Earlier on Sunday, Wissam Ben Yedder struck in each half as nine-man Monaco held on to overcome Strasbourg 3-2 at home. Right-back Ruben Aguilar added another for Niko Kovac's side in stoppage time of the first half.
The second half saw more frequent attacks and stronger defense from Shenzhen, who however had more shoots but less hit rate. With the advantage that Suning's defender Zhang Boyu was send off for a foul in the 62nd minute, Shenzhen still failed to equalize. Enditem

Fujian's form faded suddenly in the middle of the third set as Shanghai staged a 9-0 scoring run, including three points from serving. Shanghai then kept the huge lead until the set ended.
