CHANGCHUN, Aug. 15 (Xinhua) -- Shanghai SIPG put an end to its four-game winless run after beating Tianjing TEDA 5-1 at home in the rescheduled 22nd round of 2019 Chinese Super League (CSL) on Wednesday.

Lyu Wenjun's close-range shot connecting Marko Arnautovic's pass broke the deadlock for the SIPG in the 10th minute, though eight minutes later Tianjin's Sandro Wagner scored the equalizer with a header.

Shanghai, however, added four in the second half through Arnautovic on 48 minutes and Li Shenglong, Cai Huikang and Odil Akhmedov in the final 20 minutes to seal the victory.

Also on Wednesday, Hebei China Fortune came back from behind to beat struggling Beijing Renhe 2-1, trashing Renato Augusto's early goal and pushing the capital side to the edge of relegation.

Shenzhen won 4-0 over Guangzhou. The very first victory under the reign of Italian coach Roberto Donadoni helped Shenzhen escape from the relegation zone temporarily, with two penalty goals after Guangzhou Fuli shown two direct red cards at the game.

In the other 22nd round rescheduled match on Tuesday, Jiangsu Suning beat Henan Jianye 3-0, extending home winning streak to three games after the rivals' Han Xuan was sent off for a foul on Alex Teixeira in the box.
