To regain the AFC Champions League, Evergrande still has a lot to do
In the second round of the AFC Champions League quarter-finals, which ended on Wednesday night, Guangzhou Evergrande drew 1-1 with Kashima Antlers to advance to the AFC Semifinals with a breakthrough advantage.The outside world generally believes that Guangzhou Evergrande will launch an impact on the third AFC Champion, but the former “Chinese Super League Overlord” is no longer what it used to be. If they want to rise to the top of Asia again, they still have much to do.In retrospect, it is not easy to return to the semifinals after 4 years. Since 2012, Guangzhou Evergrande has not missed the AFC Champions League for eight seasons.In 2013 and 2015, Evergrande won two AFC championships under the direction of Lippi and Scolari, respectively, and carried the Chinese Super League flag on the AFC championship.Against Kashima Antlers, Talisca scored a key away score.Figure / Sports, but due to new and old changes, team internal adjustments and other reasons, Evergrande’s dominance in the Super League and AFC games in recent years has not been as good as before.Last season ‘s league champions fell to Hong Kong, and in the AFC Champions League, the former Evergrande, who had swept the entire North Modern Hyundai 5 to 1 away, also stumbled: the 2016 season, the team broke the group stage; 2017 season,Evergrande met Shanghai and Hong Kong in the quarter-finals and was eliminated by opponents through a penalty shootout; last season, Evergrande again met the “Chinese Super Derby” after qualifying. This time they were stopped in the 1/8 final.Tianjin Quanjian.2018 became the “dark season” of Evergrande.After eliminating Kashima Antlers, Guangzhou Evergrande finally returned to the AFC Final Four after four years.The outside world used “wind and rain but not standing” to describe their promotion this season.Indeed, they played extremely thrilling in the group stage, and finally broke into the knockout stage as the second group; 1/8 knockout face Shandong Luneng, Evergrande won the thrilling game with a penalty shootout; two with the defending champion Kashima AntlersThe round is more difficult.Before the quarter-finals kicked off, the two Super League teams were originally favored by Shanghai Shanggang.Opponent Urawa wore a “Super League nemesis” hat in the AFC Champions League game on Wednesday, can no longer be included in the young coach Cannavaro’s adventure, 39-year-old Zheng Zhi is desperately, this game sceneNot good-looking, but a 1 to 1 result can ensure that Evergrande is promoted.This is a heartbreaking score for Shanghai Shanggang. Just one day before Evergrande was promoted, they were eliminated by their opponents with the same score against Pingpu and Red Diamonds.Urawa Red Diamonds also eliminated Shanghai-Hong Kong with an away budget advantage.Figure / Osports Urawa Red Diamonds are fighting for relegation in the domestic league of Japan, but they also won the AFC championship twice. They showed a completely different state and record in the AFC championship.The two Super League teams in Beijing Guoan and Shanghai Shanggang should have the most experience-the Guoan group stage met the Urawa Red Diamonds. At that time, Schmidt’s team played the Puhe Red Diamonds in the sports team.In the away game, the side that did not fight back became Guoan, Urawa won 3-0; Shanggang met this team in the quarter-finals, 2-2 at home and 1-1 at awayThe score made Pereira’s team face the disadvantage of the away scoring apprentice Hu Nai.It is worth mentioning that Urawa has scored 6 wins and 2 draws against the Chinese Super League team in the main scene of Saitama. The hat of “Chinese Super League Nemesis” has been worn firmly.Compared with Guoan and Shanghai-Hong Kong, Evergrande has the advantage of scoring first and second before facing the Puhe Red Diamonds in the semi-finals.Evergrande’s two goals at home and away at home ended in a defeat. This time, the goal draw may be a more realistic goal for Cannavaro.As long as the score can be scored away, Evergrande’s final goal of rushing to the AFC Champions League at home will be achieved.The Cannavaro Air Force avoids the topic of the AFC Champions League. This kind of “saving character” is very practical. The problem now is to break into the Puhe first.In addition, according to the schedule of the Super League, after the end of the 25th round of the league on September 22, the Super League will enter the intermittent period again, and the 26th round of the game will start on October 18.The first round of the AFC semifinal match between Evergrande and Urawa Red Diamonds was on October 2nd. How to adjust the status of the players in the intermittent period so that they can overcome this tough battle is also needed by Cannavaro.problem.The most critical test to adjust the status of foreign aid is to once again carry the Chinese Super League flag on the AFC Champions League. Of course, the outside world hopes that Guangzhou Evergrande can go further.People have come up with a lot of “laws”, hoping that future games will verify this, just as Evergrande will win the semi-finals; if the Urawa Red Diamonds have caused too much trouble for the Chinese Super League, but Evergrande is also “J”League nemesis”-they have met the Japanese team seven times in the knockout and all eliminated their opponents.And in the record of 30 games against the Japanese team, Evergrande has the upper hand with 13 wins, 10 draws and 7 losses.It is just that there is a difference between expectations and reality. There is no possibility of “lie win” in the AFC Champions League.If you want to make a final impact, the first test is the adjustment and use of Cannavaro’s foreign aid status.In the double-line match between the league and the AFC, Talisca came back in a sluggish state and slowly recovered his peak state. Although he scored a crucial goal in the game on Wednesday, his performance was still unable toSatisfied the fans; Paulinho ‘s state is also inexhaustible. In the away game with Kashima Antlers, the “violent bird” only had 24 passes, 1 shot, 3 fouls and 3 fouls. This data is bleak.It is considered that this should not be the performance of a player like him.Both Talisca and Paulinho are Evergrande’s “true thighs”, but after Talisca’s comeback, they have been unable to find the chemical reaction in the second half of last season when the “Bota combination” destroyedThe scene where Ku Lamian helped Evergrande almost complete the turnaround seems difficult to replicate.Cannavaro needs to continue to improve Talisca’s status.Photo / Osports Talisca said Cannavaro placed him in the position he is most familiar with during the game against Kashima Antlers-after returning to the center, he felt his condition improved.But Paulinho does n’t seem to be too fit for his current left midfield position, even though Cannavaro thinks that the current position of the two can give them more space for each, but Paulinho ‘s daze and position are in the game.The imbalance in has proved that this is not the best choice.How the “Bota combination” can form a joint force is the ES that Cannavaro needs to solve. It can even be said to be the most critical issue.Only after solving this problem, Guangzhou Evergrande, which will both enter the sprint stage, will get more help.If you only focus on the game with Urawa Red Diamonds, Evergrande needs a defensive attack line-Urawa’s defensive ability, just look at Guoan and you will know.Sauna, Ye Wang Zhou Xiao editor Zhang Yunfeng proofreading Li Lijun
