CSL Round 10 review: Attendance and all the goals

The upsets continue, including a loss for Evergrande, allowing everyone else to pick up points and chase them at the top. We’re now a third of the way through the season and the table is starting to take shape, with only four or five teams really in the race for the league title.

Beijing Guoan 2-1 Guizhou Renhe
Attendance: 35,986

Another great come from behind victory for Guoan at Worker’s Stadium, read all about it here.

Jiangsu Sainty 1-2 Changchun Yatai
Attendance: 28,985

A massive crowd in Nanjing watches the home side fall for the first time in over a year.

Shanghai Shenhua 0-0 Shanghai Shenxin
Attendance: 11,732

A dismal attendance for the return of the “Shanghai derby” and an equally boring game to match, both sides had chances, but Nicolas Anelka needs to lead by example if things are going to turn around for Shenhua. Read the report from Shanghai.

Tianjin Teda 2-0 Shandong Luneng
Attendance: 11,688

While they struggle in the ACL, Tianjin has done a decent job earning some victories in the Chinese Super League, once again it comes through Wang Xinxin. At the same time, Shandong is in trouble, currently stuck in the relegation zone.

Hangzhou Greentown 2-1 Liaoning Whowin
Attendance: 7,672

Perhaps Hangzhou’s Japanese manager has finally gotten a handle on the Chinese league, he’s finally getting his team to slowly move up the table.

Dalian Shide 3-1 Guangzhou Evergrande
Attendance: 7,682

What looks like a surprising upset for Dalian is mainly due to Evergrande sending their second team north to face Shide as the club focuses on this week’s ACL clash.

Qingdao Jonoon 1-3 Dalian Aerbin
Attendance: 7,216

Yu Dabao puts in a big performance as Aerbin lifts themselves out of the relegation zone, while their opponents Qingdao find themselves at the bottom of the table.

Guangzhou R&F 2-1 Henan Construction
Attendance: 4,831

Despite the pathetic crowd, R&F gained some ground on league leaders and local rivals Evergrande. Read what our man in Canton has to say.

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.
