Shanghai SIPG hammered Chinese Super League rivals Guangzhou Evergrande 4-0 in the first leg of the AFC Champions League quarter-finals.
Hulk starred with a goal and two assists in Shanghai's rout of Guangzhou, who struggled without their star man Paulinho following the midfielder's €40million sale to Barcelona last week.
After dominating the opening stages of Tuesday's encounter, Shanghai made the breakthrough when they were awarded a penalty after 36 minutes, Zhang Linpeng having brought down striker Wu Lei in the box.
Hulk stepped up and hammered home a low strike to give the hosts the lead and score in his seventh successive AFC Champions League appearance for SIPG.
Shanghai extended their lead moments before half-time and Hulk was again involved, captain Wang Shenchao nodding in at the back post from a superb right-wing cross delivered by the Brazilian.
A third goal duly arrived after 62 minutes as Shanghai showed their dominance, Wu running on to a cute back-heeled pass from substitute Elkeson to hit a whipped 20-yard shot out of goalkeeper Zeng Cheng's reach. Photo and composition by @powersportimages#acl2017@theafchub#asia#china
