SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Wesley scored a first-half double as Palmeiras condemned newly promoted Chapecoense to their second successive defeat in Brazil's Serie A on Sunday.

Wesley scored in the seventh and 42nd minutes, the second a superb solo effort, either side of a header from Luiz Adriano.

Busanello scored a free kick for Chapecoense 10 minutes into the second half but they could not mount an effective comeback.

The result leaves Chapecoense bottom of the 20-team Serie A after two games, while Palmeiras moved into seventh with three points.
