Brazilians Oscar and Hulk have won the Chinese Super League with Shanghai SIPG, ending Guangzhou Evergrande's seven-year reign as champions.


Shanghai beat Beijing Renhe 2-1 to win their maiden league title, with one game remaining in the season.

Former Porto and Zenit St Petersburg striker Hulk joined for £46.1m in 2016 and has scored 13 goals this season.

Oscar signed for £60m from Chelsea in January 2017 and scored 12 goals and made 21 assists in 28 league games.

Guangzhou Evergrande, managed by Italy's former World Cup-winning captain Fabio Cannavaro, are eight points behind Shanghai.

"We have broken Evergrande's monopoly of the last seven years," said Vitor Pereira, who succeeded fellow Portuguese Andre Villas-Boas as Shanghai manager. "That was an amazing challenge and we have done it."
