RIO DE JANEIRO, Dec. 3 (Xinhua) -- Sao Paulo moved to the top of the Brazilian Serie A standings on Thursday, extending their unbeaten league run to 15 matches with a 3-0 victory at Goias.

Igor Gomes put the visitors ahead in the 19th minute before Brenner and Hernanes struck second-half goals as the Tricolor secured their 12th win of the campaign.

Sao Paulo were again superbly marshalled by veteran Dani Alves, who has been deployed in central midfield for most of the season instead of his usual right-back role.

Fernando Diniz's men are hoping to clinch their first Brazilian Serie A title since 2008.

They are currently two-points clear of second-placed Atletico Mineiro but with a game in hand.
