"Morning News" said that tonight's match with Guangzhou R&F is definitely the most crucial battle for Shenhua so far this season. The result of this game will determine to a large extent whether Shenhua can enter the ranks of the championship group as desired. Judging from the current situation, Shenhua's minimum goal is not to lose, to keep the tie and win, so that the initiative is firmly in his own hands.
Currently, Shenhua ranks fourth in the group with 15 points, Shenzhen Kaisa and R&F have 14 points, and Dalian has 11 points. Tonight, Shenhua and R&F, Shenzhen Kaisa and Dalian people will fight each other. Both games are worth 6 points. With only two rounds left in the first stage of the league, whoever loses the game basically means falling behind early and withdrawing from the battle for four.
If Shenhua beats R&F in this round, and the Dalian people do not lose to Shenzhen Kaisa, Shenhua will be able to lock the fourth place in the group ahead of time. Once Shenzhen Kaisa also defeated the Dalian people at the same time, the battle for the fourth will continue to the final round. In the last round of the league, Shenhua’s opponent is Henan Jianye, who is determined to enter the relegation group. Shenzhen Kaisa will face Jiangsu Suning, who is competing with Luneng for second in the group. From the perspective of opponents’ strength and combat effectiveness, Shenhua has a certain Advantage. If Shenhua fails to win R&F and the two teams are tied, once Shenzhen Kaisa wins in another game, then Shenhua will temporarily vacate the fourth position in the group and wait for the final round of the league to see a decision.
According to the media, Shenhua needs to do its best to win the game against R&F. Considering that Moreno, Yu Hanchao and Cao Yunding were injured in the attack line, if it is difficult to defeat R&F, at least the stability of the defense line must be ensured and the game will not be lost, so as to fight for another chance in the final round.
