net thanks to a Alan Patrick goal, ending the first half 2-1. The second 45 minutes ended with little further action at either end and goalless.

Substitutions for Goiás included Renato Junior, Auremir, Luan Dias da Silva, Pedro Junqueira de Oliveira and Vitor Hugo Da Silva Goncalves for Pedro Raul, Matheus Sales, Caio, Reynaldo and Vinicius, repectively. Internacional brought on Mauricio, Liziero, Alemao, Pedro Henrique and Rodrigo Moledo, to replace Alan Patrick, Johnny, David, Wanderson and Fabricio Bustos.

There were bookings for Matheus Sales, Renato Junior, Reynaldo and Luan Dias da Silva from Goiás. For Internacional, Moises, Daniel and Liziero saw yellow.

Goiás will play away against Corinthians, while Internacional will face Botafogo at home.
