Beijing Guoan vs Shanghai Shenhua
China – Super League
Date: Friday, 14 June 2019
Kick-off @ 11.00 UK/ 12.00 CET
Venue: Workers’ Stadium (Beijing)
With only two points separating Beijing Guoan from second placed Shanghai SIPG, the home side will be looking to gather all three points to extend their advantage as they welcome visitors Shanghai Shenhua to the Workers Stadium in Beijing on Friday.
The visitors who are dwelling in the relegation zone at present will need a miracle to salvage at least a point, from the clash, let alone the win.
Quique Sanchez Flores’s men who come into the tie with just one win in their last five matches, are desperate to see themselves out of the relegation zone. However, it looks like they will be staying there for a while longer, as a third defeat for them in five matches looks fairly evident.

Beijing Guoan vs Shanghai Shenhua Prediction
Table toppers Beijing Guoan are all but certain to pick up the win against Shanghai Shenhua, who are currently struggling to get out of the relegation zone. The home side have an unbeaten record at home this season and the away side’s recent run of form does not look good enough to bring the home side to a halt.
Roger Schmidt’s men, who have not been shy in opening the scoring right from the first half in any of their previous matches, look likely to repeat the same when they take on Shanghai on Friday. The home team are favourites to come out on top with three points in one hand and a possible clean sheet in the other.
