Shandong Luneng vs Shanghai Shenhua
China – Super League
Date: Wednesday, 5 August 2020
Kick-off at 11:00 UK/ 12:00 CET
Venue: Pro Soccer Academy Base (Dalian).
Shandong will boot up for their first home match in the league this season. Both their first two clashes were on the road and they still stayed unbeaten in the process. Their opening match with Dalian Pro ended in a 2-3 win while the last game was a goalless draw with Jiangsu Suning.
Shanghai Shenhua opened the new edition with a 2-0 loss on the road against G.C. Evergrande. Since their opening away game was met with a clean sheet loss, Choi Kang-hee will have to pick his team up from that loss against a side to which they haven’t won in the last four visits. They will visit on the back of a 3-2 win at home against Shenzhen in the previous league clash.

- The host is unbeaten at home in their last four clashes since 2017.
Shandong Luneng vs Shanghai Shenhua Prediction
Shandong Luneng has a better home record in the league in the previous season, while Shanghai Shenhua has been known for its slip-ups away from home.
This puts a little picture of the Taishan Dui enjoying the ground advantage and the guests visiting on the back of a four-game losing streak on the road. Li Xiaopeng and his men haven’t lost to the Flower of Shanghai in any of their recent four h2h meetings at home since 2017.
The home win in full-time will serve as a suitable option for the ninety minutes. Besides, with their squad strength, Luneng will probably win at least one half in the game and the punters can look out for that tip too in the fixture.
