Here’s a round-up of video highlights from the Chinese Super League’s round 18 games – more then a few shock results on show this week – enjoy.
Chengdu Blades 2-2 Changchun
Good comeback from Changchun against thier lowly oponents. Sloppy defending the order of the day in this game.
Shandong 1-1 Tianjin
Quite a big clash between two sides chasing an Asian Champions League berth, and a match seemingly full of controversial decisions.
Henan 1-0 Shaanxi
Henan pull themselves away from the relegation zone with a hard fought victory against the men from Xian. Don’t miss the hands-in-the-air uplifting trance anthem backing music in this reel.
Shenzhen 2-0 Shanghai Shenhua
An unexpected 3 points for Shenzhen and yet another horrifying result for Shenhua fans to stomach. When will their incompetance end?
Liaoning 2-4 Jiangsu Sainty
A stunning away victory for the Nanjing side who are without doubt the Chinese Super League’s form team at the moment, as ‘s Kenneth reveals. Liaoning still in third place after this result however.
Qingdao 3-1 Hangzhou Greentown
Yet another surprise result in round 18, this time its Qingdao bum rushing the show – they leapfrogged their opponents Hangzhou, who represented China in the ACL earlier this season, to move into 9th place. Don’t miss their first goal – lovely lob from the edge of the box.
Nanchang 1-0 Dalian
Again a surprising outcome, a penalty for Nanchang sees them score, and drag fallen giants Dalian into the relegation mire.
Beijing 1-1 Guangzhou
The game of the season lived up to the hype, a massive Gongti crowd saw first versus second share the spoils. Guangzhou look pretty ordinary despite their huge investment on the field, Beijing probably the better team and for the first time in history, had the rest of the Chinese Super League behind them willing them to victory. That wasn’t to be sadly, but don’t miss Bcheng’s match report.
