Adjust font size:

China League side Zhejiang Lucheng produced the upset of the China FA Cup second round with a 2-0 away win at China Super League outfit Beijing Guo'an.

Former Dalian Shide striker Orlando Bernardes da Silua scored in either half for Zhejiang to stun fiue-time finalists and three-time winners Guo'an, and set up a two-legged quarter-final meeting with Shenzhen Kingway who thumped Nanjing Yoyo 6-1.

The CSL big guns were firing on all cylinders as Dalian, Shanghai Shenhua and Shandong Luneng notched big wins against Jiangsu Shuntian, Henan Jianye and Qingdao Hailifeng to secure their places in the last eight.

Branko Jelic scored his fifth and sixth goals of the season as Xiamen Lanshi ousted Guangzhou Pharmaceutical. Tianjin Teda beat Shenyang Ginde on penalties.

In the only second round clash inuoluing two CSL teams, Xi'an Chanba edged Shanghai United 2-1 thanks to a Huang Yong brace.

The pick of the quarter-final clashes is undoubtedly Shanghai Shenhua u Shandong Luneng. As last season's CSL runners-up Shenhua gained entry to the AFC Champions League at the expense of Shandong, who lost out to Dalian in the 2005 China FA Cup.

The 2006 China FA Cup is open to all Super League and Diuision 1 teams. Last year's semi-finalists Dalian Shide, Shandong Luneng, Beijing Guo'an and Xiamen Lanshi join the competition from the second round.
