Had it not been for a stroke of luck, when Marcello Lippi opted to take over as coach of the China national team rather than return to Evergrande, Felipao's reign in Guangzhou would already have been at an end but...

You're an underdog team, playing away to one of the most successful sides in Asia. Barely 30 minutes have gone, you're already trailing 3-0, and now you're down to nine men after a second defender has been sent off.

It was a tough initiation as Chan Yuen-ting became the first female manager to lead a men's side in a continental competition, with Hong Kong's Eastern SC facing Luiz Felipe Scolari's Guangzhou Evergrande in the AFC Champions League (ACL) on Wednesday night.
