Shandong Luneng vs Shanghai Shenhua Prediction & Betting tips
Shandong Luneng and Shanghai Shenhua meet forces, in a match for the 3rd day of the CSL. The history of recent direct confrontations is favorable to the home team, which has recorded 3 wins and 3 draws in the last 6 games. The last head ‑ to ‑ head between these two teams, on 21‑09‑2019, ended with a draw by (2‑2). The home advantage may play an important role in this match, since both teams present considerable differences in the results achieved at home and away.
Shandong Luneng :
Currently in 3rd position, the home team has so far won 4 points. On the 1st day they managed to beat Dalian Yifang by (2‑3). On the next day, the final score was a draw (0‑0) in the visit to Jiangsu Suning. This is a stronger team with the support of their fans, since in the last 30 games they have recorded 4 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses as a visitor; against 12 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss in his stadium. In their last 5 home matches Shandong Luneng has recorded 4 wins and 1 draw. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches.
Looking to present themselves as one of the strongest teams in Group A, where they are expected to fight for the top positions with Guangzhou Evergrande and Jiangsu Suning, Shandong Luneng’s team comes to this third day of the Chinese Super League in third place in the leaderboard, with the same four points as Jiangsu Suning and one more than Shanghai Shenhua, his next rival. After winning in the opening match against Dalian Yifang (2-3), the team led by coach Li Xiaopeng went no further than a 0-0 draw on the final day, against Jiangsu Suning. It was a game without a great history and marked by the lack of inspiration of both teams at the time of offensive creation.
Shanghai Shenhua :
Currently in 5th position, the visiting team has so far won 3 points. On the 1st day they lost out to Guangzhou Evergrande by (2‑0). On the next day, the final scoreboard recorded a (3‑2) victory in the home game against Shenzhen. This is a stronger team with the support of their fans, since in the last 30 games they have recorded 2 wins, 4 draws and 9 losses as a visitor; against 7 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses in his stadium. In their last 5 away matches, Shanghai Shenhua has recorded 2 draws and 3 losses. The team has not been very strong defensively, since it has always suffered goals in the last 10 matches, but its attack has marked regularly, since it has scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches.
Under the technical direction of Choi Kang-Hee, the Shanghai Shenhua intends to continue, in the new season, the good form with which it ended last season, when it conquered the China Cup. In the Group A leaderboard, the Shanghai team now ranks fourth, with the same three points as Shenzhen and one behind Jiangsu Suning and Shandong Luneng. In their debut, Kang-Hee’s team lost to Guangzhou Evergrande (2-0) and only won their first match on matchday two. In the match against Shenzhen, the victory was 3-2 and with goals from Zhao Mingjian (9 ‘), Zhu Baojie (48’) and Kim Shin-Wook (63 ‘).
