Jeonbuk vs Shanghai SIPG
AFC Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 26th June 2019
Kick off at 11:00 UK / 12:00 CET
Venue: Jeonju World Cup Stadium (Jeonju).
Jeonbuk FC managed to grab the crucial away goal in their previous clash with each other and will be looking to cash in on home advantage when they welcome Shanghai SIPG FC for the return leg on Wednesday at the Jeonju World Cup Stadium in Jeonju.
Their last encounter was certainly a close call for Vitor Periera’s side with their counterparts finding the back of the net through Moon Seon-Min two minutes after the kick-off. The latter soon equalised through Wang Shenchao, but were unable to find a clear decider in the rest of the match.
Jose Morais’s men continued to terrorize their opponents in the attacking third and managed to amass 20 attempts at goal, out of which five were on target.
Their counterparts, on the other hand, were able to work the keeper on just two out of their attempted ten efforts and managed to keep just 42% of possession in the entire ninety minutes.

Jeonbuk vs Shanghai SIPG Prediction
The hosts are likely to beat the visitors when the two teams clash against each other on Wednesday for the second leg. Jose Morais’s side have that all important away goal under their belt, which means that they will progress to the next stage even if they are held to a draw.
Considering that they are also without a loss in their last five matches at home, the away side are looking at what is certain to be an inevitable defeat if they fail to put their best step forward.
The away side definitely have their work cut out for them and will have to create as many chances as possible in their attacking third.
Elkeson has been consistent in finding the back of the net in his squad’s last two outings on the road and will be hoping to cancel out their opponent’s away goal with one of their own.
However, the hosts are almost certain to put the game to bed before the ninety minutes is even up and are also likely to record a clean sheet in the process.
