Shandong Luneng Taishan coach Hao Wei attended the pre-match press conference against Beijing Zhonghe Guoan. He said: "Guoan is very strong but also has weaknesses. We are also ready to kick a penalty."
"Good afternoon everyone, we just learned about Xie's guidance to his father today (Xie Hongjun's death), and I want to express condolences first.
"The next game between us and Guoan, everyone knows that this game is very important. In the first game, we played a good half. For various reasons, in the second half, we made two passive substitutions and lost a good start."
"In this game, we hope we have more targeted tactics to win this game."
"The biggest problem for the team right now is injuries. These players did not participate in yesterday's joint training. Today they said that there is no problem, but they still need to go through training and see."
"First of all, everyone is ready for this draw. We also practiced penalty kicks. Guoan has a strong ball-handling ability. How do we restrain their ball-handling, including their offensive forwards, are more threatening. However, Guoan also has them passive. On the other hand, his defense and goalkeeper, relatively speaking, are where we need to find ways to score."
"Our coaching staff carefully watched the video. It was still relatively short. A total of 4 days, plus recovery and adjustments, actually the training session that can really solve the problem was yesterday.
"After watching the video, we can say that we have designed some targeted tactics."
"I hope our players can perform normally, and the expectation is to win the game."
“It’s definitely stressful to sit in this position, but I think it’s normal. Stress is not the main thing, it’s how much we do.”
