Shanghai SIPG vs Beijing Renhe
Chinese Super League
Date: Saturday, 22nd June 2019
Kick off at 12:35 UK / 13:35 CET
Venue: Shanghai Stadium (Shanghai).
The home side saw their stellar eight-match unbeaten run in the Chinese Super League brought to an abrupt halt when they succumbed to a 2-0 defeat in the clash against visitors Guangzhou Evergrande at home last week. The hosts will be keen on bouncing back to winning ways when they welcome Beijing Renhe to the Shanghai Stadium on Saturday.
Despite keeping slightly better possession of the ball and attempting more shots at goal, the home side failed to slot the ball into the back of the net in their previous game. They were schooled by the visitors who broke the deadlock through Paulinho before the interval and finally put the game out of reach with the Brazilian finding a second towards the end of the ninety minutes.
Aleksandar Stanojevic’s side, on the other hand, were thrashed by Jiangsu Suning in their last match on the road, after the latter managed to bang three goals in a span of ten minutes to finish the game at 4-1.
You can count on them to be in for an even tougher ninety minutes when they square up against Vitor Pereira’s men on Saturday.
