Internacional will now take their place in the overall final as the winner of the first stage and a second stage begins in order to find the second team to contest the final.
Leandro Damião opened the scoring with a superb low effort from the edge of the box to give Internacional the lead after the away side missed a host of chances in the early stages.
Internacional added a second just before the break as Gabriel pounced on a loose ball in the box to lash home after a goalmouth scramble.
Damião was a threat once more as the long-time Tottenham target set up D'Alessandro for the third goal as the midfielder tucked away a simple finish past the advancing goalkeeper.
The Internacional striker was in a confident mood and saved his best for last as he curled in a majestic strike that left the keeper floundering at thin air.
Internacional weren't finished just yet as Rafael Moura added a fifth goal with a lobbed finish in the last few seconds as they ended the game with a flourish.
