Shanghai's Andre Villas-Boas accuses Guangzhou Evergrande of engineering disruptive vehicle accidents

Shanghai's Andre Villas-Boas accuses Guangzhou Evergrande of engineering disruptive vehicle accidents”

SIPG's expensive imports Oscar and Hulk - signed for a combined total of 115 million euros ($137.55 million) - were relative bystanders for much of the game as Evergrande dominated from start to finish.

SIPG boss Andre Villas-Boas used the post-match press conference to go on somewhat of a rant, accusing Guangzhou Evergrande and the Asian Football Federation of a multitude of sins, including deliberately causing a auto crash in front of the SIPG team bus on the way to the game.

During a post-match interview, Villas-Boas criticised the referee's decisions after sending of two of his payers, as well as accusing rivals Guangzhou of "manipulating" the Asian Football Confederation (AFC).

During the extra-time, Shanghai's defender Wang Jiajie was sent off, but Hulk curled home a stunning free-kick to take the lead for the visitors again in the 108th minute.

Before the half break, Guangzhou nearly made it 3-0, only to see Ricardo Goulart narrowly miss the target in the 42nd minute. The 2015 MVP then scored with a diving header to cut the deficit to one goal with six minutes remaining. In injury time, he popped up again to score a header to pull Guangzhou level and extend the game into a tie-break which was full of drama.

SIPG reached the ACL semi-finals with a 5-4 penalty shootout victory after squandering a 4-0 lead from the first leg. The referee gives two red cards to our players.

However, Goulart would go from hero to villain after he missed Guangzhou;s opening penalty while all the rest of the takers would score to send Shanghai SIPG through.

Al Hilal will play the victor of the meeting between Al Ahli of Saudi Arabia and Iran's Persepolis, with the teams having shared a 2-2 draw in the first leg. After the first leg ended 2-2, Al Ahli were in the driving seat with the advantage of two away goals, but have seen Persepolis keep their incredible run going. However, their joy was shortlived as Kamal Kamyabinia received a straight red card for a challenge on Waleed Bakshwan in the 12th minute.

The teams, who met in the semi-finals a year ago when Al Ain emerged victorious, played out a scoreless draw in the United Arab Emirates last month, but Eduardo kept Al Hilal on track to claim their first continental title since winning the Asian Club Championship crown in 2000. Star striker Mehdi Taremi converted it promptly to lend some gloss to the scoreline.
