Guangzhou tops Cangzhou to keep Shandong in sight

Eight-time champion Guangzhou FC moved up to second in Group A of the Chinese Super League yesterday as goals from Gao Zhunyi and Yang Liyu secured a 2-0 win over Cangzhou Mighty Lions.

The win moves Fabio Cannavaro’s side to within three points of Shandong Taishan, leader of the Guangzhou-based group, and level on seven points with cross-city rivals Guangzhou City and Shenzhen FC. Earlier, Henrique Dourado scored the quickest goal of the season so far when he swept home Ke Zhao’s corner to give Henan Longmen the lead against Chongqing Athletic 45 seconds into the game. Chen Pu doubled Henan’s advantage nine minutes into the second half but, after Yang Shuai pulled one back for Chongqing, nine-man Henan collapsed to a 2-3 defeat.
