Teda, who have beaten last season’s top three teams in a string of wondeful performances, had the opportunity to go ahead in the 14th minute. The ball here eventually reaching Carmelo Valencia, but the Colombian striker somehow fires the ball wide. And the first half ended goalless.
And it stayed that way until the 71st minute when the visitors had a free-kick, although you can’t see it from this camera angle. It’s swung in and Valencia is the one who gets the telling touch. Scoring his 11th goal in 10 matches, taking his tally to 14, putting him third among the leagues top scorers.
Guizhou had a last gasp effort in the dying minutes. But this header at the backpost is saved by the keeper over the bar. Tianjin beating last season’s fourth placed side 1-0 to escape the dreaded relegation.
