Brazilian Oscar at the double to earn Asian Champions League point for SIPG

Brazilian Oscar scored twice to salvage a 2-2 draw for Shanghai SIPG against Ulsan Hyundai on Wednesday as the Chinese Super League side's perfect start to the Asian Champions League came to an end.

The former Chelsea playmaker twice levelled for SIPG after Richard Windbichler and Kim In-sung had scored for the South Koreans.

Windbichler put his side in front in the 37th minute but Oscar levelled with a low, long-range strike into the bottom corner less than a minute later.

Two minutes after Kim restored Ulsan's advantage, the 26-year-old Oscar curled his second into the top corner from the edge of the area to keep Shanghai on top of Group F with seven points from three games.

Ulsan are second in the group with Melbourne Victory in third after Leroy George's late penalty earned the Australian side a 2-2 draw with Kawasaki Frontale, who twice took the lead only to be pegged back.

Elsinho gave the Japanese champions the lead before Besart Berisha levelled the scores with a header, only for Kyohei Noborizato to restore Kawasaki's lead with a close-range tap-in.
