Guangzhou Evergrande Claims Chinese Super League Title

SHANGHAI – Guangzhou Evergrande, lead by Italian coach Fabio Cannavaro, won on Sunday the top soccer competition in China.

Evergrande sealed its eighth Super League title in nine years on the last game of the season, beating Shanghai Shenhua 3-0.

It has been a disputed season that has seen the team battle it out against Beijing Guoan, which trailed two points behind the champions.

Beijing Guoan, under the management of Bruno Genesio, beat Shandong Luneng on Saturday 3-2 in a nail-biting game that secured a victory with a goal in the last minute.

The win propelled the Beijing team to the top of the leaderboard until Sunday’s Evergrande victory.

On the last game of the 2019 season, Wei Shihao scored first, followed by Park Ji Soo and Brazilian player Elkeson, who this year was one of the first players to become a Chinese citizen.

In third place in the Super League was last year’s champion, Shanghai SIPG lead by Portuguese coach Vitor Pereira.

The team failed a repeat last year’s freak win which broke Evergrande’s long-standing winning streak.

Rafa Benitez’s team, Dalian Yifang, bid farewell to the season with a 2-0 victory against the Beijing Renhe and finished in ninth place (of 16).

A few days later the Chinese media warned of the possible departure of the Spanish coach from the club after the modest results.

The team, which has among its ranks foreign players like Belgian Yannick Carrasco, Venezuelan Salomon Rondon or Slovak Marek Hamsik, managed to bounce back with the arrival of Benitez in July when it was on the bottom rungs of the league table.
