It is reported that in order to cheer for the Cangzhou Lions and show the demeanor of Cangzhou fans, Cangzhou fans have rehearsed many times in their spare time in the past month or so.

The team’s run-in is getting better

Immediately got up after falling to the ground in the confrontation, running non-stop on the field trying to create opportunities… For the first time in three years, the players of the Cangzhou Lions played at their own home court. wind.

“Excellent games, exciting games, and excellent results are our goals this season.” Cangzhou Lions head coach Zhao Junzhe said that in recent years, the competition in the Chinese Super League has become increasingly fierce. As a team of small and medium-sized clubs, the Cangzhou Lions hope to play vigorously this season, especially to show their due state at home, and strive to dedicate wonderful games to the fans.

This season, the Cangzhou Lions have undergone a relatively large personnel adjustment. Whether the team can complete the running-in as soon as possible is the key to determining the results of the opening stage.

“If you want to gain a firm foothold in the Chinese Super League, defense is particularly important.” Zhao Junzhe said. According to their own player configuration, the Cangzhou Lions have adopted a 541 defensive formation in the three games that have been played this season. During this period, Zhao Junzhe tried to make personnel adjustments in individual positions of the defense line, constantly looking for the best configuration of the defense line, and the team’s defensive performance in sports battles was basically stable.

However, in the second round of the match against Chengdu Rongcheng, the Cangzhou Lions’ goal was twice broken by the opponent’s set kick. “This also sounded the alarm for our defense.” Zhao Junzhe said that after that game, the team specially carried out the arrangement and training of set-piece defense.

Foreign aid Skoric has become the “biggest discovery” of the Cangzhou Lions this season. This defender, who has galloped in the European arena, was entrusted with the important task of captain after he came to the Cangzhou Lions. In the first two games, he played as a midfielder. In this game, he returned to the central defender position. He performed well no matter where he was. One of the best players on the team so far this season.

“Few people know that the earliest position I played when I was young was actually the midfielder. After coming to the Cangzhou Lions, the coach saw my foot skills and passing ability in training, and hoped that I could organize in the midfield.” Skoric said.

He really did a good job at the task assigned by the coach. In the first two games, he not only became the team’s “scavenger” in the midfield, but also repeatedly organized counterattacks in the midfield. In this game, he became the “Dinghaishenzhen” of the team’s defense again.

In terms of offense, during the run-in process, Zhao Junzhe tried the three foreign aid forward combination of Locadia, Oscar, and Owusu, and also tried to replace Oscar with another foreign aid Zhukov in the starting lineup to strengthen midfield control. Especially in this game, Oscar acted as the striker arrow, Owusu and young player Yao Xuchen assisted one left and one right, and the Cangzhou Lions repeatedly created danger in front of the opponent’s goal.

Compared with many players injured at the beginning of last season, the Cangzhou Lions have maintained a good state of health at the beginning of this season. Despite this, the club has still made a lot of efforts in terms of players’ physical recovery and medical security, and the security measures and intensity are better than last season. In addition, due to the dense schedule of the Chinese Super League this season, the Cangzhou Lions will also reserve more physical energy for the team through appropriate rotations and give young players more opportunities to play, while avoiding injuries.

“It will take a certain amount of time for the team to reach its best state. The main points in the current running-in process have been basically completed, and the next thing to do is to continue to optimize and polish the details. I hope the fans will be more patient.” Zhao Junzhe said that he hopes the team can Take this game as a new starting point, reach the best condition as soon as possible, and strive for better results on the basis of a firm foothold.
