After Dong Xuesheng's first-half opener for Hebei, Bakambu levelled terms for the Beijing outfit from the penalty spot in the 47th minute.

The former Villarreal and Bursaspor forward took his tally to 19 goals in as many league games to finish as the second highest African goalscorer in the Chinese top-flight behind Nigeria's Odion Ighalo [21].
