  Former Chelsea man Oscar involved in huge bust up in CSL match Former Chelsea midfielder Oscar was at the centre of a huge bust up in a Chinese Super League match between Shanghai SIPG and Guangzhou R&F. The match was becoming a fiery affair, which was not helped by the Brazilian, who retaliated, kicking the ball directly at two Guangzhou players from close proximity, which they were not particularly pleased about. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ReadChelsea/videos/1638031099618881/ With the scores at 1-1, chaos ensued as players and coaches from both sides ran onto the pitch as Oscar laid on the floor. The Brazilian has only scored the one league goal since joining the Chinese Super League side with SIPG sitting second in the table, trailing only Guangzhou Evergrande. Oscar has still enjoyed Chelsea’s success since he left the club during the January transfer window. The attacker was given a Premier League winner’s medal, despite leaving half way through the campaign. The Brazilian international made nine appearances for the Blues during the first half of season, enough to award him with a medal.

Brazilian international Oscar triggered a mass brawl in the Chinese Super League as players and staff from his Shanghai SIPG side and opponents Guangzhou R&F scrapped on the pitch.

Oscar, who cost SIPG a whopping 60 million euros ($67 million) in the last transfer window to become the biggest transfer in Asian football history, sparked the confrontation when he deliberately lashed the ball twice at R&F players.

The home side's Chen Zhizhao retaliated, pushing the 25-year-old Brazilian to the floor, then players, coaching staff and substitutes poured off the benches and waded in as Oscar lay face down on the pitch.

When order was restored after pushing and shoving, R&F's Li Tixiang and Shanghai's Fu Huan were dismissed and three others were booked.

Oscar was unhurt and the fiery encounter finished 1-1 to leave SIPG four points behind reigning champions Guangzhou Evergrande.

Another Brazilian international, the forward Hulk, equalised for Shanghai after being set up by Oscar just before the fisticuffs.

R&F players were incensed that the goal was allowed to stand as Oscar appeared to have been offside before his assist.

Villas-Boas told Shanghai's official social media: "Our goal should be offside and it was unlucky for Guangzhou."

R&F apologised after the home side racked up five yellow cards in addition to the one red.

"We are sorry about the infringements during the game and hope the players can adjust their attitude and prepare for the following game," R&F said in a statement.

But that apology might not be enough for the CSL and image-conscious Chinese Football Association (CFA).

Shanghai Shenhua's Qin Sheng was hit with a six-month ban earlier this year for stomping on Belgian international Axel Witsel of Tianjin Quanjian.

Then last month Zhang Jian, senior vice-president and general secretary of the CFA, called for "good order" between the league's foreign stars and domestic players after allegations of racism and a number of on-field flare-ups.
