The match between Evergrande and China on the evening of October 16 caused a lot of controversy. The result of the match was Evergrande defeated China 3-1. Yin Hongbo opened the world record. Evergrande’s 20-year-old player Wu Shaocong scored the first goal of the Super League, and Wei Shihao made a point. + Goal, Exon made a penalty kick. The controversial point in this game is the referee Shi Zhenlu's penalty, and even some of the penalty can be said to be wrong.
The referee Shi Zhenlu of this game really caused a lot of controversy. From the 8th minute of the game, Taliscan fell to the ground after cutting in the penalty area. Shi Zhenlu did not express his dissatisfaction with Evergrande.
In the 17th to 20th minutes, Pan Ximing's handball in the penalty area was not awarded and Paulinho was tipped into the penalty area and did not give a penalty, which caused a lot of controversy, especially Talisca's curve kick Hitting Pan Ximing's hand did change the running route of the game. Shi Zhenlu did suspend the game, but he did not give a penalty after listening to VAR, which also made Talisca and others very dissatisfied. Previously, the Chinese Super League officially stated that the accuracy rate of VAR reached 97.5%!
In the first minute of the second half, Fernando's shot hit the Zhonghua Xia player, Shi Zhenlu gave it to the front, and Wei Shihao, who also just came on the bench, was very dissatisfied.
In the 74th minute, Paulinho fell to the ground in the penalty area, Pan Ximing blocked the foul with his leg, the referee still did not say.
I have to say that some of the penalties made by today’s head referee Shi Zhenlu and his referee team are indeed misjudgments. It’s no wonder that Evergrande feels “difficult to equalize”. What you need to know is that the second stage of the Chinese Super League is a cup competition system. In the two rounds of the game, no mistakes are allowed, including the referee, so such penalties should be as few as possible.
