The first game of China An after the AFC rematch was against Seoul FC on November 21, so they prepared more calmly than the other top three. However, it needs to be pointed out that due to the impact of the epidemic, the 4th Super League team still has to face a series of practical problems such as "entry and exit (visa) and international travel". In addition, according to previous events in West Asia, all club teams participating in events in East Asia will face the implementation of strict anti-epidemic measures.
But a realistic problem that cannot be avoided is that the AFC and FA Cup schedules are seriously "crashing". The three AFC teams including Evergrande, Guoan and SIPG, which have entered the top 16 of the FA Cup, are facing two-line battles. Since this season's FA Cup champion team will still directly lock in a place for the AFC competition next season, these three clubs will focus on which event will compete and must make a choice.
