Miserable debut for Carrasco in China

Miserable debut for Carrasco in China

Yannick Carrasco and Nico Gaitan were the highlights in the CSL winter stop as the duo moved from Atletico Madrid to Dalian Yifang in the last days before the transfer window closes. Today’s match was a debut for both players, but they received a painful loss of 8-0 to Shanghai SIPG.

Carrasco and Gaitan both played 90 minutes, but were dominated by the Brazilian duo Oscar and Hulk. Oscar scored a stunning hattrick and Hulk scored from the penalty spot after fouled by former West Ham player, Jose Fonte. Chinese superstar Wu Lei also scored a remarkable hattrick for Shanghai SIPG.

The result was very disappointing for Dalian Yifang and the newly joined players. The season just started and the new players joined the team for only a short time. Let’s hope they will achieve better results in the upcoming games.
