From the perspective of value, Shenhua is indeed inferior to SIPG, but football is not a paper game, nor is it a simple superposition of 11 people. There are many uncertainties in the two rounds.

Because it happens to be the derby, the attention is very high. Come to us That said, no matter whether the opponent is Shenhua or any other team, every game is important. As long as we can take out our own things in the game, play out the technical and tactical content assigned by the head coach, and play the team's level, I believe Get good grades."
Shenhua also held a mobilization meeting. Club chairman Wu Xiaohui and general manager Zhou Jun demanded that the team in the second stage, as in the first stage, can play with energy and Shenhua spirit.
At 4 pm on the 13th, Shenhua took a bus from Kangqiao Base to the Suzhou Division. Zhou Jun and Vice President Xu Wei went with the team.
