Nearly 70%of Guoan qualifying? The Heat’s two consecutive victories are still being questioned, the scoring hero is unhappy
On the evening of November 21, the second round of Group E of the 2020 AFC Champions League group stage had a focus match. Beijing Zhonghe Guoan played in the AFC again after nine months, defeating South Korean team Seoul FC 2-1 in their debut after the restart of the tournament. Fernando opened the scoring for Guoan, Alan scored a goal to expand the score, Kim Min-jae sent a handball, and Park Ju-young made a free throw to win back a city. After this round, Beijing Zhonghe Guoan led the group standings with two consecutive victories.
Two consecutive victories give Beijing Zhonghe Guoan’s team qualifying prospects Lay a good foundation. In the previous history of Guoan’s AFC Champions League, they had won two consecutive group matches in 2008, 2010 and 2015. Among them, the 2010 and 2015 seasons finally succeeded in qualifying from the group with a success probability of 67%. This time they are also expected to stand out from the group stage. According to the current schedule, at 18:00 on November 24th, Beijing time, Beijing Zhonghe Guoan will face Melbourne to victory.
After two consecutive victories, Guoan is in a more favorable position for the subsequent group stage. Guoan Core Augusto said after the game:“This is a very difficult game. Playing this game is very costly to us. Great. It took a long time to play the second game after the first round of the group stage. Today’s victory is the result of the team’s hard work. We hope to recover as much as possible in the limited time and play the next game well.”
In addition to affecting the team’s qualifying situation, this victory also allowed Beijing to He Guoan was able to break several embarrassing records. First of all, this is the first time Guoan has beaten its rival Seoul FC in history. In the previous four matches between the two sides, Guoan drew and lost without winning. Among them, the two teams met in the 1/8 finals in the 2013 season, and Guoan was eliminated 0-1 at home and 1-3 away. In the 2014 season group stage, the two teams were in the same group. Guoan was suppressed 1-1 at home and 1-2 away. This season, Seoul FC has been in a downturn and has a poor record. Guoan finally broke the curse with this good opportunity.
Guoan is not only a poor record against Seoul, but also a”Korea fear” when facing South Korean teams. In the AFC Champions League, Beijing Zhonghe Guoan had 19 previous matches against the South Korean team and only achieved a poor record of 2 wins, 5 draws and 12 losses. The last time they beat the South Korean team in the AFC Champions League has to be dated back to their 1-0 win over Suwon Samsung in the 2015 group stage. That was also their second time in the AFC after their 2-0 victory over Pohang Steelers in the 2013 group stage. The field won the victory against the South Korean team.
Today is the third time to win against the South Korean team, 2089 days after the last time. In these 2089 days, Beijing Guoan has played against South Korean teams five times but failed to win. The last four of them were against Jeonbuk Hyundai. They were the 1/8 finals of the 2015 season and the group stage of the 2019 season, with a record of 1 draw and 3 negative.
But it should be pointed out that although Guoan’s two consecutive victories are gratifying , But Genesio’s on-the-spot substitution was questioned by the media and fans. Just after 20 minutes in the second half, Genesio replaced the two starting forwards Zhang Yuning and Alan. Among them, the scoring hero Alan reacted very unhappy when he was replaced. As a result, without the restraint of these two men, Guoan, who lost the offensive, was besieged by his opponent at half-court, and there was a lot of noise in front of the goal. After losing a goal, he changed the forward and had the idea of retreating. This conservative style once again pushed Genesio to the cusp of condemnation by the fans.
