"We met some difficulties after our key players' departure," Dongguan coach Lin Yaosen admitted.
Temwa Chawinga gave Wuhan a 1-0 lead in the 10th minute as she received a pass and rifled an effort into the net. Shanghai leveled the game in the 13th minute as Banda stole the ball from a Wuhan defender in the penalty area and slotted it past the goalkeeper. Just one minute later, Shen Mengyu's goal, from an assist from Banda, helped Shanghai gain a 2-1 lead.
"Despite only one week, she has improved a lot since we met last time. She is very young, but she has got everything on the court. Last time in Strasbourg, she didn't go into the game so quickly and played not so steadily. But this time, I can feel her confidence has boosted after winning two rounds at a Grand Slam," said Zhang, who defeated Burel 6-3, 7-6(3) in the Strasbourg Open before coming to Paris.
On the Shanghai side, Zhou Yuyan had 11 points, and Han Xu bagged 10.
The reigning German Champion decided to stick to its successful squad and only go for replacements. "It is striking that Bayern wouldn't have made transfers like this in normal times," Rangnick added.
Head coach Li Tie expressed gratitude for the CSL clubs and the players' participation. "They have endured intensive games and training for 70 days, which was very tough, but they made it through. I myself once took part in a lot of training camps with the national team and I understand they might want to spend more time with their family during the break," he said.
