Beijing Sinobo Guoan
Beijing Sinobo Guoan won’t want a repeat of their last result here following the 2-0 2020 Super League defeat in their last game at the hands of Changchun Yatai.
Beijing Sinobo Guoan have really struggled up front in more recent games. Their ‘goals for’ figure stands at just 4 vs opponents over the course of their last six matches. In those meetings, Imperial Guards have also seen the number of goals scored against them come to 13.
Shanghai Shenhua head into the clash following a 1-3 2020 Super League win against Tianjin TEDA in their previous fixture.
Shanghai Shenhua have attacked well leading up to this encounter, having scored 11 times in their previous 6 matches. Having said that, Flower of Shanghai have been somewhat leaky at the back, having also been scored against in 6 of those same outings. That kind of pattern isn’t assured to be continued into this match, of course.
Head to head
A look at their past head to head clashes dating back to 23/07/2017 shows us that Beijing Sinobo Guoan have won 4 of them & Shanghai Shenhua 1, with the tally of draws standing at 1.
20 goals were shared by the two clubs throughout the course of those matches, with 12 for Imperial Guards and 8 netted by Flower of Shanghai. That’s an average goals per game of 3.33.
Team News: Beijing Sinobo Guoan
Beijing Sinobo Guoan manager Slaven Bilić will be happy not to have any fitness concerns at all before this match owing to a completely healthy squad available to select from.
Team News: Shanghai Shenhua
Shenhua boss Kang-hee Choi has not got a full squad to pick from. Xinli Peng (Fibula Fracture), Chenjie Zhu (Tibia Fracture) and Cheng Zeng (Fractured Rib) will miss out on this game. Yue Zhu will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We’ve got the feeling that Shanghai Shenhua and Beijing Sinobo Guoan should both get enough opportunities to score, although it’s hard to separate the two.
A close call, and we think a draw is quite likely. We’re therefore tipping a very close game with a 1-1 score at the end of this one.
