Shanghai SIPG: Need a win desperately (Recent Form: DDDWDW)
I have written already about Shanghai SIPG and that they are having a really good season overall, but unfortunately for the club, as of recently they are in somewhat of a minicrisis in their standards they made at the start of the season and the four draws in a row in the Super League are definitely a really bad run of results for the club, with them now being left a lot behind the league leaders. The team was able to collect fifty points in their opening twenty two league games so far, losing just twice in this period (15-5-2), but still, like I said, the standard at the top is so big, that this amount of points is good only for the third spot, as well as currently they are a whole eight points behind the league leaders Guangzhou Evergrande. And that distance came just in the last four rounds, where the leaders took the maximum points, while Shanghai made four consecutive draws and another mistake would just be too much tomorrow. However, during this period only one of these draws came in front of their fans, where the club were able to collect ten points in their last four league games (3-1-0), having a goal difference of nine goals scored and just one single one conceded. Snanghai is also still both in the FA Cup and in the Champions League, but right now they need to concentrate on improving their Super League performance.
Tianjin Teda: Bad away from home (Recent Form: WWLLDL)
Tianjin Teda is having a good season so far, being in the first half of the table with twenty nine points collected so far (8-5-9) and being miles ahead of the danger zone. However, the main reason for that good performance is their home run, where the club collected twenty one of these points (6-3-3). In the same time as visitors they had already lost six times in their opening ten visits, collecting only eight points (2-2-6), as well as are with just one single point from their last five away league games (0-1-4).
The Betting Verdict:
Shanghai SIPG is surely not in good run recently, but still I think that it is about time for them to get on the winning ways and collect three points, which should happen rather easily tomorrow.
