SUZHOU, China, Sept. 22 (Xinhua) — Hulk scored from the penalty area as Shanghai SIPG beat Shijiazhuang Ever Bright 1-0 in the 12th round of the Chinese Super League (CSL) here on Tuesday.

The second half witnessed the prowess of Shanghai captain Hulk.

In the 81st minute, Shijiazhuang wasted their best scoring opportunity to tie the match as Piao Shihao’s close range open shot missed the target.

Shanghai is scheduled to meet Beijing Guoan in the next round on Friday, and will secure the top spot going into the second phase if it could remain undefeated. Shijiazhuang will fight against Chongqing Lifan on the same day.

“We have two more matches to play in the first phase. We will try our best to rank first in our division,” said Wang Shenchao. Enditem
