Shanghai International battled to a 2-2 draw with Sichuan Guancheng in the ninth round of the Chinese Super League in Chengdu yesterday.
Two headers from striker Kwame Ayew of Ghana and defender Zhao Zuojun in each half helped International to walk away with a point in heavy rain.
In other matches, it was: Liaoning Zhongshun 1, Beijing Hyundai 1; Shandong Luneng 1, Qingdao Bright 1; and Chongqing Lifan 1, Shenyang Ginde 0. Dalian Shide and Tianjin Taida's fixture was postponed until November as Shide prepares for an AFC Champions' League match at home tomorrow.
