Championship group

  Shandong Luneng Taishan vs Beijing Zhonghe Guoan Highlights ★★★★★

  From the perspective of the strength of the two teams, this can be regarded as the most important contest in the first two rounds.

In view of the fact that the side that wins in the double-round match can become the top 4 teams this season, this strong dialogue, which is already worth a lot of attention, adds a little bit of cruelty.

  The performance of the two teams in the first stage was not completely satisfactory. Luneng once suffered four rounds of invincibility, and finally slipped to the third place in the group.

During the offseason, Li Xiaopeng dismissed get out of class, and assistant coach Hao Wei took over the coach.

Although the latter can be considered knowledgeable for Luneng players, but the current node of the war will inevitably have a certain impact.

  Guoan’s situation and Luneng’s "sickness" meant that the two tough battles with SIPG in the first phase were all defeated, and they were drew with Qingdao Huanghai and Shijiazhuang Yongchang. They were evened many times at the end of the lead. It caused dissatisfaction among fans.

In addition, from the historical confrontation, Guoan has always been in a weak position in the past six games and only achieved 1 win, 3 draws and 2 losses.

  At the previous championship mobilization meeting, Guoan Club Chairman Zhou Jinhui said that the team should be more determined and tough.

In fact, whether this can be achieved will also determine the destiny of Guoan.

If you can work hard and give play to your due level, Guoan, which is slightly stronger, is a high probability event.

The Jinglu battle has always had no shortage of highlights.

  Shanghai SIPG vs Shanghai Shenhua Highlights★★★★★

  It is also a strong dialogue, but in terms of strength, SIPG has obvious advantages.

In the special season, this is a different Shanghai Derby from the past.

This kind of competition system has to make people think of the 2017 Football Association Cup finals. At that time, the Shanghai Shenhua double-round match, which was not optimistic, defeated the rising Shanghai SIPG and successfully won the cup.

  Although in the league after that, Shenhua lost all four games against SIPG, but in the competition system that Shenhua is best at, it may stage a counterattack again.

In the first stage, Shenhua, who is almost in the Chinese class, was invincible when he played against direct opponents and stronger teams in the fourth quarter, tenaciously keeping the top four, showing a strong ability to fight hard games.

Now that Shenhua has filled up the foreign aid vacancies, the performance of the two new South American aids, Martinez and Bolaños, may become the winners and losers of the two rounds.

  The winners of the two teams will face the winners of Jiangsu Suning and Chongqing Dangdai. If they become the winner of the double round again, they can enter the final championship and runner-up competition, standing on this relatively flat road to promotion, Shenhua and Shang Naturally, Hong Kong does not want to give up this excellent opportunity.

  Highlights of Hebei Huaxia Fortune vs. Guangzhou Evergrande★★★

  The three-game winning streak at the end of the first stage, especially winning the fourth dialogue with Wuhan Zall, made Hebei Huaxia Fortune enter the top four counterattacks.

In the face of the powerful Guangzhou Evergrande, this kind of magic is difficult to continue.

After all, in the first stage, Guangzhou Evergrande can still play a strong record of 11 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses in the group A where the strong teams gather.

The Evergrande Conference will not show a stronger state as soon as it comes up in the second stage. This is the biggest attraction of this game.

  What to watch for Chongqing Dangdai vs Jiangsu Suning★★★

  The outstanding performance in the first stage allowed Suning to take the second place in Group A, avoiding championship-level teams such as Guoan and SIPG.

At the end of the first stage of Chongqing Contemporary, a magical six-game winning streak replaced Shijiazhuang Yongchang as the biggest dark horse of the season.

Those who were relegated in advance have already rented out their core foreign aid Adrian in the transfer window, and they want to go further in the transfer window.

Relegation group

  Tianjin TEDA vs Shenzhen Kaisa Highlights ★★★★

  "Win a game and relegation" has become a talk of the outside world before the start of the season. As the season progresses, this magical "story" is more and more likely to be realized on Tianjin TEDA, which has not won in the first stage. This will also Become one of the highlights of this game and the second stage.

  The joining of former SIPG midfielders Ahmedov and Suarez has greatly made up for the vacancies of Wagner and Mattijiang, and Achim Peng, who is in poor condition, may also be activated.

The TEDA team in the second stage will show a new look.

Such a seemingly strong and weak match, in fact, has a strong uncertainty.

There are many players in Shenzhen who have played for Tianjin Tianhai, which also adds to the relegation battle.

Can Tianjin TEDA, which has not won a round, stage a counterattack to relegation?

  What to watch for Shijiazhuang Yongchang vs Dalian people ★★★★

  When the two “top-heavy” teams meet, it is foreseeable that the game scene will be very fierce. For neutral fans, this game may seem very enjoyable.

In the first stage, Yongchang was the biggest dark horse of the season due to successive injuries of Matthews and Muric. In the last 4 rounds, they only scored 1 draw and 3 losses, but fell to 6th.

  The Dalian team under the coach Benitez only won two wins in 14 games in the first stage. The pain caused by the "Youth Storm" is obvious.

The team introduced Brazilian midfielder Janisson in the transfer window, and Hamsik returned to the national team to prepare.

The injured veteran Li Jianbin also returned to the first team, and the stability of the Dalian team's defense will be enhanced.

  In the first stage of the four tough battle, the Dalian team has not yet tasted a victory. This time comes to the second stage of the tough battle. What kind of face the team under Benitez will show is worth looking forward to.

Whether Yongchang can continue to stage the counterattack of the civilian team in the face of the stronger Dalian team is also a big issue.

Whether Matthews can play may become a key factor in leading this relegation drama.

In the second stage, can Benitez's team show a new look?

  Highlights of Henan Jianye vs Wuhan Zall★★★

  The two teams that have undergone a change of coaches staged encounters at the beginning of the second stage. Who can quickly bottom out is the biggest attraction.

Compared with Wuhan Zall, Henan Jianye, who gave up the first stage early, may have an advantage. With the return of foreign aid before Jianye, the team's strength will be shown.

After Jose finishes class, Zall will have to put a question mark on whether he can quickly get out of the decline.

  In terms of strength, although Zall is superior in terms of local players, he is at an absolute disadvantage on the more decisive level of foreign aid.

Nahor, Carrizo, and Martins introduced from Shenhua have yet to show their competitiveness. Compared with foreign aids like Jianye Ivo, Bassogo, Dorado, and Kalanga who have been fighting for more than many years, the gap More obvious.

  What to watch for Qingdao Huanghai vs Guangzhou R&F★★★

  After Wu Jingui took office, Qingdao Huanghai once showed a good momentum, but after the end of the "honeymoon period", it still could not escape the cruel reality.

In the second half of the first stage, the team only achieved a record of 1 win and 7 losses.

  After Zahavi left the team, Guangzhou R&F’s play style was more integrated, and the results did not fall but rose. After the loan of Chongqing Contemporary "thigh" Adrian, Guangzhou R&F defeated Qingdao Huanghai in two rounds and relegated to the shore in advance. .
