Tianjin Teda vs Shanghai SIPG Prediction & Betting tips
In the Chinese Super League, the ball rolls again about five months after the original start date. However, the format of the division has been changed: 16 teams are now competing in two equally large groups. The teams will meet in two games until September 29, followed by the playoffs for the title and against relegation.
All games of the regular season take place at the two venues Dalian and Suzhou. Beyond that, no viewers are admitted. On matchday one, Tianjin Teda and Shanghai SIPG face off. The ratings show the guests as clear favorites.
The kickers from the port city took third place last year and have a team with numerous stars on the offensive. For the match between Tianjin Teda and Shanghai SIPG, the tip is aimed at an “away win” and at least two goals by the favorite from the Chinese port city.
The team of the German coach Uli Stielike is an inconspicuous representative in the top Chinese league. Last year, seventh place in the final accounts was taken, which found Tianjin in a familiar table region.
In the past year, the team had hardly anything to do with relegation and, on the other hand, lacked the necessary consistency to establish itself in higher spheres. The best placement so far was a second place ten years ago and the only exhibit in your own trophy cabinet is a cup victory that was achieved nine years ago.
The long pause in the game has apparently ensured that the Tigers are still a bit rusty: The only friendly game last month saw a rough 0: 5 swatter against Beijing Guoan. This was against a traditional fear opponent. The previous four duels in league operations and at home FA Cup against the runner-up were also lost.
On the offensive, hopes were primarily for Sandro Wagner. The former Bayern player made a moderate debut in the Super League, but towards the end of last season Wagner turned up better and better.
That’s how the 32-year-old scored in eight of his last nine league games! However, the striker has now announced that he will no longer appear for Teda, which will weaken the attack significantly.
If you look at the squad from Shanghai, it quickly becomes clear that it is well staffed for the Super League. With the Brazilian Oscar, SIPG has the most reliable passer of the past season in its ranks and its compatriot Hulk achieved a double-digit goal result for the third time in a row last year.
The latter attacker has already said that he will leave the clubs after this season, but he is still available for the time being. On the offensive, Portuguese coach Vitor Pereira also has another powerful offensive player, Marco Arnautovic.
The Austrian came from West Ham to Shanghai in the middle of the last season and struck immediately: the 31-year-old scored no less than nine times in eleven league appearances! In view of this great offensive, the 2018 champion can once again be considered among the particularly hot candidates for the award of the title in the new season.
Especially against the background that the defense was also very stable last year: Only the champion Guangzhou Evergrande conceded fewer goals. Furthermore, the already strong team was cleverly supplemented once again.
For example, Ricardo Lopes, who also comes from Brazil, was able to sign a player who has delivered two-digit goal records to his previous employer Jeonbuk FC in K League 1 in South Korea in the past two years. He was instrumental in winning the club’s championship.
In view of the strong squad of the third year last year, as described, when Tianjin Teda and Shanghai SIPG met, the odds for a victory of the “Magic City” troop with at least two hits with difference on top are provided with value.
