Orlando City's Kaka makes goalscoring return for Sao Paulo

Kaka made a goalscoring second debut for Sao Paulo but could not prevent his side from slipping to defeat at Goias in the 13th round of the Brazilian Campeonato.
Kaka has returned to his first club on a six-month loan from newly-formed MLS side Orlando City, whom he joined earlier this month after leaving AC Milan, and the former world player of the year got his name on the scoresheet in his first Sao Paulo outing in 11 years with a 76th-minute strike against Goias.
That victory lifted Goias above Sao Paulo into seventh spot, although they are still eight points adrift of leaders Cruzeiro who picked up a fourth successive win on Saturday.
Fluminense and Internacional remain a point further back after beating Atletico Paranaense and Bahia, respectively.
Fluminense ended Paranaense's three-match winning streak with a 3-0 triumph, Jean (17), Dario Conca (35, penalty) and Santos Cicero (65) the men on the mark, while Paulista's 66th-minute goal earned Internacional a 1-0 win over second-bottom Bahia.
Fifth-placed Sport Recife picked up a fourth win in five games with their 2-1 success over Atletico Mineiro. Felipe Azevedo (51) and Durval (68) put the hosts in charge before Diego Tardelli's 85th-minute penalty set up a tense finale.
Coritiba claimed only their second win of the season as they snatched a 3-2 triumph at Gremio courtesy of Alex's 90th-minute winner.
