WATCH: Ex-Chelsea star Oscar misses TWO penalties for Shanghai SIPG

Shanghai SIPG's marquee player Oscar had a night to forget in the Asian Champions League on Tuesday.

The former Chelsea midfielder missed two penalties as Shanghai lost 1-0 to Urawa Red Diamonds in Saitama in Group E of the Asian showpiece competition.

Oscar's compatriot Rafael Silva had scored for the Japanese team on the stroke of half-time before things went from bad to worse for the Chinese visitors.

Oscar won the first penalty himself after a foul from Yosuke Kashiwagi before seeing his well-struck effort palmed onto the crossbar by Urawa keeper Shusaku Nishikawa.

The 25-year-old then stepped up again after a handball in the box only to blast his 12-yard attempt well wide of the mark, much to the delight of the home supporters.

The result has SIPG sitting second on the table with three wins and a loss from their four group stage matches, behind Urawa only on goal difference.

FC Seoul and Western Sydney Wanderers are third and fourth respectively after the South Koreans won 3-2 in Australia.
