Jiangsu goes top in Group A as Evergrande slumps

Jiangsu Suning FC defeated Guangzhou R&F 2-0, thanks to Alex Teixeira’s double, in the fourth round of the 2020 Chinese Super League in Dalian, northeastern Liaoning Province, last night.

Suning achieved a 17-round cross-season undefeated streak and reached the top of Group A on 12 points, following defending champion Guangzhou Evergrande’s shock 0-1 loss to Shandong Luneng earlier in the Dalian bubble. Guangzhou R&F, meanwhile, has conceded 11 goals since the opening game of the season without any victory. Substitute Guo Tianyu scored the winner for Shandong just one minute after coming off the bench in the second half while Evergrande’s Brazilian midfielder Paulinho saw his late equalizer ruled out for offside. Evergrande had won all three of its matches before yesterday’s game while Luneng had only managed one win since the new season started. Evergrande now trails Jiangsu by 3 points. Luneng is third in the eight-team group on 7 points with R&F last on 1 point.
