Competition: Quarter-final of 2019 AFC Champions League

So this year's AFC Champions League has selected the 8 best teams to compete in the quarterfinals. The rival of Shanghai SIPG will be Urawa Reds. It can be said that Chinese representatives are in good form with the quality squad, and will not be surprised if they beat Urawa Reds in the first leg on August 27th.

Shanghai SIPG is a team with "cheek" in China in particular and Asia in general. However, it seems that the AFC Champions League title is still turning away from them. The best achievement "Red eagles" is reached into the semi-finals. Certainly, with the coming to the Quarter-finals in this season,  head coach Screwor Pereira's team are determined to correct their history.

Currently Shanghai SIPG is in the top 3 teams of the Chinese Super League. Not only that, their past performance is also extremely stable when they only lost 1 in the last 14 matches. With a team of players like Marko Arnautović or Oscar, these are unexpected results from the red team.

This year in the AFC Champions League quarterfinals, the Shanghai rivals will be Urawa Reds. It can be said that, with home advantage in the first leg, coach Screwor Pereira will be very determined to win in order to have certain advantages before the return leg.

On the other side of the front line, Urawa Reds is a pretty good team in the AFC Champions League history. In the past 15 years, they have won 2 most prestigious championships in this tournament.

However, the current Japanese club is not appreciated. They are currently only ranked 10th in the J League with an impressive performance. It seems that the tension in so many matches, from the J League to the Heavenly Cup, and now the AFC Champions League is making Kazuki Nagasawa and his teammates tired and unable to play their best.

The next match, when clashed with a Shanghai SIPG team having many advantages, it is likely that Urawa Reds will lose in China.
