Lots of action in the Taiwan league


During the lockdown, the Taiwan league got more attention than expected but with football around the world now returned here at the Tofu Bowl we have not forgotten about the Taiwanese Premier League. You should also not forget it as it is full of action and last weekend was no different as we saw 20 goals in four matches. 

All the action 

Last weekend we saw the eleventh round of matches in the league with plenty of action to be found across the games with them all stream simultaneously on YouTube.

The first one to look at saw Hang Yuan take on Ming Chuan University as Hang Yuan look to keep in the title race against a side who are still in a relegation battle with Red Lions finding form. 

As is common in Taiwan before the match we saw heavy rain but the game did still go ahead and it did not start well for the university side as Peng-Lung Hsieh was forced off injured after 11 minutes.

The home side then took control as they looked the more organized and dangerous in attack. This was clear to see when on 33 minutes the Japanese player Atsushi Shimono put his side, Hang Yuen, into the lead. 

The game was then 1-0 at the break but as the rain returned things got worse for the away team as Hao-Yu Lan was shown a red card for his second booking of the match on 50 minutes. 

Despite the man advantage, it took till the 90th minute for Hang Yuen to double their advantage as they won the game 2-0 thanks to a second from Brazilian Luan Andderson.

Following on from this we saw Taiwan Steel inflict more misery on Taichung Futuro as they defeated the title chasers 1-0.

The only goal in this match came from a free-kick from that fell kindly at the feet of Benchy. This was to be a key goal and is a big win for Taiwan Steel who so far have been inconsistent. 

Then after the match, the Taiwan Steel head coach added: “Our players have completed their work in this game, in order to win but our play in front of the goal is where we need to work harder." 

Elsewhere we then saw a goal fest as Taipower defeated Red Lions 5-4 as the Red Lions continue to improve. 

This was a match full of action and one in which the Red Lions nearly inflicted a huge shock in. Then in the final match from the weekend we saw Tatung defeat National Taiwan University 7-1.
