Sco­lari leads Guangzhou to 6th straight China ti­tle

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

De­spite the hun­dreds of mil­lions of dol­lars spent by a grow­ing num­ber of Chi­nese Su­per League clubs in 2016, Guangzhou Ever­grande con­tin­ues to dom­i­nate, win­ning a sixth straight ti­tle on Sun­day.

Luiz Felipe Sco­lari made it two cham­pi­onships since ar­riv­ing in June 2015 as the club was held 1-1 by Yan­bian Funde but moved seven points clear of Jiangsu Sun­ing in sec­ond with two games re­main­ing.

Guangzhou has dom­i­nated most of the sea­son, helped by Brazil­ian in­ter­na­tion­als Paulinho, who scored against Yan­bian, and Ri­cardo Goulart, the league’s lead­ing scorer, as well as a num­ber of top Chi­nese play­ers.
