Brazil Serie A clubs Corinthians and Coritiba advanced into the Copa do Brasil third round on Wednesday, with first-leg wins.
Victories of two goals or greater away from home in the first 90 minutes secures automatic progression to the next round in Brazil's cup competition, with the top-flight outfits able to shirk their second-round second legs with comfortable road wins.
Coritiba dismissed Caldense 2-0, gaining a two-goal advantage inside 20 minutes courtesy of goals to Jaja and Robinho at the Estadio Dr Ronaldo Junqueira.
Corinthians beat Nacional AM 3-0 on the road, with Cleber, Paolo Guerrero and Romarinho all getting on the scoresheet.
Also progressing to the third round on Thursday was Santa Rita, who thrashed Potiguar Mossoro 7-2 on aggregate.
After a 2-0 home win in the first leg, Santa Rita were poised to advance, and Potiguar Mossoro did not get within one goal of overhauling the deficit as the visitors piled on the goals.
Santa Rita led at the Nogueirao when Junior Amorim opened the scoring on seven minutes, although Potiguar struck back moments later through Paulo Paraiba.
Micheel reinstated the visitors' three-goal aggregate lead in the 14th minute, only for a Vava penalty making the second leg 2-2 after 36 minutes.
