Last season’s Chinese Super League runners-up kept up their 100 per cent record to the delayed 2020 season with a 3-1 win over Tianjin Teda on Thursday night. The near neighbours were more than 1,000km from home for the season’s first Jing-Jin derby thanks to the CSL’s coronavirus prevention measures but it was business as usual behind closed doors in Suzhou. The score a repeat of their last meeting in the CSL last October. Bruno Genesio’s side took the lead after 39 minutes through new signing Alan Carvalho, the Brazilian-born newly naturalised Chinese forward on loan from champions Guangzhou Evergrande. Alan, who spent last season on loan at now defunct Tianjin Tianhai, calmly rounded Teda keeper Teng Shangkun and slotted home from an incisive Jonathan Viera through pass. Uli Stielike’s side drew level just after the hour when Rong Hao ripped a shot past Guo Quanbo from well outside the box. Rong had scored a fortuitous equaliser against Shijiazhuang Ever Bright in the last game but there was no question about this. However, the 2010 champions, who recorded their highest CSL points total in finishing second last season, retook the lead through Zhang Xizhe with a little over 10 minutes left. Eran Zahavi’s 100th Guangzhou R&F goal saves point as Kim Shin-wook snatches Shanghai Shenhua win There was a touch of good fortune about that as a Nico Yennaris pass missed Renato Augusto to find an unmarked Zhang through on goal where he made no mistake. The scoreline was given added gloss with a Lan Jingxuan own goal after a Yu Dabao cross-shot cannoned in off the defender following a corner. Despite the disappointment, the German will have been happier than when the side’s met in preseason which Guoan won 5-0 in June. In the other game, Shanghai SIPG took on CSL newcomers Qingdao Huanghai. The China League One champions announced new manager Wu Jingui earlier this week and the former Shanghai Shenhua boss got off to a great start. It was 0-0 at half-time and the 2018 champions saw this season’s 100 per cent record in further jeopardy after China under-23 defender Wei Zhen saw red in the 65th minute. Qingdao then took a shock lead through a Wang Dong penalty on 71 minutes but SIPG’s blushes were spared when they were given a penalty of their own with two minutes left of normal time. Oscar scored it to keep the unbeaten record alive but Beijing Guoan look down on them from the top of group B, along with Guanghzou Evergrande as the only teams with perfect starts to the season.
