CSL Round 11 Review: Attendance and all the goals

Shanghai Shenxin 0-1 Hangzhou Greentown
Attendance: 12,359

The winning ways continued for Okada who seems to have found the right setup for Chinese football as Shenxin suffer a tough home defeat.

Dalian Aerbin 1-1 Jiangsu Sainty
Attendance: 15,061

An “only in the Chinese Super League” kind of match, worth watching the highlights and reading our match report. Aerbin keeper Yu Ziqian made a big penalty save and then proceeded to give Jiangsu a goal thanks to a brain fart. However, once again Aerbin get themselves a late penalty that guarantees they walk away with a point.

Guizhou Renhe 3-0 Guangzhou R&F
Attendance: 27,982

After a great start to the year, R&F has been struggling lately and things are the exact opposite for Guizhou, who have been steadily climbing up the table over the past few weeks.

Shandong Luneng 2-2 Dalian Shide
Attendance: 13,297

Park Dong-Hyuk scores a late equalizer to give Dalian a point and leading to more struggles for Shandong.

Henan Construction 1-0 Shanghai Shenhua
Attendance: 22,180

Anelka’s army struggles once again, including a youngster missing a sitter, while the far cheaper Christopher Katongo, a REAL team leader, gets the winner, his fifth goal of the season.

Liaoning Whowin 2-1 Tianjin Teda
Attendance: 18,675

A controversial late penalty was awarded to Liaoning and Zhao Junzhe handled it with ease. It was Li Weifeng who was guilty of the foul, one that honestly looked a little soft, but he and the other players wouldn’t let the referee forget it.

Changchun Yatai 0-1 Beijing Guoan
Attendance: 21,235

It was a big win for Guoan, who pick up their first away win in 2012 in fine fashion. Read the full report here.

Guangzhou Evergrande 1-0 Qingdao Jonoon
Attendance: 38,612

Guangzhou dominated the match, but struggled to break through the Qingdao defense. It was a Gao Lin header off a free kick that finally secured three points for Marcello Lippi in his Chinese Super League debut.

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.
