On July 30, within the framework of the tenth round of the first stage of the Chinese Super League, the group A “Shenzhen” – “Guangzhou” will meet at the Huadu Stadium. Whose unbeaten streak is destined to end? Read about it in our forecast.
Although “Shenzhen” is only in third place in the table, its position in it is now such that it does not mean anything at all. Both Yordi Cruyff’s charges, their current opponent, and Shandong Taishan have 18 points each. The number of victories is the same for everyone (five each), so the positions are distributed according to the goal difference. And by the end of this game day, the situation will surely change.
The nominal hosts played four matches in July, three of which ended in victories. It was not possible only to break the resistance of “Henan” (0: 0), but to the gates of “Cangzhou” (2: 1), “Chongqing Athletic” (3: 0) and “Qingdao” (4: 1) it turned out to pick up the necessary keys. But what will the players demonstrate to us in the battle with a more serious opponent?
Guangzhou scored fewer points in July than Shenzhen as a percentage, as they played one more match in the summer. Fabio Cannavaro’s team also won three meetings, and two of them ended in a draw. It is very important that the players were able to quickly switch from the unsuccessful performance in the Champions League, which was expected to be and should have been.
Moreover, the “tigers” also failed to take three points in the duel with “Henan” (1: 1). The team was also ruined by the weak defensive play in the confrontation with the neighbors – “Guangzhou City” (3: 3). With Shandong Taishan (2: 1) and Chongqing Athletic (3: 1), there were already much fewer such problems, and the rivalry with Qingdao (6: 0) was more like training.
Historically, for Shenzhen, the Tigers are an extremely inconvenient rival, whom they have never managed to beat in the entire history of personal meetings (one draw and ten defeats). Therefore, we will not go against statistics, and the favorite with clubs of a higher rank does not allow himself to be weak, almost always taking his own.
Our prediction is that Guangzhou will win with a handicap (0) with 1.75 odds from 1xbet v.83.
Despite the fact that the teams are at the top of the list in terms of the average performance of the matches with their participation (2.9 goals and 3.3, respectively), in this case we will make a choice in favor of the bottom total. In three of the last five games, the ball has been in the net no more than two times. More often than not, the emphasis was on defense rather than offense.
Second bet – total under 2.5 goals with odds 1.99
