KUNMING, China, Oct. 2 (Xinhua) -- Barbra Banda completed her hat-trick to help Shanghai RCB beat Wuhan Chedu Jianghan University 4-3 in a thrilling second-round game in the championship group of the 2020 Chinese Football Association (CFA) Women's Super League here on Friday.
Barca looked tired after their midweek efforts at Celta Vigo and there were moments in the second half when Sevilla could have won the game with more ambition. Koeman brought on the new arrivals Pedro "Pedri" Gonzalez, Francisco Trincao and Miralem Pjanic in the second half, but the feeling is that Barca's squad still looks lightweight for a full season, and the club needs to sign at least another central defender and a striker before the transfer window closes.
Shanxi took over early in the second quarter, constantly attacking the basket through Fu and Liu in the paint, but Hebei soon charged back with a 9-0 run. Shanxi piled up a 43-38 lead at the break.
The previous best for the No.7 seed in Paris was the semifinals in 2012 when she lost to eventual champion Maria Sharapova 6-3, 6-3.
