Recently, with the approach of the second stage of the Chinese Super League, the atmosphere of the championship group has become increasingly tense. Guoan Chairman Zhou Jinhui said that the team has a great advantage in staffing and is fully equipped to compete for the championship. In response, commentator Zhao Yu talked about his views on the upcoming battle between Beijing and Lu.
Zhao Yu said: “I believe that for Augusto’s failure to play in the first round, Guoan has already prepared a plan. Against Luneng, I think we should use two defensive midfielders, like Chi Zhongguo, Li Ke, etc. The players should still start. Unfortunately, Vieira and Augusto are no longer connected, but Zhang Xizhe and Vieira’s partner can also play the same role."
"To play against Luneng, Guoan must strengthen the interception ability of the midfield, and Luneng's high point in the frontcourt also needs to be restricted. These are very important. If it can cut off the opponent's midfield and prevent the opponent's high point, Guoan will be extremely capable. May win. In fact, the biggest opponent of Guoan in this game is not Luneng but himself. As long as the players can overcome their own level, victory will be natural."
The two teams will compete in two rounds on October 17th and October 22nd. Throughout the history of the two teams, they have played 43 games in all competitions since entering the Chinese Super League era, and Luneng won 17 times in regular time. 16 draws and 10 losses prevail.
Judging from the current two-line combat situation of the two teams, for Beijing Guoan, due to the next AFC match, Beijing Guoan has no time to take care of the next FA Cup, and Shandong Luneng will be taken early in the Chinese Super League this season. Eliminated, not qualified for the AFC, can also focus on the FA Cup in the next game, through the FA Cup to win the AFC qualification next season.
