Shanghai SIPG FC vs Qingdao Huanghai
China – Super League
Date: Thursday, 10 September 2020
Kick-off at 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET
Venue: Suzhou Sports Centre.
The Red Eagles are the toppers of Group B, and would have had an unbeaten record this season if not for their loss against the in-form Hebei, just the last match-day.
Suffice it to say that Vitor Pereira’s men are frustrated due to the defeat, and will be looking to make a strong comeback this week. And they have gotten themselves the perfect opportunity as well.
This Thursday, at the Suzhou Sports Centre, they are taking on one of the worst teams in the entire Chinese league.
Not only are Wu Jingui’s men a recently promoted squad (and thus inexperienced), but they are placed second to last in the table, and they have recorded a total of just one win this season. Also keep note that this loss had come against the dead-last placed Tianjin Teda.
As such, expect Shanghai SIPG to secure the three points in style this match-day.

Shanghai SIPG vs Qingdao Huanghai: Prediction
Jingui’s men are on a three-match losing run, and they had failed to score in four of their former six fixtures. They were also winless in nine of their last ten overall games, and their only win in the past eleven-month period had come against the absolute worst team in the league – Tianjin Teda.
And on the road, they have won just twice since July of 2019. On top of that, they are a newly-promoted team to this competition, and expectedly are still coming to terms with the level of competition here.
Meanwhile, their counterparts are the toppers of the table, and are easily one of the best teams in the contest. Moreover, they are desperate to record a win this game week, as their unbeaten run had come to an end in a loss against Hebei the last match-day.
Also note that the Red Eagles had last lost at home in August of 2019, and had won eight of their previous nine appearances here.
By all means, expect Shanghai SIPG to post the win this game week over Qingdao Huanghai.
