RIO DE JANEIRO, Sept. 19 (Xinhua) -- Marcos Keno scored a hat-trick as Atletico Mineiro twice came from behind to win 4-3 at Atletico Goianiense and move to the top of the Brazilian Serie A standings on Saturday.

Lucas Oliveira put the hosts ahead with a rasping 20-yard effort that flew into the top-left corner before Keno equalized from the penalty spot after Nathan Souza was brought down by Eder Ferreira.

Gustavo Ferrareis restored the hosts' lead after Janderson's through ball but Souza put his team on level terms again by bundling home from close range.

Keno doubled his personal tally with a low finish and then headed in his third goal by latching on to a Mariano cross.

Gilvan Correa pulled a late goal back for the hosts with a stoppage-time header following an Everton Felipe corner.

Atletico Mineiro, who are managed by former Argentina and Chile boss Jorge Sampaoli, now have 21 points from 10 matches, one point ahead of second-placed Internacional, who have a game in hand.

In other fixtures on Saturday, Bragantino beat Ceara 4-2 and Fortaleza overcame Internacional 1-0.
