For all of our match predictions, pre-game poll and statistics for Tianjin TEDA v Shanghai Shenhua, scroll down including the latest game odds.
Tianjin TEDA head into this fixture after a 0-0 2020 Super League drawn result vs Beijing Sinobo Guoan.
Tianjin TEDA have really struggled up front in recent times. Their goals record stands at just 3 vs opposition teams over their previous 6 outings. In those games, Tianjin TEDA have also seen the tally of goals against them come to 9.
Shanghai Shenhua will come into the match following a 3-2 2020 Super League win as they beat Dalian Professional in their previous outing.
The numbers tell their own story, and Shanghai Shenhua have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 9 goals overall. Defensively, Flower of Shanghai can certainly do much better. That trend won’t necessarily be carried forward into this game, of course.

Team News: Tianjin TEDA
Tianjin TEDA manager Yu Genwei has zero fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this match with a completely healthy squad to choose from.
Team News: Shanghai Shenhua
Shenhua boss Kang-hee Choi has to currently contend with reduced team options. Chenjie Zhu (Tibia Fracture), Cheng Zeng (Fractured Rib) and Xinli Peng (Fibula Fracture) are not able to play. Yue Zhu will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We’re inclined to think that Tianjin TEDA could find themselves struggling to break down this Shanghai Shenhua team who we reckon will end up scoring and staying ahead.
We’ve gone for a good tussle with a 0-1 win for Shanghai Shenhua at the end of this game.
Looking forward to watching this one unfold.
