Shanghai Port condemned Beijing Guo'an to second defeat in two CSL games while Hebei FC won 1-0 over Dalian Pro.

SUZHOU, China, April 28 (Xinhua) -- Shanghai Port beat Beijing Guo'an 3-1, while Hebei FC forced a 1-0 victory over Dalian Pro in the Chinese Super League (CSL) here on Wednesday.

Brazilian striker Ricardo Lopes scored the opener after just 46 seconds for Shanghai after receiving a superb pass in the box from midfielder Aaron Mooy.

An error from Guoan's Li Lei then allowed Lopes in to score Shanghai's second in the 3rd minute.

Guoan pulled one back in the 21st minute, when Jonathan Viera slotted home after good work from Cedric Bakambu.

In the second half, Shanghai extended their lead in the 80th minute when Lyu Wenjun converted a header at the back post from Wang Shenchao's cross.

In Wednesday's other game, Hebei's Brazilian striker Marcao came close to scoring with a low shot in the 22nd minute, but the ball hit the post and bounced away.

Dalian captain Zhao Xuri handled the ball in the box on 74 minutes, and Marcao converted the resultant penalty for Hebei.
