Changchun thumps sorry Beijing

Beijing Guoan missed the chance to climb into third place in the Super League after crumbling to a 4-0 home mauling at the hands of Changchun Yatai.

Tianbao Cao's 18th-minute strike put Changchun ahead and then three more goals in the final 15 minutes from Santos Weldon, Dong Wang and Edixon Perea sealed a convincing victory for the visitor.

The result leaves Beijing in fourth place on 38 points, level with third-placed Guangzhou which faces Guizhou Renhe on Sunday afternoon (local time).

The day's other matches finished in draws, with the clash between Hangzhou Greentown and Shanxi Zhongxin failing to produce a goal while Dalian Shide was held 1-1 at home by Shandong Luneng.

Shandong took the lead with a 29th-minute penalty from Roda Antar but host Dalian drew level with a spot-kick of its own from Martin Kamburov just before the hour.
