Chinese Football Association officials have asked world governing body Fifa for help in deciding the fate of Shanghai SIPG's Brazilian midfielder Oscar following last weekend's high-profile brawl. Shanghai's Fu Huan was also given a six game ban, while Guangzhou's Chen Zhizhao and Li Tixiang were given seven and five game bans respectively for their part in the incident.

During a CSL match between Oscar's Shanghai SIPG and Guangzhou on Sunday, the Brazil global appeared to deliberately kick the ball at two opposition players in quick succession.

Despite his actions not resulting in the referee stopping play, the Chinese Football Association have opted to punish the Brazilian for instigating the scenes which followed and he will now be sidelined until the middle of August. It was unclear whether they could accuse Oscar of violent conduct or not.

Oscar remained in Shanghai as an all domestic-based SIPG secured a place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup after edging out third-tier side Suzhou Dongwu 15-14 on penalties following a dramatic 1-1 draw on Wednesday.

The player was fined £4625 for his role in the brawl.

The fight disrupted the game for seven minutes.
