Tonight, Guangzhou Evergrande and Beijing
In the match between Evergrande and Guoan, Fernando won a penalty in the penalty area in the first half. Talisca made a penalty and Evergrande took the lead in 37 minutes. At the end of the first half, Guoan attacked into the Evergrande penalty area. Wu Shaocong's defense was questioned by Guoan players for a foul. When the game entered a dead-ball state, 4-5 Guoan players immediately surrounded the South Korean referee Jin Hekun to protest. The chief referee also immediately contacted the video referee team, after which the video referee kept communicating.
The Evergrande players on the field did not approach the referee to defend. Cannavaro, who was standing on the sidelines, looked at the communication between the referee and the video referee team and seemed to be nervous immediately. The Italian marshal immediately yelled from the sidelines, and then kept pointing at Park Zhizhu. The Evergrande players immediately understood what the head coach meant, and ran over to let Park Zhizhu go to defend himself with the referee. The South Korean defender ran to the compatriot referee and gestured continuously, indicating that Evergrande’s defense had not fouled at all. In the end, after the head referee Jin Xikun communicated with the video referee team, he also believed that Evergrande's defense was no problem.
