Winning in front of a sold out Pacaembu stadium, Corinthians beat Gremio Prudente 3-0 on Sunday in the 23rd round of the Brazilian Championship.

The win takes Corinthians to first place, improving the team's home record to 11-1.

Corinthians scored their first goal in the 22nd minute. Stealing the ball at midfield, Elias quickly passed to Iarly who then knocked the ball past a sliding goalkeeper.

Returning from halftime, Bruno Cesar crossed the ball to Jorge Henrique who one-timed the ball into the back of the net in the 48th minute. In the 82nd minute, Elias was on the receiving end of a give-and-go with Paulinho and proceeded to blast the ball past a helpless Gremio Prudente keeper Giovanni.

The win takes Corinthians to 44 points and first place of the tournament, passing second placed Fluminense with 41 points, yet to play in the 23rd round. In the 24th round of play, Corinthians will face rival cross-town Santos on September 22.

Gremio Prudente remains in last place with 17 points. In the next round of play, the team will receive Palmeiras on September 22.
