Sydney FC were paid to pay for missed opportunities as their AFC Champions League campaign made a losing start in Qatar on Thursday evening..
Li Shenglong’s double for Chinese giants Shanghai SIPG, whose team included American football star Aaron Moi, secured a 2-1 victory over Blues Sky. .
The loss brought Sydney down to the bottom of Group H, and the A-League champions have a lot of work ahead of them in their three remaining group matches if they want to finish first and second and advance to the knockout stages..
But it could have been a much better night for Sydney, who should have taken a 3-0 lead in the first quarter of an hour.
Speedster Trent Buhagiar took the lead behind the Shanghai defense before placing a square ball in the path of teammate Costa Barbaros.. .

But with goalkeeper Chen Wei the only one to beat, the New Zealand international hit his shot and failed even to hit the target.. .
But the roles were reversed and the result was much happier for Sky Blues after three minutes.
Barbarouse was this time the provider, as Buhagiar ran into the pass and placed his shot into the top corner of the net to give the Aussie a 1-0 lead.
Sydney continued their attack, and it was the only woodwork that prevented them from doubling their lead in the 14th minute when a header from defender Ben Warland slammed into the post. .
The rebound hit of Sky Blues midfielder Paulo Retri, whose shot hit the crossbar..
Not surprisingly, it was Moi who put the ball on to score the equalizer for Shanghai, as Lee was shown a header in the 63rd minute..
Sydney’s loss was exacerbated by bidding farewell to goalkeeper Thomas Hayward Bell in stoppage time, who was deputizing for unavailable Andrew Redmayne. .
In a moment of mind, Hayward-Bell sprinted from his penalty area and grabbed the ball, giving the referee no choice but to send him off.
