After thrashing Beijing Renhe by four goals to one last week, the home side, Jiangsu Suning FC, will be aiming for back to back victories when they take on the visitors Shanghai Shenhua, at the Nanjing Olympic Sports Center on Friday.
The hosts, who are currently fifth in the league, are just one point behind fourth-placed Shandong Luneng and will be hoping to breathe down the latter’s neck by securing the win against the visitors this week.
The away side are currently 14th in the table with 9 points and are in desperate need for a win if they intend on hopping out of the relegation zone anytime soon. Their run of form on the road has been dismal, with their most recent away match against Beijing Guoan ending 2-1 in the latter’s favour.

Jiangsu Suning FC vs Shanghai Shenhua Predictions
The home side, Jiangsu Suning FC, are almost certain to breeze past the visitors Shanghai Shenhua, when both the teams clash for the first time this season on Friday. The hosts have been impressive at home, losing just one out of their last five matches, while the away side have been struggling with just one win in their last five matches on the road.
The home side have certainly dominated when up against teams from the lower half of the table, and are certainly favorites to come out on top against the away side, who are currently second from the bottom. Eder scored a brace in the home team’s 4-1 win last week and is certainly a potential candidate to get his name on the score sheet, come Friday.
The visitors will also have to be cautious of the home side’s Alex Teixeira who is currently the joint third highest goal scorer in the league. You can be certain that the home side will be walking away with the win, the three points and possibly a clean sheet.
