RIO DE JANEIRO, Sept. 2 (Xinhua) -- Uruguay international midfielder Giorgian de Arrascaeta netted a brace as reigning champions Flamengo beat Bahia 5-3 in Brazil's Serie A championship on Wednesday.
There were also second round wins for fourth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece, fifth seed Alexander Zverev of Germany and seventh seed David Goffin of Belgium.
"His ability to see space, time his movements and read the game will really complement the qualities that we have in midfield and his arrival really strengthens the depth of talent we have in that position," Solskjaer told the club website.
"There have been other instances where we have tried to go but the club won't allow it, or they've done something. I want to play football, I am still motivated to play football, so I guess it's on the club. They are in control of everything. I have a contract, all I can do is carry on what I am doing and hopefully something comes up," said Bale. Enditem
The win meant Qingdao continue to lead the overall standings, although second-placed Ruichang Biyuan also cruised to a victory, beating second from the bottom team Anhui Souyu 4-1 later in the day.
"I was really focused each game and each point. Especially against top players, one point can make the difference. So I had to stay very calm and keep going," the world number 50 added.
