Tianjin Jinmen Tigers came from behind to beat Shenzhen FC 3-2, claiming their third win in a row in the seventh round of the 2022 Chinese Super League (CSL) on Wednesday.

Shenzhen forward Hao Lin opened the scoring in the ninth minute with a low drive near the box, before Ba Dun of Tianjin scored a follow-up equalizer in the 21st minute after his teammate's volley was denied.

Only five minutes later, Xu Yue's powerful long-range volley helped Shenzhen make the lead to 2-1. After the interval, Ba stood up again, scoring a brace in the 60th minute with a tap-in to haul themselves level. However, Tianjin sealed the win in the 66th minute, as Slovenian striker Robert Beric was clean through on goal.

"It's a tough game and I'm very happy to see that we are more mature on both the offensive and defensive ends. I hope we can keep the morale and get better," said Tianjin head coach Yu Genwei.

Also on Wednesday, Zhun Chenjie of Shanghai Shenhua missed a penalty in the 82nd minute, while Cherif Ndiaye of Shanghai Port FC leveled the game 1-1 with a composed buzzer-beating penalty in the 90th minute.

"It's no big deal and Zhu will continue to convert penalty in the future, and we have done a good job today," said Shenhua head coach Wu Jingui.

Despite Rade Dugalic's own goal in the 46th minute, Meizhou Hakka thrashed the Cangzhou Mighty Lions 4-1, while Changchun Yatai drew with Zhejiang FC 1-1.
