BEIJING, Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- Chengdu Better City edged off Inner Mongolia Zhongyou 2-0 on Sunday to pocket its fifth straight win in China League One, the second-tier football league in China.
The Pole had a perfect season to score 55 goals in 47 matches, leading the Bavarians to win the treble of German Bundesliga, German Cup and UEFA Champions League. He was also top scorer in both the Bundesliga and the Champions League.
Bayern increased the pace and eventually halved the deficit in the 36th minute when Joshua Kimmich curled the ball from 16 meters into the top right corner.
The race was suspended on lap 8 of 30 following a crash involving Luca Ghiotto and Jack Aitken, who tangled and span into the barriers at high speed.
Alcacer then showed neat footwork halfway through the second half to ensure the points for Villarreal and leave Alaves in trouble.
"We kept Bayern at distance and finished off our fast breaks. Moreover, we fought as a team on the pitch. This is why we won today," Hoffenheim goalkeeper Oliver Baumann said.
Chongqing broke the deadlock in the 37th minute. After receiving a free kick from midfielder Huang Xiyang, Marcelo Cirino flicked a header to Yuan, who converted another header to make it 1-0. The linesman rose his flag immediately for offside, but the referee judged the goal was valid with the assist of the VAR.
Ranking first in the event's preliminary heat in 2:10.25, Qin Haiyang from Shanghai didn't advance to the final as he failed to finish in the top eight in a series of physical tests - a new requirement for this year's championships.
Ibrahima Niane scored in the 71st minute to give Metz the lead, but midfielder Morgan Sanson's goal in stoppage time saved the game for the hosts.
