Corinthians have moved six points clear at the Brasileirao summit night thanks to a 1-0 home win over Internacional.

Striker Willian netted the game's only goal 14 minutes from time as the Paulista giants doubled their advantage over second-placed Flamengo after nine rounds.

Internacional remained sixth after their third loss of the campaign, but slipped ten points off the pace having played a game more.
