Ten minutes later, Liao Lisheng gives Guangzhou a 2-nil lead with a fine strike from outside the area.

Guangzhou were awarded a penalty five minutes after the restart when Alan is brought down by Song Long in the area.

The Brazilian then converted it himself and it is three-nil.

Goulart then scored his second of the night, and his 19th of the season, midway through the second half to seal Guangzhou's 4-0 victory. Guangzhou will now try to complete the domestic double when they face Jiangsu Suning in next month's Chinese FA Cup final over two legs.

"As the senior team's coach, we should train more young players. We should give them more chances, and make full use of their potential ability," said Luiz Felipe Scolari, Guangzhou Evergrande Coach.

"The yongsters are in charge of the development of Chinese football in the future. In the meantime, I hope China can have matches specially designed for young players, for the ages of 16, 17 and 18. I am eager to see both the development of the CSL and youth league matches here.
