SHANGHAI: Paulinho scored twice for top-of-the-table Guangzhou Evergrande in a 3-1 victory on Wednesday but the Chinese Super League title race will go to the final day of the season. Fellow Brazilian Anderson Talisca also netted in a comfortable win at Javier Mascherano’s Hebei China Fortune but Beijing Guoan thrashed Guangzhou R&F 4-1 away to set up a nerve-wracking finale to the campaign on Sunday. Fabio Cannavaro’s Evergrande are two points clear of Beijing and will host mid-table Shanghai Shenhua with one hand on their eighth league crown. Bruno Genesio’s Beijing, the only side that can catch them, must beat fourth-placed Shandong Luneng at home and hope Evergrande slip up. Talisca, who scored a brace for Cannavaro’s side against reigning champions Shanghai SIPG in last weekend’s pivotal 2-0 victory, was at it again on 12 minutes at Hebei. The 25-year-old attacking midfielder took the ball on his chest close to the penalty spot and swivelled, firing the ball low and left-footed into the bottom corner.
