BEIJING, Sept. 29 (Xinhua) -- The 2020 Chinese Super League (CSL)'s first stage ended on Monday after two months and 112 games. With an unprecedentedly intense game schedule in a closed environment, some clubs are in trouble, but giants like Guangzhou Evergrande and Shanghai SIPG remain strong.
It seemed Liaoning would dominate the game again as they grabbed seven points in a row in the opening stage of the second set. However, Zhejiang then strengthened their blocking and gradually narrowed Liaoning's lead.
"To be honest, we've all been physically and mentally exhausted for more than 70 days, I think every player here is a hero," said Shandong Luneng coach Li Xiaopeng.
The significance of completing the whole first stage with no one from the closed living and training zone testing positive for the coronavirus cannot be understated. It should be noted that the Dailian Division even faced the threat of a local epidemic outbreak.
Jiangsu registered three-pointer shooting efficiency, with Gong Li and Liang draining shots beyond the arc on successive possessions to set up a 17-point advantage into half-time.
The club's new trio faces its first game next weekend when they travel to Champions League participant RB Leipzig.
