Changchun 4-2 Shanghai SIPG: Oscar, Hulk & AVB in defeat!
Shanghai SIPG failed to overtake Guangzhou Evergrande at the top of the Chinese Super League after a 4-2 defeat at Changchun Yatai. The visitors, who were still without manager Andre Villas-Boas, Oscar and Hulk due to suspension, fell three goals behind within 30 minutes. An unlucky own goal in the second half gave them a glimmer of hope but Odion Ighalo restored the lead minutes later with the fourth goal for Changchun. Shanghai SIPG scored their second from another hilarious defensive bungle when a deflection saw the ball bounce over the goalkeeper and into the net, but it was not enough to spark a comeback.
