Brazilian midfielder Oscar was at the center of a mass brawl during a Chinese Super League game involving his club Shanghai SIPG against Guangzhou R&F.
Former Chelsea midfielder Oscar caused a mass brawl during a Chinese Super League game involving his team Shanghai SIPG and Guangzhou R&F on Sunday.
The Brazilian lost his cool just minutes after setting up compatriot Hulk to score an equalizer, as he fired the ball not once, but twice into an opponent as the half was about to draw to a close, forcing opposing players to push him to the ground and a mass brawl ensued in which all 22 players on the pitch, as well as the two benches, were involved.
There were a number of punches that appeared to be thrown, while Shanghai’s players looked to protect Oscar, who was still lying prone on the turf as the fight erupted around him.
Incredibly, Oscar escaped punishment while Li Tixiang was sent off for the hosts, and Fu Huan also saw red for his part on the brawl.
The game ended in a draw and Shanghai SIPG remain second in the Chinese Super League after the game – four points behind leaders Guangzhou Evergrande, while remain in fifth.
