Diego Forlan netted a first-half brace as Internacional came from behind to win 2-1 at Vasco da Gama in the Brazilian Campeonato on Wednesday night.

The Uruguay forward bagged his first goal in the 34th minute, cancelling out Jonas' opener, and then completed the turnaround with what proved to be the winner on the stroke of half-time.

The win lifted Inter to sixth in the standings - two points behind fifth-spotted Vasco - with six games remaining.

Elsewhere, Bruno Mendes and Clarence Seedorf were on the scoresheet in the first half to earn Botafogo a 2-0 triumph at second-bottom Figueirense, lifting the victors to seventh position.
