MADRID, Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- Real Madrid began the defense of their La Liga title with a 0-0 draw away to Real Sociedad on Sunday night in a game they controlled for long stretches but created few clear-cut chances.
In what was the first marathon that features most of the country's elite runners after the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, the 28-year-old Su from Yunnan paced a leading group of five runners, that included sub-2:10 runners Dong Guojian and Peng Jianhua as well as national champion Duo Bujie, to pass the 15-kilometer mark in 47:23.
The 23-year-old broke the deadlock in the 74th minute by thumping in a long-range effort after combining with Darlan Mendes.
"The Club has informed the relevant authorities and the player has been promptly placed in quarantine at home. All other team members and staff have tested negative," it added.
Both sides had chances in the first half, but all shooting attempts were of low quality. Wang Shenchao was fouled in the penalty area in 42nd minute, but the Shanghai defender was offside beforehand.
But Flamengo defended stubbornly thereafter to secure their third win from four matches.
Simona Halep, top seed of the women's draw, won her first title in Rome after defending champion Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic retired while trailing 6-0, 2-1 in the final. Enditem
Guangzhou still ranks first in the group, and will take on Dalian Pro in the group's last round.
Finally, Jaime Mata's second half goal saw Getafe start their season with a 1-0 win at home to Osasuna. Mata scored from close range and his goal was given after a VAR review, when he had looked offside. Enditem
