Rafa Benitez’s Dalian Pro side extended their unbeaten run to four Chinese Super League games on Monday, although they were disappointed not to rack up another win. Their game against Jiangsu Suning in the Dalian group of this coronavirus-impacted season ended in a 1-1 draw, thanks to the Nanjing side’s Miranda netting a late equaliser. The Brazilian headed home in the 81st minute to level Salomon Rondon’s emphatic solo goal in the 23rd minute, his seventh of the season. A win would have taken Benitez’s team into the top four of the group A table ahead of Shenzhen and Shanghai Shenhua, but the result leaves them sixth. Dalian’s next game is against Shanghai Shenhua on Monday. Dalian struggled in the early part of the season and a top four finish would be considered a success. The top four teams in each eight-team group progress to the championship round, while the bottom four move on to the relegation round. In other Dalian Pro news, the club announced the sale of winger Yannick Carrasco to Atletico Madrid on Tuesday. Tuesday’s other game saw Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s Guangzhou R&F end a three-match run of losses with a 3-1 win over Henan Jianye. Despite losing their record scorer Eran Zahavi, who is being linked with a move to Turkey’s Fenerbahce, the Guangzhou side scored three goals for only the second time this season. No-show Carrasco shows clubs pay attention to CSL – even if locals do not Israeli striker Dia Saba opened the scoring with a powerful header from a Renatinho centre before Henrique Dourado brought the scores level from the spot. Saba then added another before squaring for Ye Chugui to make the score 3-1 at half-time. Henan goalkeeper Wu Yan made sure that Saba was denied the matchball and Guangzhou a fourth goal in the second half. “We strictly followed the coach’s match plan. This is a victory that belongs to the whole team since we played our football,” Saba said after the game, relishing taking over the mantle from compatriot Zahavi. “As a forward, scoring goals is my responsibility.” Ighalo and Tevez show the route back to the big-time for CSL stars Despite a poor start to the season under the Dutchman, the win brings the team level on points with Dalian. Henan remain bottom of group A after 10 games of the 14-game mini-season.
