Before the start of this season, some Guangdong media once stated that in terms of lineup strength, only Guoan can compete with Evergrande. But after the group stage, looking at Guoan being double-killed by SIPG and repeatedly losing the game against the underdogs, how many people still think that Guoan can have Evergrande's hegemony?
In the group stage, Guoan started smoothly, winning consecutive wins over Chongqing, Zall, TEDA and Huaxia. After winning four consecutive victories, Guoan once beat SIPG and topped the group.
However, in the fifth round, facing the newly promoted Qingdao Huanghai, Guoan led by three goals in half an hour. He was incredibly pulled by his opponent for three consecutive goals and finally tied 3-3. This shameful battle became Guoan this season. The turning point. After that, Guoan was in the peak decisive battle again, a goal lead was reversed by SIPG, and then facing Yongchang, 10 hits 11 thrilling tie. After three rounds of victory, the questioning of Guoan reached its peak. After the start of the second half, Guoan first beat Chongqing, which made people think they had recovered their form, but then faced Zall, Guoan's old problems committed again, and the two goals were tied by the opponent. After defeating TEDA, Guoan was tied with China Fortune with a two-goal lead. In the last three games, Guoan defeated Huang Hai and Yongchang, but lost again in the face of SIPG.
Scored 36 goals in the group stage, Guoan scored the first in the Super League; but lost 19 goals, defense only ranked seventh in the Super League. In the group stage when there was only one strong opponent in SIPG, Guoan was somewhat unable to achieve this result: facing strong opponents and losing in both games, facing weak, three times in the case of at least two goals, the opponent was tied. These games humiliated Guoan.
Last season, Genesio took over halfway, and ultimately did not complete the task of leading the team to win the championship, but Guoan is the runner-up with the highest score ever, and Genesio was able to stay. But since this season, Guoan has performed poorly, and Genesio is desperate. Few people believe that he can lead Guoan to the championship.
The biggest problem that Genesio exposed last season was that it was difficult to win a victory against a strong opponent, and there was no victory in the peak decisive battle. In this season's group stage, Genesio's past problems were not resolved, and Guoan suffered a double defeat by SIPG. Last season, Guoan was like chopping melons and vegetables when facing the underdogs. Now it is also unstable. Genesio’s substitutions are too conservative and the reaction is too slow, which has caused the team to repeatedly appear to win the ticket. Under the circumstances, he was flattened by his opponent, and the French marshal became a target.
In the face of difficulties, Genesio did not make adjustments. In the first half of the match, he won the captain Yu Dabao and let Yu Yanglai and Jin Minya partner in the central defender, but the problem of the national security line was not resolved. Genesio's strategy of focusing on offense and defensiveness is the main reason Guoan has repeatedly taken the roller coaster. Guoan scored 36 goals, but lost 19 goals, and Genesio was also the first responsible person.
Able to score 36 goals, Guoan’s offensive power is commendable. The team’s four forwards Bakanbu, Zhang Yuning, Alan and Wang Ziming all scored. Among them, Bakanbu, who became the target of fans because of repeated spitting last season. This season, he recovered his shooting boots and scored 11 goals to become the best scorer. Zhang Yuning was also selected for the national team because he scored 3 goals and had 3 assists. Alan, who was loaned from Evergrande, also scored 4 goals, Wang Ziming also scored 1 goal. Of course, the most important thing is Bakambu. He scored 11 goals and 5 assists. In terms of creating goals, no one in the Super League can compare with him.
An important reason for Bakambu's recovery is that Vieira, who had been absent from the middle of last season, finally returned. With Vieira threading the needle in the frontcourt, Bakambu has more chances to score. Guoan lost the championship last season. An important reason was that Vieira was fractured and missed the second half of the game. This season, Vieira’s return gave Guoan another frontcourt soul. He scored 3 goals and assisted 3 times to bring life. Guoan attacked.
In addition, Augusto, the core midfielder of Guoan last season, was in poor condition this year. He also missed many games due to injury. The international player Zhang Xizhe replaced him and performed well, scoring 1 goal and assisting 3 times. He has also become the core of Guoan's new midfield organization.
Compared with last season, Guoan's defensive performance this season has fallen dramatically. The first is that the rear defense core Jin Minya has a new side, resulting in poor state. Then the team leader Yu Dabao also fell into a downturn, the main position was replaced by Yu Yang. In the goalkeeper position, Guo Quanbo and Hou Sen's performance was obviously not as good as last season's Zou Dehai.
After Guoan decided to rent out the new aid Shunich, leaving Jin Minza, Guoan was equal to the back line of defense with the original team to challenge Luneng, which undoubtedly faced huge risks. After all, the biggest problem with Guoan was the poor air defense capability, regardless of whether the two major defenders were in the ocean. He Jin Min, or goalkeeper Guo Quanbo, this season has exposed the problem of not being good at handling high-altitude ball. As a South Korean air master, Jin Min-jae is not sure whether he can get back to his form. You know, Luneng is the strongest high-altitude team in the Super League.
At the same time, as the coach, Genesio's ability to adjust on the spot has also been criticized by the outside world: the lineup is too heavy offensive and defensive, and substitutions on the spot are always slow. In this regard, the fans can only expect that Genesio has not shown his housekeeping skills in the group stage, and only showed his real kung fu in the knockout stage.
In the knockout round, Guoan will face Luneng in the first round. Luneng is considered to be one of Guoan’s hardest players. In the past two seasons, Luneng has faced Guoan four times in the league, with 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. Guoan’s only winning league was the last round of last season. Luneng has shifted its focus to the Football Association. In the Cup final, he didn't try his best to play. In the Football Association Cup last season, Luneng eliminated Guoan.
From the perspective of tactical style, Luneng is good at high-altitude bombing. Pellet, Fellaini, Guo Tianyu and other towers are difficult to defend for Guoan. In the Luneng formation, there are also Gerdes who have faced Guoan goals many times. From all levels, Guoan is Luneng's favorite opponent. It is very difficult to think about Luneng.
Even if Guoan eliminates Luneng, there is a high probability that they will face Evergrande in the semifinals. With Guoan's performance this season, can they eliminate Evergrande in the two rounds of competition? If Guoan enters the final, it is likely to face SIPG, who has beaten them twice in the group stage. Can Guoan overwhelm this nemesis? It can be said that Guoan needs a miracle every step forward in the elimination round, let alone winning the championship.
