Tiger Fighting, October 23. Beijing Guoan defeated Shandong Luneng to advance to the second round of this year’s Super League Championship. After the match, the "Beijing Youth Daily" also wrote an article commenting on the match. They thought it was a thorough game played by Guoan. Turn around.
After winning Luneng 2-1 to advance to the top 4, Guoan finally breathed a sigh of relief, and the long-standing emotions broke out. This is more than just a win, because this opponent has been the absolute master of Guoan for the past few years. Several coaches have nothing to do with it. Many players have worked hard, but still can’t change this Curse. But on this night, in the Suzhou Sports Center, history was rewritten, and it was a real victory, from a technical and tactical point of view, as well as from a spiritual level. Guoan fought a complete turnaround.
You said that whether the outside world is optimistic about National Security or Luneng, the game depends on the players. As an opponent who has rarely been able to win for so many years, it is not clear to everyone whether Guoan can eliminate Luneng or not. In other words, this hurdle has been buried in the heart for many years and has been unable to truly pass. Guoan can win Evergrande and SIPG, but every time it encounters Luneng, it is difficult to defeat the opponent. Even Schmidt, who has always refused to admit defeat, shook his head helplessly. This opponent is really difficult to deal with.
I couldn’t win against Luneng before, but it was actually suppressed by the opponents in all respects-on the technical level, their main defensive counterattack and high-handed tactics made the ball-handling tactics enough to control the national security; on the spiritual level, the confidence accumulated in the past allowed Luneng players to We have a strong momentum, and it is difficult for Guoan to win back a city, let alone reverse the decline. This situation lasted for a long time until the end of last year.
I believe many people still remember the situation when Guoan won the home game in Beijing 3-2 in the last round of the league last year. There were some surprises but also inevitability, because since then, Luneng has been in technical and tactical aspects. It seems that the targeted arrangements are not as good as before, and Gil’s departure has caused problems with their original rock-solid defense, and this change has also made the new season’s Jinglu battle more interesting.
The arrival of the epidemic has affected the normal progress of the league, and in fact has also brought opportunities for both sides to make progress. Judging from the competition between the two rounds of the knockout rounds, Luneng’s past "specializing" Guoan's momentum seems to be much worse than before. Although it can still score in the game against Guoan, it is also too easy to lose the ball. , And it can be seen from the play of the second game that Guoan has already surpassed this opponent in overall control. Yes, it has been able to suppress Guoan's Luneng for many years.
It is not excessive to describe the victory of this group of duels as "over a mountain". Looking at the entire Super League, in the list of opponents Guoan hopes to win most, Luneng is definitely among the best. This time, in Suzhou, Guoan fought a complete turnaround. This victory also gave them enough confidence to compete with Luneng in the future.
Of course, the journey of the Guoan season is far from over. Crossing the hurdle of Luneng, it can only be said that it is a hurdle that must be passed on the road to promotion. There are "two mountains" in front of Guoan. With a more confident attitude to face the last two opponents, Guoan achieves the goal of the championship. Undoubtedly, heavy weights will be added.
