Shenzhen FC vs Tianjin Teda
China – Super League
Date Sunday, 16 June 2019
Kick Off @ 12:35 UK/ 13:35 CET
Venue: Shenzhen Universiade Sports Centre (Shenzhen).
The home side Shenzhen FC are currently on a lousy run of form, having lost all of their last four matches in the league, with their most recent loss coming on the road at the hands of Wuhan Zall.
Their last home match was a big disappointment as well, with the visitors Dalian Yifang F.C. coming from behind to turn a 1-0 scoreline into a 2-1 victory in the latter’s favor.
The pressure will definitely be on the Shenzhen side when they welcome visitors Tianjin Teda to the Shenzhen University Sports Centre on Sunday, as a potential fifth straight defeat could be looming large.
The visitors, who are currently seventh in the league, will be hoping to take the win as the three points would see them edge closer to a top-five spot in the table. The away side are already level on points with two other teams in the table, but their slightly better goal difference has kept them floating above the others.

Shenzhen FC vs Tianjin Teda Prediction
The visitors Tianjin Teda are most likely to outclass the home side Shenzhen in their clash on Sunday. The home side have been very unimpressive at home, managing just one victory in their last four home matches.
The away side, on the other hand, have succumbed to a defeat only once in their last five outings. Two out of their last four away wins saw them slotting three goals each into the opposition’s net.
The visitors are more than likely to score a couple of goals against the Shenzhen side as well, which is something that hosts will have to very cautious of. They will especially have to be very vigilant of the away side’s lethal forward Johnathan, who is currently the third highest goal scorer in the league with nine goals.
The home side can definitely forget the prospect of finishing the game with a clean sheet, and will rather have to focus on finishing the ninety minutes with a dignified scoreline.
