Guangzhou R&F draw 3-3 with Shanghai SIPG in Chinese Super League


08-01-2016 11:22 BJT

To the Chinese Super League now where Guangzhou R&F would be hosting Shanghai-based SIPG. Wu Lei and the visitors needed a win to try and move above city rivals Shenhua and into third in the standings -- and one of the automatic AFC Champions League positions.

There would be plenty of goals in this one -- and the scoring began after 17 minutes. Guangzhou's Lu Lin's pass is headed back by Xiao Zhi into the path of Renatinho, who hits a stunning half-volley into the top corner to give his side a 1-nil lead.

However, the visitors responded within two minutes. Jean Kouassi's eludes several defenders and finds Wu Lei at the far post who knocks it home to make it 1-1.

That's how things stay at the break, but five minutes after the restart Elkeson plays a clever through ball as Wu Lei beats the offside trap. He evades the charging keeper and is able fire at the net, and it finds its way home and that puts the visitors in front by a goal.

But the hosts would mount a comeback -- in the 79th minute Renatinho plays a ball into the box and Eran Zahavi heads the ball back into the path of Wang Song who equalised with a low drive.

Then late in the match Wan Shenchao pulls Jiang Zhipeng down after the winger beats him the box, resulting in a penalty.

Eran Zahavi sends Yan Junling the wrong way from the spot as the hosts regain the lead. 3-2 after 82 minutes.

But the visitors get a penalty of their own -- as Gustav Svensson impedes Kouassi with referee Fu pointing to the spot. The call comign in injury time.

Wu Lei holds his nerve to complete his hat-trick from 12 yards as the visitors salvage a late point. 3-3 is how it ends.

In Sunday's other results, Changchun Yatai defeted Chongqing Lifan 3-nil. Tianjin Teda and Liaoning Whowin split four goals. Shijiazhuang Everbright and Huaxia Fortune play to a 1-all draw.
