An 11-minute hat-trick from Luciano gave Corinthians a 5-2 victory over Goias and moved them into third in the Campeonato table on Thursday.

Shared goals from Paolo Guerrero, Elias (both Corinthians), Thiago Mendes and Jackson de Souza (Goias) had left the clash locked at 2-2 with 12 minutes to go.

But 21-year-old Luciano had a fine sense of timing as he struck in the 78th, 85th and 89th minutes to seal a thrilling win.

Elsewhere, leaders Cruzeiro left it late to see off Gremio. Dagoberto scored the only goal just four minutes from the end to put his side five points clear at the top.
