CSL Round 3 Review: Attendance and All the Goals

Another great weekend of football in the books. Guangzhou Evergrande continued their league home streak going 12 matches without a loss, Hangzhou scored their first goal of the season (and get their first win), 19 year old Pei Shuai scored a beautiful goal, Henan lost their third straight, and there was a total of 26 goals. Overall average attendance for the round was 16,400.

Shanghai Shenxin 0 – 0 Guizhou Renhe
Attendance: 5,084

The derby of the two teams that moved in the offseason was a ho hum affair, a boring 0-0 draw and fans failing to make the trip to Jinshan.

Liaoning Whowin 3 – 3 Changchun Yatai
Attendance: 15,324

The Dongbei derby wasn’t short on goals, for a full report, check out our View From the Northeast.

Zheng Long opens the scoring for Qingdao, but a brace by Martin Kamburov leads Dalian to victory over the club from down the coast.

Shandong Luneng 3 – 3 Dalian Aerbin
Attendance: 28,117

With five goals in the first 15 minutes, including Yu Dabao’s first for Aerbin, this was an exciting match from the start, with Aerbin leading 3-2, Obina found an equalizer in the second half to give both teams a point.

Brandon Chemers aka B. Cheng aka A Modern Lei Feng – is a name which may be familiar to many in the Chinese blogosphere.

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.
