Tianjin TEDA vs Shanghai SIPG FC Match preview
Tianjin TEDA had finished last season with a 2-0 win at home against Chongqing Lifan. They had a mixed form towards the end of last season and it was clear in their unstable league run.
The host had only 3 defeats in their entire 15 home matches last season and was on a five-game winning streak at home before they wrapped up the campaign that season.
In the meantime, Shanghai SIPG FC has lost only two of their 15 away fixtures in the campaign last season, with just one win coming within their last five outings.
The visitor will visit after a 6-0 win at home against Shenzhen in early December last year.
However, the visitor hasn’t lost to Tianjin in any of their h2h clashes since 2013. They have an 82% win rate over the home team in the league overall.
Tianjin TEDA vs Shanghai SIPG FC Head-to-head (h2h)
- The visitor is unbeaten in all their clashes since 2013.
- Their previous encounter gave a 5-1 home win for Red Eagles.
- Only 5 of their 14 meetings have ended in a draw.
- Both teams have scored in four of the last five fixtures.
- Four of Red Eagle’s last five visits saw them keeping a clean sheet.
Tianjin TEDA vs Shanghai SIPG FC Prediction
Tianjin TEDA ended their last season in a pleasant note, but it will take them more than that to compete against a team that reached close to the title last season in the campaign.
They have an excellent record at home and their home ground advantage will not be that off. However, considering the Red Eagles having a better away form will put the host out of the picture.
Besides, the Tigers have won none of their h2h clashes with the visitor so far. Hence, the home win in full-time with 1.40 odds will probably be the best bet in the encounter for the punters.
Since the league is starting with fresh legs, there will be more action, and nothing less of a high-scoring affair can be expected in ninety minutes. The tip for over 2.5 goals will thus be a probable bet.
