Beijing time last night, Shanghai SIPG defeated Shijiazhuang Yongchang 1-0 with Hulk's penalty. "Xinmin Evening News" believes that although winning is a happy thing, but facing the newly promoted to win so difficult, people feel a bit of a bone in the throat.
In this game, SIPG coach Pereira put in almost the strongest lineup. But in the face of Yongchang's tenacious defense, SIPG has no good solution. If it weren't for the opponent's accidental handball in defense, this game is likely to be another draw. Towards the end of the game, Yongchang attacked continuously in front of SIPG, and even got two or three chances to score in the penalty area. Thanks to Yan Junling's outstanding performance, the victory was finally saved.
"Xinmin Evening News" believes that winning the promotion is exhausting. Therefore, even if it wins, it is hard to say that SIPG played a good game. SIPG’s firepower is obviously a problem, and there have been no major victories of more than three goals (including three goals) in five games.
The newspaper said: Although SIPG has confirmed the top four qualifications of the group two rounds in advance, this does not mean that the team can sit back and relax. The next more difficult opponent is Beijing Guoan. If you want to make sure that the team is first, SIPG can at least not lose. However, comparing the recent status of Guoan and SIPG makes people feel a little worried.
