Hupu News, September 27 Today, Shanghai Greenland Shenhua successfully advanced to the championship team after beating Henan Jianye 2-0. According to the "Morning News" report, Shenhua will have a holiday until October 3 after returning to Shanghai tomorrow, after which she will begin preparations for the playoffs and the Shanghai SIPG.
Tomorrow, after the end of the first stage of the Chinese Super League this season, Shenhua, who has entered the championship group if he wishes, will return to Shanghai from Dalian. After more than two months of closed expeditions, the players are very tired both physically and mentally. Therefore, the coaching staff decided to give everyone about a week of vacation for rest and adjustment. The team will be off until October 3.
Shenhua has been stationed in Dalian for more than 70 days since she left for Dalian from Shanghai on July 19 and entered the Dalian competition area. For the sake of preventing and controlling the epidemic, this season's Chinese Super League is conducted in a fully enclosed environment. After being stationed in the competition area, all team personnel must not come into contact with accidental personnel in the blue zone. In other words, during the two months or so, the players lived completely on the court or the training ground and the hotel.
In addition to the closed life, the pressure of the game is also very great. Especially in the final stage of the league, the team needs to complete 4 games within 10 days, and Shenhua is also very nervous due to the absence of multiple foreign aids and injuries to the front court players. The intensive schedule and the lack of soldiers put the team under unprecedented pressure both physically and mentally. Fortunately, the whole team united as one, overcame various difficulties, and completed the set goal of entering the top 4 of the group.
The team enters a holiday of about one week, so the whole team is disbanded in Dalian, and foreign players will not return to Shanghai with the team. According to the team's plan, Shenhua will have a holiday until October 3, and then invested in the second stage of the league preparation. Shenhua’s first knockout opponent in the second stage of the league is SIPG, and the two rounds of the match are scheduled for October 18th and 23rd. In terms of overall strength, SIPG is definitely above Shenhua, so these two games must be very difficult for Shenhua. However, in the two rounds of the 2017 FA Cup finals, Shenhua defeated SIPG to win the FA Cup.
