CSL Round 15: Attendance, highlights, and all the goals

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
Attendance: 12,098

A result that will satisfy both sides as they fight to stay in the middle of the table.

Qingdao Jonoon 1-0 Shanghai Shenhua
Attendance: 15,195

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
Attendance: 11,231

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
Attendance: 30,082

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
Attendance: 24,971

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
Attendance: 39,985

This one had everything a football fan can ask for (except a Beijing win according to this Beijing fan), read about it from a Beijing fan’s viewpoint or an Evergrande fan’s viewpoint.

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.
