In fact, in the 12th round of the match between Yongchang and SIPG, if it were not for the injury of Matthews, SIPG would probably lose the game, and SIPG would eventually win the game. In fact, it was pure luck, the handball. The distance was too close, and Liao Chengjian just took off, his arms opened naturally, but accidentally hit by the ball, SIPG received a penalty.
In this game, before Matthews was injured, the game almost became an exhibition match for Matthews. Even the defensive player Yang Shiyuan of SIPG also became the focus. He used fouls to contain Matthews again and again, but the referee’s The penalty scale is too loose, and even serious misjudgments have occurred. For example, Matthews broke through and was pushed down by Yang Shiyuan from behind, but the referee Shi Zhenlu was unmoved. But even with such a loose penalty, Wei Zhen and Yang Shiyuan both received yellow cards from Matthews. If they were stricter, the possibility of Yang Shiyuan being punished is actually very high.
Muric played in the second half. It can be seen that after returning from injury, Muric’s condition is still obviously problematic. He has relatively few breaks and breakthroughs. In the 92nd minute, he also missed a pass from Chen Pu. Although he ran, he could still control the ball, but his physical condition seemed to be poor and Murić lost control of the ball.
Regarding the current situation of the team, coach Gutby was also helpless: "Oscar was injured first in the first half, Muric returned from injury, but Matthews was injured and left the game. These three key players have an impact on the game. It has a direct impact. It feels uncomfortable to lose, but we tried our best, so even though we lost, we are honored."
What is gratifying is that after SIPG’s goal, despite the lack of Matthews, although Muric is in general, the local players of Yongchang performed very eye-catching and played many threatening attacks: such as Chen Pu in the 82nd minute. After the breakthrough, Park Shihao faced the goalkeeper but failed to score. Then Muliqi's header was blocked by Yan Junling at the goal line. In stoppage time, Chen Pu crossed Muliqi, but Muliqi ran past. , Missed opportunities.
"After losing the ball, we created a good opportunity, we were very active, and we hope to get a draw. The injury of the foreign aid also gave the young players more opportunities. Chen Pu performed very well today." Gutby said .
There is no doubt that Yongchang has frequently created opportunities for SIPG at the last moment, and it has also given Yongchang more confidence from the top and bottom. In the next round, although Yongchang will face the strong and powerful Chongqing Modern, the strength of Chongqing Modern does not after all. Strong, as long as Yongchang can maintain confidence and play the overall and team football, he may not have no chance to win. You know, before Mulic was absent, when Yongchang played against Huang Hai and Huaxia Fortune, the outside world generally disliked Yongchang, but Yongchang won two consecutive victories.
Of course, if Yongchang wants to advance, in addition to defeating Chongqing Dangdai, he also has to score points in the final round of the game against Guoan. Guterbi also said: "We did not consider that we could get all the points in the last three games. In two games, my character is never to give up, so we will fight to the last moment and continue to work hard to enter the top four of the group. I believe my players and fans will also have this character."
Will a miracle occur? As long as the heart is strong enough, miracles can certainly occur.
