Shanghai Shenhua vs Guangzhou Evergrande Prediction & Match Preview

Shanghai Shenhua vs Guangzhou Evergrande
China Super League
Date: Monday, 1st July 2019
Kick off at 12:35 UK/ 13:35 CET
Venue: Hongkou Football Stadium.

Shanghai Shenhua have really struggled this season and come into this match in 14th place but just one position above the relegation zone. Their form has been poor, but they did raise some hopes by winning their last game against Jiangsu Suning who are in 6th place.

Shanghai are just one point from the bottom two clubs who go down in China’s Super League and at home they have they have the worst record in the league where from 6 games they have won 1, drawn 1 and lost 4. But they are a team that remain unpredictable  as their four home games before the goal-less stalemate versus Chongqing Lifan saw them scoring 9 times. However, poor defensive work came to hurt them and let in same number of goals.

Shenhua’s only home win this season happened against Beijing Renhe who are rock bottom of the log, that win came by 5-1.

Guangzhou Evergrande are 2nd in the league table and come into this game as the best form side in the league after winning their last five games in a row. They seem to mean business and have scored 9 goals in their last 3 matches.

Away from home Guangzhou have won their last 4 games in a row and they have been defeated just once which was to Beijing in 1st place. There is currently a 5-point gap to the teams so Guangzhou need to be focused and they cannot allow a wider gap to open up.

Shanghai Shenhua vs Guangzhou Evergrande: Head to Head

Shanghai Shenhua vs Guangzhou Evergrande: Prediction

This won’t be an easy game for Guangzhou, but we are going to go for them to get the win in what could potentially be a very good and open game with many attacks from both sides.

The away side simply can’t afford to lose this game if Beijing win again and so will have to be professional throughout, but they have a brilliant away record and it is hard to go against them.

We will also back over 2.5 goals as this has a great history of happening in these games.
