Guangzhou Evergrande vs Shandong Luneng
AFC Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 18 June 2019
Kick-off at 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET
Venue: Tianhe Stadium (Guangzhou).
Evergrande seems to be prepared to take any challenge head-on, and leave their mark. They are on a six-game winning streak and scored five or more goals in two of their last three matches. While they may have failed to take the top position in their group, the squad is appearing to be peaking at the right moment, with the knockouts of the continental competition around the corner.
Shandong had a tricky path to navigate as they were put along with the defending champions in Group E, but despite the odds being against them, the team emerged as toppers and took the right to face the runners-up of Group F.
The team played out a score-draw in their last fixture, as part of their league campaign, against Chongqing Lifan, but the equalizer which came in the 90+10th minute, after trailing since the hour-mark surely raises their spirits.

Guangzhou Evergrande vs Shandong Luneng Prediction
Evergrande is on a six-game winning streak and scored a total of 12 goals from their last three alone. The team registered five or more goals in two of their last three matches. At home, they were unbeaten in 12 of their last 13 attempts and registered two or more goals in 18 of their last 25 ties.
They also won 18 of their last 22 home fixtures, while Luneng has just four wins from their last 14 road trips, which poses them serious questions regarding their away from.
Importantly, Evergrande won six of the last seven h2h ties and the last four at this venue. As things stand, expect them to come out on top this match-day, but do take into account that despite their inability to consistently win on the road, Luneng found the back of the net in their last 22 away matches on the trot. That’s some serious streak going on there, and it’d be unwise to bet against them getting an away goal.
