The first phase of this season's Super League is coming to an end. Shandong media "Jinan Times" discovered an interesting phenomenon, that is, teams that have won Luneng in the league in recent years have always "rolled over."
Shandong has won many losses against Shenhua in the past two years. Last year, it was reversed by Shenhua in the FA Cup final, but Shenhua is not doing well now. The team has not won 8 consecutive games. If it loses again, it may fall to the relegation group; the FA Cup defends its title. The champion also defeated his opponent in the first round and missed the title.
After defeating Luneng, Suning also faced a relatively weak opponent in a row and missed the best time to further consolidate his position at the top of the standings.
Dalian, another team that beat Luneng, still retains a weak hope of entering the championship group, but the possibility is very slim. With two draws and one loss in the last three rounds, they have fallen behind too much in the first stage, failing to continue the good state at the beginning of the second stage.
"Jinan Times" pointed out that not only this season, the phenomenon of "rolling over" after winning Luneng has already begun to appear before. Guizhou Hengfeng, who had double defeated Luneng in 18 years, eventually ranked first in the league and entered the Chinese League. After Dalian Yifang defeated Luneng in the 5th round of 19, it was once into 4 games without victory.
In this regard, the Jinan Times believes that objectively speaking, this phenomenon is due to the combination of objective conditions such as the team's overall strength, schedule, and accidental factors such as injuries. After all, no team can guarantee in the long league. The best condition has been continued.
At the same time, the newspaper believes that there are certain subjective factors for the emergence of this phenomenon, that is, the above-mentioned teams are relatively high: Shenhua obviously wants to do something in the offseason, but the changes in injuries and foreign aid make Cui Kangxi It’s hard for a clever woman to cook without rice; Dalian people always adhere to Benitez’s advanced concept, and it is inevitable that there will be pains in the road of rejuvenation; the strength of Jiangsu Suning team is second only to Evergrande, but they can’t make short-term Recovered quickly...
"Jinan Times" finally stated that the "rollover" after defeating Luneng is not enough to be included in any team's tactical considerations. For all teams, perseverance and hard work are the most direct and simple secrets for breaking the spell.
