Prediction for the Changchun Yatai vs Shandong Taishan match:
Hao Wei’s side have reached the top and become Chinese Super League champions this season. Everything is already decided for them, however, as well as for today’s home team, because they already have no chance to even qualify for the Champions League next season, so we can expect open and not aggressive football with a couple of goals.
As we wrote earlier, Shandong Taishan have not lost to this side in ten games in a row. Remarkably, over the last five meetings, they have consistently scored two goals in 90 minutes of play, either at home or away.
In general, both sides have performed very well this season. There was a lot of beautiful and energetic football from these teams, but no matter how you look at it, on paper the visitors will be the favourites in this meeting. They’ve only lost one away game all season, they’re scoring on average at 2.42 and conceding 0.75 per away game, and they’ve also gone seven games without defeat on the road so far. By the way, among all the teams in the league, the team from Shandong province is the best away team.
The Changchun-based side also have a decent record, but worse than the league champions. Two defeats and three draws, and a triumph in the remaining games – that’s what the home side have by Matchday 22. At the same time, the ball is in the opponents’ goal an average of 1.5 times, and 0.67 times out of their own.
Given the fact that at the end of the season there is less and less energy left, and fatigue is building up, we wouldn’t take a clean win for the former, because everything is already decided for them, although it’s not the best idea to end such a great season with a defeat. With both Changchun Yatai and the previous rounds, the visitors very often crossed the mark of two goals or more, so let’s bet on it.
Editor’s Prediction: IT2O (1.5).
