Wang Xiaolong scored the only goal in the 27th minute as Beijing recorded their seventh win from the opening 12 games of the season.

That is one less than Marcello Lippi's Guangzhou, but Beijing moved to within two points of the leaders, who were held to a 1-1 draw away to Shandong Luneng.

Peng Xinli's early goal looked as though it would be enough to secure victory, but Wang Yongpo equalised for the hosts with six minutes remaining.

Tianjin Teda drew 0-0 with Shanxi Zhongxin in Friday's other game.
