After the match, Shanghai SIPG head coach Pereira admitted that it was a very tough game. "We lost the ball very early at the beginning, the opponent defended very well, and it was difficult to create enough space to get the chance to score. Although the team created some chances in the first half, but they did not score. In the second half, we made some adjustments, but the opponent was constantly creating long passes, striving for the second point, and frequent side passes, which made it difficult for us to control the pace of the game. Especially after the red card, the situation is very bad for us.


However, Pereira was very happy to praise the performance and fighting spirit of the players.

The last minute of the game are very difficult, not only for the players, but also for the coaches and supporters, because both teams have the chance to score. Finally, it's a good thing that get three points."


Today we won, but at some stage we lost. Football match needs some luck, today we are lucky. Of course, what I am more satisfied with is the tenacity of the players' spirit. Pereira also said, "Today's last minute is very open, everyone is attacking, trying to score, there are also opportunities, in this circumstances, goals and concessions are possible. Of course, the result is very good, but I don't like this way of playing. It's not good for my health and it's a test for my heart.
