São Paulo enjoyed a mesmerising home victory against Red Bull Bragantino at Morumbí on Sunday. Both sides came from defeats in their previous league games. São Paulo were hoping to get something from this game after losing their last match 2-0 to Flamengo. Bragantino, on the other hand, lost 2-1 in the last match they played against Atlético Goianense. As it stands, São Paulo are in 10th place in the table and have 29 points while Bragantino sit in 8th with 30 points after 22 matches.

São Paulo didn’t take long to get on the score-sheet, when Rodrigo Nestor opened the rout at the 25 minute mark. The score at half time was 1-0.

São Paulo continued to apply pressure in the second, when Jonathan Calleri found the net, 59 minutes in. However they weren’t finished yet and Igor Vinicius made it 3-0 in the 61st minute to make it 3-0.

Substitutions for São Paulo included Luizao, Maycon Nikao, Alisson, Andres Colorado and Eder for Miranda, Luciano, Patrick, Gabriel Neves and Jonathan Calleri, repectively. Bragantino brought on Carlos Eduardo, Gabriel Novaes, Helinho, Ramon and Jose Hurtado, to replace Jan Hurtado, Marcos Vinicios, Artur, Kevin Lomonaco and Hyoran.

The referee booked Miranda for São Paulo.
