Liaoning on brink of relegation after defeat to Shandong Luneng

Shandong Luneng kept their hopes of a place in next year's AFC Champions League alive with a 3-1 win over Liaoning Whowin on Friday.

Diego Tardelli, Papiss Cisse and Jin Jingdao found the net for Felix Magath's side before Wang Hao claimed a late consolation for Liaoning.

The result all but ensures Liaoning, who are bottom of the standings, will drop down into the second division.

A draw or better for 14th-placed Tianjin Teda against Beijing Guoan on Sunday would confirm the club's relegation.

Shandong moved up to fourth, three points behind Hebei CFFC.
