Hao Wei's side entered the match with three wins from four matches and they kept up their good form with an impressive victory at the TEDA Football Stadium.

After a goalless first half, Brazilian Davi opened the scoring for Guangzhou R&F on 49 minutes before the side doubled their advantage almost immediately from the restart through Rafael Coelho.

Dutch forward Sjoerd Ars added a late consolation for Tianjin Teda.

Meanwhile, Argentine midfielder Dario Conca's 44th-minute equaliser saw Guangzhou Evergrande take a point in a 1-1 draw against Guizhou Renhe.

Zlatan Muslimovic gave the away side the lead with a goal in the 20th minute before Conca stepped up to convert a penalty just before half-time, as Guangzhou Evergrande took outright second on the table.

In Sunday's final match, Beijing Guoan and Dalian Shide played out a goalless stalemate.
