What kind of fate? What kind of point? Wang Baoshan is about to meet Jianye again! In today’s midfield qualifying match, Henan Jianye defeated Guangzhou R&F with no effort and a total score of 5 to 3 in the two rounds. The next round they will face Tianjin TEDA led by former coach Wang Baoshan. The "Black Eight" team that is at the bottom of the group in the first stage will meet in a narrow way and will stage a peak duel between the relegation master and the relegation ancestor. Although the result of the game is irrelevant, such a special contest is also very exciting.
In the first stage of the competition, Henan Jianye was 8th in Group A and Tianjin Teda was 8th in Group B. However, after the second stage, Jianye eliminated the fifth Wuhan Zall in Group B and TEDA eliminated the fifth in Group A. Five Shenzhen Kaisa, Wang Baoshan’s current and former coaching teams staged the "Black Eight Miracles" in different groups. In the following qualifying matches, TEDA continued to advance ahead under the leadership of Wang Baoshan and eliminated Bei The Dalian natives led by Nites and Henan Jianye, who is experienced in relegation, defeated R&F in two rounds of duel. In the end, the two "relegation masters", both of Wang Baoshan's hands, are about to meet.
Although R&F has foreign aid Adrian who helped Chongqing go ashore ahead of schedule, it is clear that Henan Jianye has more experience in relegation. After taking the lead in the first round and being equalized by their opponents, they stayed in danger and played steadily. Bassogo's penalty kick equalized for Jianye. Although Tosic scored again in the second half, Luo Xin quickly tied the score for Jianye again, and Kalanga scored another goal in stoppage time. In the end, Henan Jianye defeated Guangzhou R&F 3-2 and eliminated their opponents with a total score of 5-3. R&F’s two defenders Yi Teng and Tosic also ended in red after accumulating two yellow cards. It is enough to show that Jianye is the one with a more stable mentality and more experience.
In the next round, Jianye will face TEDA. Wang Baoshan, who left the team for unknown reasons at the beginning of the season, will reunite with Jianye. The two Black 8s will meet. Who will have the last laugh? If Wang Baoshan eventually leads TEDA to victory, then he will become the biggest winner in the relegation group and an opportunity for him to prove himself to his old club in his own way.
