SUZHOU - Romain Alessandrini scored twice as Qingdao Huanghai swept Tianjin Teda 3-0 in the 13th round of the Chinese Super League (CSL), while Shanghai SIPG secured the top spot of Suzhou Division with a 1-0 victory over Beijing Guoan Friday evening.

The victory ended Huanghai's seven-game losing streak across all competitions while Teda remained winless in all 13 league matches this season, which put coach Wang Baoshan under growing pressure to restore the team's form.
