PereiraVictory comes from Focus

At the post-match press conference, Shanghai SIPG head coach Pereira was very satisfied with the final result and the performance of the players. "Today, we played very well, created many chances and scored two goals. It's a fair score and we deserve to win the game.

For the team's strength in the game, Pereira believes that "in recent multiple-line combat, sometimes the state of condition are up and downs which is normal. In fact, we played well in the last ACL competition. How important this game for us is clearly to the players. We must not lose, which will enlarge the gap between the top team. So the whole team stayed focused from the first minute until the end of the game. Of course, the only regret is that so many chances have been created and only two goals have been scored, which is something that needs to be improved. Generally speaking, I am satisfied with the players' performance today. They have played a sense of responsibility as a whole.

Pereira also said that in order to deal with the opponents three strong foreign players, he specifically called to enhance on high position pressing, "We continue to create pressure on their players, which is very important. If they don't press, they can pass the ball easily, and they will have more chances to run and pass the ball. We watch their central defenders grab the ball and don't let them play easily. That's what my expectation in the game.

Head coach of Tianjin Teda Stielike believes that although the team lost the game, the team has done its best, so there is no regret, "Congratulations on the victory of the opponent, we can also go home happily. Because my players did their best in the match. They did everything I wanted from them, but they were not as skilled as Shanghai SIPG. Especially Shanghai SIPGs defending in CSL competition has all perform quite good, and they come to our home stadium, to show respect and pay attention to us, regardless of the number of defenders, or their personal capabilities has play very well, so that makes our three foreign players has not perform at their best.
