Odion Ighalo scored his eighth goal of the season in Changchun Yatai’s 2-1 away win over Chongqing Lifan on game week 12 in the CSL on Tuesday.
The Chinese League had been on a two-month break as a result of the 2018 World Cup and resumed today with four matches played.
Chongqing Lifan took the lead through Seba in the sixth minute and their one-goal advantage lasted only thirteen minutes, with Ighalo volleying the ball into the back of the net.
An own goal from Yongzhe Cui put Changchun Yatai ahead in the 54th minute which eventually earned them their fourth win of the season.
Ighalo had at least two chances to score in the second half, his shot was parried by the goalkeeper before Changchun Yatai grabbed their winner and his lob went wide on 71 minutes.
