Internacional finished off their disappointing Club World Cup on a positive note as they beat Seongnam llhwa 4-2 to claim third-place.
The Brazilian team were widely expected to meet fellow seeds Inter Milan in the final of the competition in Abu Dhabi.
However, they suffered a shock defeat by TP Mazembe in the semi-final and had to console themselves with Saturday's appetiser before Inter and Mazembe contested the main event.
Internacional were already 2-0 up through Tinga and Alecsandro's goals before Jang Suk-Won was sent off for Seongnam, making the Korean side's task even harder.
The Porto Alegre side made hay after the break with Andres D'Alessandro making it 3-0 before Alecsandro clinched his second of the game.
Seongnam then stunned Internacional with Colombian striker Mauricio Molina's brace in the last six minutes, though it proved immaterial as the South Americans ran out comfortable winners.
