Shanghai SIPG, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 1-2 AFC Champions League victory vs Yokohama F. Marinos.
The Red Eagles have not been the best at stopping their opponents lately, although they’ve also managed to hit the back of the net themselves. Over their last 6 matches, The Red Eagles have seen their goal breached in 6 of them as well as managing to get on the scoresheet in 5 of those matches. We shall soon see whether or not that trend will end up being sustained in this game.
After a loss in their previous game against Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors in AFC Champions League competition, Sydney FC and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
Steve Corica's Sydney FC have slotted home a total of 6 times in the course of their latest 6 matches. The number of goals that have been scored against them during those same clashes comes to 6.
Team News: Shanghai SIPG
There is just the lone fitness concern for the Shanghai SIPG gaffer Vítor Pereira to be concerned about from an otherwise complete squad. Junling Yan (Eye Injury) misses out.
Team News: Sydney FC
Due to a completely injury-free squad available to choose from, Sydney FC manager Steve Corica doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of before this clash.
We’re inclined to think that Shanghai SIPG will probably fashion enough chances to find the net more than once while possibly not conceding when they face Sydney FC, who might well find it difficult getting on the scoresheet.
Therefore, we are anticipating a decent 2-0 margin for Shanghai SIPG at the end of the match.
