Beijing goes close in CSL stalemate with Guangzhou

Beijing Guoan hit the woodwork twice but was unable to find a breakthrough as Bruno Genesio’s side was held to a 0-0 draw by champion Guangzhou Evergrande in the first leg of their Chinese Super League playoff semifinal last night.

Renato Augusto and Cedric Bakambu both hit the woodwork in the final 20 minutes of an impressive first half display by Beijing while Jonathan Viera also went close in the dying seconds of the first 45 minutes. The two teams face off again in the second leg on Monday, with the winner meeting either Jiangsu Suning or Shanghai SIPG in the final. Earlier in the day, Jordi Cruyff’s Shenzhen FC moved a step closer to avoiding relegation with a 1-0 win over Shijiazhuang Ever Bright in the first leg of their playoff. John Mary scored the only goal of the game in stoppage time to leave Cruyff’s side needing a draw when the teams meet again in the second leg on Monday.
