The first stage of the Chinese Super League ended on September 28, with Evergrande and SIPG being the leaders of the two divisions. In this regard, "Shangguan News" analyzed and pointed out that the personnel composition of SIPG and Evergrande is not at the same level.
The media said that SIPG's bench depth is far from Evergrande. In the process of rotation, Evergrande used the veteran to play with the newcomer, and the foreign aid played with the local player. SIPG faces Chongqing's all-China class as the starting point, and there is a big gap in the comprehensive ability of these substitute players. Evergrande has obviously more bench thickness in this regard.
The media also stated that the presence or absence of naturalized players is also one of the factors leading to the championship. Evergrande’s “6 foreign aids” starter did not violate the rules itself, but this approach also seized the position of local players. Once there is a team that can force Evergrande to play the "6 foreign aid" card with outstanding performance, regardless of winning or losing, the team itself has achieved great success, even if it loses, it is a glorious defeat.
