SAO PAULO (AP) -- Bolivian striker Marcelo Moreno scored a late goal to help defending champion Cruzeiro beat Internacional 3-1 and take the Brazilian league lead on Sunday.

Cruzeiro's third win in a row left the club with 16 points from seven matches, one point ahead of Fluminense, which on Saturday defeated Bahia 1-0 for its third victory in four matches.

Internacional had its winless streak extended to three matches, dropping to eighth place in the 20-team standings with 12 points.

Internacional got on the board with Wellington in the 38th, but Ricardo Goulart equalized for Cruzeiro just four minutes later. Willian netted the go-ahead goal in the 70th and Moreno sealed the victory in the 87th.

It was Moreno's fifth league goal, making him the championship's leading scorer after the first seven rounds.
