On the evening of October 22, Beijing time, Beijing Guoan defeated Shandong Luneng 2-1 in the eight-round four rounds of the Chinese Super League Championship, and advanced to the semi-finals with a total score of 4-3. After the game, Guoan coach Genesio attended the press conference.
In commenting on the game, Genesio said: "We started to play a little nervously, which is normal. After all, the history of the two teams is there. Due to tension, we made mistakes and the other side also seized the opportunity. But Our players showed strong psychology and pulled the score back."
"We created a lot of opportunities in the first half. In the second half, the opponent's defensive counterattack characteristics gave us a headache, but we carried it over and pressed for a high position. Then we controlled the pace of the game and then won the game."
"Zhang Yuning's ability has been known since I took over last year. We believe him. He works as hard as Bakambu. Goals are the reward for his hard work. Winning in this kind of game will have a psychological impact on the team. A lot of help. The next game against Evergrande must be very exciting. Evergrande is very strong, are we where we are? We have the opportunity to give them a go. Congratulations to our players."
"Before playing this kind of game, you must be psychologically prepared. There will be accidents and the game will be fierce, and our players have a strong mentality, and ultimately equalize the score. This is the key to victory. I hope they will continue to maintain a strong mentality. "
