Shenzhen FC vs Henan Jianye
China – Super League
Date: Monday, 10 August 2020
Kick-off at 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET
Venue: Dalian Sports Center Stadium.
The Youth Army had barely managed to avoid relegation the last season, as they finished second to last in the table – with just 21 points from their 30 fixtures.
They have still shown no signs of improvement, and have a 100% winless record this campaign, disregarding their win against the dead-last placed Guangzhou R&F.
Meanwhile, the Red Devils had finished with a solid 20 points more than Roberto Donadoni’s men, and have a good h2h record against them as well.
Likely, Henan Jianye are expected to be the better team on the pitch this Monday.
Shenzhen vs Henan Jianye: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Wang Baoshan’s men have lost just twice against this opponent in the past decade.
- Seven of the former twelve games had goals from both teams.
- Two of the previous three match-ups had six or more goals.
- Since 2008, 100% of encounters at this stadium have had goals from both teams, as well as three or more goals.
Shenzhen vs Henan Jianye: Prediction
The Youth Army were winless in 23 of their last 25 overall games, and the only two wins in this stretch had come against the same team – the earlier-mentioned dead-last placed Guanzhou R&F. Going on, they have a total of just three wins at home in the past 16 months.
On the other hand, their counterparts had 20 points more in the league table the last season, and were unbeaten in seven of their last eight overall fixtures. As such, expect Shenzhen to be the victor this Monday.
However, understand that they have been struggling on the road for a very long time, and that they have a 100% winless record in h2h clashes at this stadium. In fact, they are winless in their last 12 road trips and had conceded two or more goals in eight of their preceding nine away games.
For the reasons, expect the hosts to score at least once.
