Watch: Incredible play between Willian, Coutinho and Paulinho in Brazil win
Willian created the game’s only goal in the first half, linking up with Dani Alves before crossing for Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus to head home.
The second half saw some brilliant skill when Willian combined with Paulinho and Philippe Coutinho to get on the end of a big chance for the away side.
Marcelo won the ball back high up the pitch before offloading to Coutinho, who wriggled out of a tight space to find Paulinho just inside the box.
The former Spurs man made a brilliant turn before laying the ball across the box towards Coutinho, who played a brilliant dummy to allow the pass to run through to Willian, whose shot was well blocked before Paulinho saw his follow-up saved by Kevin Trapp.
