This year ranked fourth in the Chinese Super League and the AFC fell into the dead group. Just when people were worried about SIPG’s AFC trip, they did not expect that Pereira’s third place in the Chinese Super League would have played the most beautiful Chinese Super League Big4. Football-first the first match was a 2-1 victory over the Australian Super League champion Sydney FC, and then today with the same score, beheading the K-League double champion Jeonbuk Hyundai. Lianke, the boss of the Korean-Australian League, domineering! .
On the group standings: Yokohama Mariner with 2 wins and 6 points ranked first First, SIPG ranked second with 6 points, and Jeonbuk Hyundai, which had 3 matches, 1 draw and 2 losses, ranked third with only 1 point. Finally, Sydney FC, like Jeonbuk Hyundai, but with more goals conceded in fourth.
The team of SIPG is strong. Sydney FC is the Australian Super League champion, Jeonbuk Hyundai is the K-League champion, Yokohama Mariners is the J-League champion, and SIPG is the third place in the Chinese Super League last year. In this dead group, and this year SIPG’s performance in the Super League was not very good, many people were sweating for SIPG’s AFC trip.
But the more you worry, the better SIPG will play. The victory over Sydney FC in the first game was a small test. This game against Jeonbuk Hyundai was the touchstone for SIPG. Unexpectedly, Pereira won by surprise, the starting lineup has three major foreign aids-Oscar + Hulk + Mui, only Lopez a foreign aid starting. What was more unexpected was that Shanghai SIPG actually broke the goal first, and Lu Wenjun made a single-handed calm push and shot.
After that, Jeonbuk pulled back a goal, and the two sides shook hands 1-1 in the first half. SIPG made an effort in the second half and was swept into the battle by the three major foreign players from Xuezang. It was precisely with Oscar's single-handed breakthrough to create a penalty, Hulk made a penalty. SIPG defeated his opponent 2-1 and won the AFC Champions League two consecutive victories. The success.
I have to admire Pereira’s arrangement. In the unlikely event that the opponent is defeated in the starting lineup, even if the main foreign aid is sent in the second half, it will be difficult to deal with it. But fortunately, SIPG won this game at the lowest cost. Winning the ball can also give the main foreign aid a certain rest, which can be described as killing two birds with one stone.
It is surprising that Jeonbuk Hyundai, after playing three group opponents, they actually lost 2 and 1 tie, which was unexpected to many people. Is this still the K-League hegemon and Jeonbuk Hyundai that won the AFC Champions twice? !
It should be pointed out that this Jeonbuk branch is in a general state, and it is difficult to pose a threat to SIPG. I am afraid SIPG will get rid of the group in advance. But in any case, SIPG accidentally revealed the AFC Champions' appearance. If he wins against the Yokohama Mariners, it will become the biggest favorite to win the AFC this season.
Interestingly, after the match, a reporter from Shuncai just asked about SIPG’s goal for the AFC Champions League. When asked whether SIPG will target the AFC Champions from now on, Lu Wenjun said that the team played team football and hoped to reach the final (final).
