We’ve been slacking with this post for awhile now, but its the halfway point and it’s time to get back on track. With 1 playing 2 and 3 playing 4, this past week was one of the more exciting weeks we’ve seen and its only amping up expectations for the second half of the season. Here goes…
Shanghai Shenxin 0-0 Liaoning Whowin
Attendance: 12, 522
Not the best way to start an exciting weekend of football in front of one of the biggest crowds that has made it out to Jinshan this season.
Dalian Aerbin 1-1 Hangzhou Greentown
A result that will satisfy both sides as they fight to stay in the middle of the table.
Qingdao Jonoon 1-0 Shanghai Shenhua
A bit of a shocker in Qingdao, Shenhua are stuck licking their wounds once again after a weak performance, read our Shenhua correspondent’s report.
Changchun Yatai 1-1 Tianjin Teda
Both of these sides are hoping to go places, but they could each only manage a point out of this one. Changchun opened up scoring in the first minute of the second half, but a well taken shot off a nice free kick was enough to equalize things.
Guizhou Renhe 2-0 Dalian Shide
Guiyang’s been a difficult place to go this season, massive crowds and a home team that loves to score. Qu Bo opened things up with a nice first half goal and the team added another in the second to maintain their home dominance.
Jiangsu Sainty 3-1 Guangzhou R&F
Jiangsu suffered a surprising midweek cup loss, but their eyes are still on the most important prize, after beating Guoan the week before, they hosted R&F and cruised to a victory that sees them jump ahead into second place and keep pressure on the leaders.
Guangzhou Evergrande 3-2 Beijing Guoan
