Croatian midfielder Franko Andrijasevic double fired at Guangzhou City to help Zhejiang FC pocket the first victory of the season, while Shanghai Shenhua cruised past Wuhan Yangtze River 2-0 in the fifth round of the Chinese Super League (CSL) on Monday.

Five minutes after the game kicked off, Andrijasevic bypassed Guangzhou City's goalkeeper Cheng Yuelei to send the opener into the net. 18 minutes later, Cheng Jin volleyed another goal for Zhejiang, while Andrijasevic scored a brace in the 31st minute to nail the first half 3-0.

Zhejiang further extended the lead in the 49th minute, as Donovan Ewolo turned onto Zhang Jiaqi's pass and shot the ball high into Cheng's right corner. Guangzhou City pulled one goal back four minutes later with Zhang Gong's curled pass. In the 75th minute, Li Tixiang helped Guangzhou City cut the deficit to 4-2.

Elsewhere, in the game between Shanghai Shenhua and Wuhan Yangtze River, Zhu Jianrong broke the deadlock for Shanghai in the first half's stoppage time. In the 71st minute, Alexander N'Doumbou turned another free-kick into a goal to seal the game 2-0.

In the other two games on Monday night, Changchun Yatai and Henan Songshan Longmen played out a goalless draw. Meanwhile, Chengdu Rongcheng also held Meizhou Hakka to 0-0.
