CSL: Capital side still yet to grab first home win


04-24-2016 13:10 BJT

To football right here in China, Beijing Guoan took on Liaoning Whowin at home in the Chinese Super League on Saturday night. The capital side has a disappointing start of the new season, as Alberto Zaccheroni's men had had only 4 points after 4 rounds and were still yet to win their first home match.

The Beijing fans' morale were boosted after their team beat Hangzhou on the road last Sunday, when Burak Yilmaz exhibited white-hot form, scoring 1 goal and contributed in the other two.

The Turkish international would lead his team again on Sunday. After 21 minutes, a superb pass from Renato Augusto finds Yilmaz in the area, whose shot goes beyond the crossbar.

Precise pass from Augusto but Yilmaz misses the target slightly.

Augusto would test the keeper himself in three minutes. His free kick also goes above the goal.

The visitors fight back in 5 minutes. Beijing defenders fail to clear this cross and Jin Taiyan would test Guoan keeper Yang Zhi with a slot, with no avail.

Yearning for their first home victory, Beijing would strike again in the 85th minute. Zhang Xizhe's cross finds Yilmaz who passes the ball unselfishly to Zhang Chiming. But the Chinese international's pass misses the target.

0-0 was final and Guoan is still yet to grab their first home win of the season.

Beijing 0 - Liaoning 0

Stoppage-time penalty saves point for leaders Suning

Also on Saturday, CSL leaders Jiangsu Suning visited Guangzhou R&F.

The hosts get their best chance in the first half in the 17th minute. Lu Lin's freekick goes to Jang Hyunsoo whose
slot was miraculously saved by keeper Gu Chao!

Then in the second half, referee Lin Liu spotted a Guangzhou handball in the penalty area in the 71st minute.

There was one - but the linesman had also spotted that three Jiangsu players were in offside positions when the cross was played in.

The brave decision by the official appeared the correct one. And the referee cancelled the penalty.

Guangzhou came into the fixture second-from-bottom of the Chinese Super League. But a scrappy 82nd-minute goal from Zeng Chao gave them a shock lead against the top side.

The Jiangsu keeper blocked the first shot, but was helpless with the 2nd.

The 91st minute - and a scintillating passage of play that heavily featured the woodwork ended in another penalty being awarded to Jiangsu.

This one appeared very harsh - the ball was struck fiercely at Fu Yunlong, who appeared to be trying to remove his arm from the path of the ball.

The protests were to no avail, and Jo slotted away the penalty to make it 1-1.

1-1 was how it ended. And Jiangsu is still at top of table with 14 points, only 2 points ahead of Guangzhou Evergrande, who will play Tianjin Teda tonight.

In the schedule for Sunday, bottom side Changchun Yatai will host Shanghai SIPG who boast great form in the AFC Champions League. Newly promoted Hebei Fortune visits Shanghai Shenhua. While Shandong Luneng travel to Shijiazhuang.
