CSL: Cahill’s equalizer leaves Blue & White winless in last three


05-29-2016 15:50 BJT

Second place Jiangsu Suning hosting Hangzhou Greentown. The high priced Blue and White came into this contest with a nearly spotless home record -- 4 wins, 1 draw, and just 1 goal allowed -- and like the other clubs that have visited Nanjing this season, the Verdant Stripes would find it to be a very tough trip.

We pick up the action as the game heads into the 14th minute. Alex Teixeira crosses the ball in from near the touchline, and fellow Brazilian Jo thinks he has scored on the ensuing header. But the referee wastes no time declaring that he was offside. And another look confirms it.

13 minutes later Jo would get another chance, and this time the South American forward beats the keeper cleanly, making it 1-nil Jiangsu. He finds himself some space, and slots home his second goal of the season.

But the hosts let up on defense late in the match, and Tim Cahill's header ties the score at 1-all. That's the final, and Suning are winless in their last three games.

Saturday's other winners were fifth place Henan Jianye, and eighth place Yanbian Fude. Now let's look at today's schedule -- five-time defending champs Guangzhou Evergrande will host SIPG, and former teammates Dario Conca and Elkeson.

Shandong Luneng will entertain Beijing Guoan, Chongqing Lifan welcome Hebei Fortune, and Changchun Yatai are on the field right now -- seeking their second win of the year at Shijiazhuang Ever-Bright.
