CSL Round 6 Review: Attendance and all the goals

Four days of football saw controversial calls from Hong Kong referees in Beijing and Dalian, an empty bench in Shanghai, a brawl in Qingdao, and the two Guangzhou clubs remaining one-two in the table.

Beijing Guoan 2-1 Shandong Luneng
Attendance: 41,200

Another important win for Guoan, too bad they can’t keep this form on the road. For our full match report, go here.

Shanghai Shenhua 0-1 Tianjin Teda
Attendance: 11,200

Anelka was put in charge of the team, but unfortunately for Shenhua, the result stays the same, a disappointing home loss. For more on the goings on in Shanghai, go here.

Guangzhou Evergrande 3-1 Hangzhou Greentown
Attendance: 36,120

Evergrande cruise past Hangzhou and look a lot more like last year’s title winning side, Okada’s struggles continue.

Changchun Yatai 0-0 Guizhou Renhe
Attendance: 15,800

Changchun and Guizhou battle each other, and the pitch, but it ends up a nil-nil stalemate in the northeast.

Dalian Aerbin 1-0 Henan Construction
Attendance: 12,981

Henan held off Aerbin for over 90 minutes, but the Hong Kong referee gave a very controversial penalty kick in extra time which the home side converted, giving them their first ever Chinese Super League victory.

Guangzhou R&F 1-0 Dalian Shide
Attendance: 5,900

The “other” Guangzhou team squeezes past a struggling Shide team to keep their home win streak going and stay at the top of the table. Here’s a report from down south.

Qingdao Jonoon 2-1 Shanghai Shenxin
Attendance: 6,100

This match was marred by a late match brawl started by a Shenxin foreign player, but it didn’t matter, the home side came up with an important victory.

Jiangsu Sainty 1-0 Liaoning Whowin
Attendance: 24,760

The final match of the weekend was one of the best, an exciting fixture between the two remaining undefeated teams, with Jiangsu coming out on top. Here’s our report from Nanjing.

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.
