Shanghai SIPG vs Shanghai Shenhua
Chinese Super League
Date: Saturday, 6 July 2019
Kick-off: 12:35 UK / 13:35 CET
Venue: Shanghai Stadium (Shanghai).
The home team pulled off a very comfortable win in their last game against Beijing Renhe, on home soil, with the match finishing 3-0 at the end of the ninety minutes. The hosts enjoyed the better ball possession in that fixture but failed to break the deadlock in the first half.
The squad certainly began the second half on a much stronger note and sealed the game with three different players getting on the scoresheet. They also made 10 attempts at goal, four of which were on target.
Their foes Shanghai Shenhua, on the other hand, were handed a 3-0 defeat in their last home game against Guangzhou Evergrande. However, they enjoyed a slightly better result in their trip on the road, against Jiangsu Suning, where they won by a 1-0 scoreline. Giovanni Moreno scored the only goal in that fixture despite the visitors getting lesser time on the ball and making just eight attempts at goal.
The teams are certainly far away from each other on the table, with the hosts currently sitting on third with thirty-seven points and the away side on fourteenth with twelve points. The three points for the home side will see them edging closer to the top spot, while a win for the visitors would ease the pressure on them as they are dangerously close to the relegation zone.
