CSL Round 14 Weekend Wrapup

Here are all the highlights from this past weekend, some exciting matches and interesting results all around.  (Go here for Shaanxi-Beijing, and here for Shanghai-Nanchang).

Liaoning 0 – 0 Changchun

This “Dongbei Derby” ended scoreless, but looks like both sides had plenty of chances. It’s a shocking 8 draws in 13 matches for Changchun this year.

Tianjin 1 -1 Qingdao

It was almost a big victory for Qingdao that had this Guoan fan excited, but a late equalizer gives Tianjin the point they deserved in this tough match.

Shandong 2 – 0 Shenzhen

Antar gets one, Obina scores another late goal as Shandong cruise past Shenzhen.

Hangzhou 1 – 3 Guangzhou

Cleo gets one and sets up Muruqui on another and Gao Lin gets on the scoresheet as well to see Guangzhou go up 3-0, Bali (Bari Mamatil) gets a late goal to get Hangzhou on the board, but it’s too little too late. I’ve downplayed Guangzhou’s dominance this season as they haven’t beaten a top side other than Tianjin, this was a big win, especially on the road, and shows they are for real. That said, with Conca coming, which Brazilian is going to be the odd man out?

Jiangsu 4 – 0 Dalian

I hope we’ll see a match report for this one, Jiangsu runs wild all over Dalian, earning a much needed 3 points and moving them further away from the relegation zone.

Chengdu 0 – 2 Henan

In a relegation zone battle, Henan helped themselves out with a much needed 3 points, their first win of the year, in this one against Chengdu.

Brandon Chemers aka B. Cheng aka A Modern Lei Feng – is a name which may be familiar to many in the Chinese blogosphere. He currently serves as Editor-in-Chief for Wild East Football and is one of the lonely souls writing about Chinese football in English for the last 10 years. Chemers' credentials are second to none – his former blog focused not only on the fortunes of his beloved Beijing Guoan FC, but a multitude of other aspects of Beijing life. He’s deservedly built a reputation in the Chinese blogosphere as an insightful observer of not only Chinese football, but also the wider picture of life in modern China and its many layers. For WEF, beyond writing about Guoan, he often focuses on fan culture and the business of Chinese football.
