A late Hulk penalty proved the difference as Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG downed Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors 2-1 in the AFC Champions League bubble in Doha, Qatar. Vitor Pereira’s team notched a second win since the restart to take control of the group and leave the South Korean champions in trouble with one point from their opening three games. SIPG’s opener was route one football and came barely 10 minutes into the game. Goalkeeper Chen Wei bypassed the Korean defence with a long ball upfield that left Lu Wenjun through on Jeonbuk keeper Song Bum-keun. The Shanghai striker slotted home. The lead lasted 13 minutes when Gustavo got on to a Kim Bo-kyung ball to prod home the leveller. Despite chances at both ends in the second half, including Aaron Mooy going close after coming on, it stayed that way until late into the second half when the referee pointed to the spot after substitute Oscar was brought down in the box.

The win gives SIPG six points from six and leaves them second in the group behind Yokohama F Marinos on goal difference. The top two meet in a double-header next. It was not all good news for Chinese Super League sides on the continent as a toothless Guangzhou Evergrande failed to register an effort of note against South Korea’s Suwon Samsung Bluewings. That was the first 0-0 since the East Asian zone started in Doha last week and Guangzhou Evergrande coach Fabio Cannavaro was disappointed with his players, telling them “This is not our style”. “We did not control the ball, we did not create chances and we did not try to score,” Cannavaro said. “I know after the defeat to Jiangsu Suning in the league final, my players have not been in a clear state of mind, but this is the AFC Champions League, and it is completely different. You play against strong teams and if you do not give 110 per cent in every game, you cannot win. “Solving mental issues is not something you can do in three days. The situation is not easy, but I am the coach and it is my job to give them the confidence to go forward.” The CSL runners-up, who are without star midfielder Paulinho after he pulled out of the Champions League squad through injury, are in a three-team group because Malaysian champions JDT were not allowed to travel.
