At 19:35 pm on October 18th, Beijing time, the first round of the second round of the 2020 Chinese Super League match between Shanghai Shenhua and Shanghai SIPG began at the Suzhou Olympic Sports Center. In the end, the two teams tied 0-0, and the two teams will start the second round on October 23.
At the post-match press conference, Cui Kangxi, the head coach of the Shanghai Greenland Shenhua team, first said: "Thanks to the players who worked hard to the end. We also have regrets for this game. The result of this game is not too bad. I hope the team can be in the first place. The second round played better."
Speaking of Shenhua's 8 games this season with zero opponents, becoming the No. 1 in the Super League, Cui Kangxi said: "Last year the team conceded more goals in the league, so reducing the league's goals this year has also become our goal. Not only It’s the backcourt. The whole team is defensive together. This is why we can improve on defense. Of course, the players on our defensive line are doing very well, and I am very grateful to them."
Talking about the two foreign players who were not on the field and the player injuries that occurred in today’s game, Cui Kangxi said: “The new foreign aid is still in the process of adapting. Today’s game is faster and the team is more defensive. So I didn't find a chance to replace them. Zhao Mingjian's injury may be more serious, Moreno should be fine, Zhu Chenjie had a sprained ankle, so he replaced him."
Speaking of today's game venue, Cui Kangxi said frankly: "The game is played in a neutral position, so there is no home or away point, but the fans came to the scene to cheer, and the players also gained a lot of power from them."
