Bakambu was on target for Beijing Guoan in a 2-1 win at Jiangsu Suning in the Chinese Super League season on Sunday.

The DR Congo international scored in the second half as Guaon recorded their first win of the 2018 campaign. They had lost their maiden game of the season.

Roger Schmidt, the Guoan head coach, reflected on his side’s victory.

“We adjusted our line-up and we benefited from these changes,” he told SCMP website.

“We controlled the match at both ends. We need to take each game one-by-one, but for now everything shows that we are on the right track.”

Bakambu joined the club on a long-term deal from Spanish side Villarreal last month. The transfer fee paid was reported as €74 million which would constitute an African transfer record.

Guoan will now take on Dalian Yifang in their next league game at the Jinzhou Stadium on Friday.
