07-17-2016 13:04 BJT

To begin with football from right here in China as the CSL's second placed team, Jiangsu Suning travelled to newly promoted Yanbian Fude on Saturday. Jiangsu were looking for three points against the underdogs, but Yanbian put together a great performance to prove they have the ability to dismantle a top team.

Yanbian came into the match sitting in the bottom half of the standings, but they have shown signs of bouncing back after winning two of their last four matches, including a draw against leaders Guangzhou Evergrande.

Against Jiangsu, Fude are more aggressive in attack and open the scoring four minutes into the second half. Kim Seung-Dae curls one past the keeper to make it 1-0 and give Yanbian hope of causing another big upset.

In the 68th minute, their consistent efforts pay off again. Following a corner kick, Babacarr Trawally scores with a diving header and it's 2-0 Fude.

The hosts seal the win 13 minutes from time. Suning pay the price for their sluggish defence in the match and Akbar Ahmetjan easily scores on the header from close range. Yanbian thrash Jiangsu 3-0 and climb to 10th place in the standings.

Capital Club win on own goal from Ding

Later in the day, Hebei Fortune hosted Beijing Guoan and the visitors get on the board inside the second minute, thanks to an own goal from Hebei's Ding Haifeng. Ding slips to the ground and clumsily flicks the ball into his own net. Guoan lead 1-0.

The hosts seek an equalizer and almost get one just before the break, but Jiang Ning's header is parried away by Beijing keeper Yang Zhi who makes the stop right on the goal-line. Guoan would hold a 1-0 advantage into half-time.

Fortune do create some chances in the second half but can't convert them into goals. In the 68th, Li Hang threatens with a fantastic volley, but Hou Sen, who replaced Yang after the break, would deliver a flying save to keep the ball out of the net. Beijing would hold on for a 1-0 victory. The Capital Club are now in eighth place in the standings, while Hebei drop to fourth.

In other matches on Saturday, Chongqing Lifan thrashed Henan Jianye 3-0. Guangzhou R&F edged Tianjin Teda 3-2 with Eran Zahavi scoring twice to take his tally to five goals in two matches since transferring to Guangzhou from Maccabi Tel Aviv. Graziano Pelle made his debut for Shandong Luneng, who missed out on a much needed three points in a 1-1 draw to Liaoning Whowin.
