Zhao Peng rose to prominence when he was part of the team that helped Henan Jianye win promotion to the Chinese Super League after winning the second tier. The following season saw Zhao play an integral part in the Henan team that saw them fight against relegation throughout much of the season, eventually aiding them in a twelfth-place finish. The following season would see Zhao help establish Henan within the league and by the 2009 league season he would display some impressive performances for Henan that placed the club in their highest ever position of third and entry to the AFC Champions League for the first time.
Along with Yi Teng and Zeng Cheng, Zhao transferred to Guangzhou Evergrande for a fee of ¥20 million on 1 January 2013. On 10 May 2013, he made his debut for Guangzhou in a 3-0 away victory against Shanghai Shenhua, coming on as a substitute for Rong Hao in the 77th minute. He failed to establish himself within the team and spent most of his time in the bench. On 16 June 2014, Zhao was loaned to fellow top tier side Changchun Yatai for the rest of the 2014 season. However, he didn't make any appearances for Changchun that season due to lingering injuries.
Zhao made his debut for the Chinese national team in a 1-1 draw against Germany on 29 May 2009. He would play in several further friendlies and even score his first goal in a 4-1 win against Botswana on 30 September 2009.
