Pereira ( head coach of Shanghai SIPG)

This is a difficult match, a typical cup league. We have play many match before, the recent schedule is too tight, the rhythm of every 3 days 1 match. If the team is not playing, they are recovering, verty little of technical and tactical practice,it made us less energetic in the game, of course this is normal. The team like us, currently squad is not particularly big, we can't play in every rotation, to keep the balance of attack and defend system.

Today i am satisfied with players performance, our rotation players are doing well. But for this match, the efficient time is very short, there are too many interruptions.This is a problem facing football matches,we should try to improve our net match time.

In general, I am happy that the team will advance to the next round,what is needed now is a positive recovery, to prepare well for the next match.


Within the 90 minutes we have not let the opponent to score goals, they also don't have a particularly good chance of scoring. This is what we have improve from the previous match witj Changchun Yatai. Our three lines were too far apart in the last match, the formation is not compact enough, there is too much space for the opponent to take advantage of.

We had a lot of problems at the start of the match. Oscar was injured leaving the pitch, his role on the pitch is very important, he can bring vitality to the team, especially in organizing attacks.  His leaving has bring down the team's attacking energy. Then Wu Lei was also injured, has impact his performance.

Regarding Oscars injury, i was not too sure he is now at the hospital,the detail situation have to wait for tomorrow's inspection results and medical team report.Oscar is very important to the team,I hope his injury is not very serious,but head injuries are still a concern. Wu Lei also has head injuries, hope they recover as soon as possible,we need them in the squad for the next match.

Garcia ( head coach of Beijing Renhe): I am very happy and satisfied with this match today,  the whole team plays very energic and hard. To face the strong team like Shanghai SIPG which we could enter the penalty shootout was not easy.There is too much uncertainty about penalty shootouts, finally i would like to congrats to Shanghai SIPG promoted to the next round. At the same time I feel proud of my players, they are trying all their best, to show their strength.
