A DECISIVE MATCH
30 April 2018
Qualified to the quarterfinals of Chinese FA Cup after a 3-0 victory over Dalian Chanjoy, the Tianjin Quanjian has a new challenge in the competition. In the next tuesday, May 1st, the Paulo Sousa’s squad faces Jiangsu Suning at home. The single match is decisive for the permanence of the home team in the competition.
The last encounter with the Cosmin Olaroiu’s cast was 15 days ago, in the sixth round of China Super League, and ended in a 1-1 draw. The Tianjin Quanjian opened the scoring, but could’t handle the pressure, conceding a last five minutes equaliser. Sousa’s team never beat the opponents of Nanjing.
Taking part in two other competitions simultaneously, the portuguese manager is trying out new line-ups to guarantee the best performance of his team. The great achievements conquered recently show the strength of the squad, that also qualified to knockout stages of AFC Champions League.
