Brazilian superstar and Shanghai SIPG player Oscar sparked massive brawl with Guangzhou R&F opponents this weekend during a Chinese Super League game.

The fight broke out at Yuanshen Stadium on Sunday after the former Chelsea midfielder kicked the ball twice into Guangzhou players near the end of the first half.
