PORTO ALEGRE, Brazil (Reuters) – Athletico Paranaense stayed top of the Brazilian league on Sunday thanks to a 1-0 win away at Gremio.

Matheus Babi got the goal that helped the side from Curitiba maintain their 100% record in this year’s Serie A.

The striker got in behind the Gremio defence a minute before halftime and although he was flagged offside, the goal was given after a consultation with the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).

The result leaves Athletico with nine points from three games. Gremio are pointless after two matches.
