RIO DE JANEIRO, July 31 (Xinhua) -- At home after returning from Germany and the Audi Cup, Internacional played out to a scoreless draw against Atletico-GO on Sunday in the 13th round of the 2011 Brazilian Championship.

At the Audi Cup, Internacional placed third in the four-team tournament, beating AC Milan in the bronze medal match.
