Tianjin Teda: In average shape (Recent Form: WLWDLW)
Tianjin Teda are on 7th place in Chinese Super League with 22 points (6 wins, 4 draws, 6 losses; goal difference 22:22). They have currently 11 points of advantage over 15th Beijing Renhe (relegation zone), whereas the distance to 3rd Shanghai SIPG (AFC Champions League) is 18 points at the moment. Therefore, it appears they have not much to play for although there are still many games left to play in this season. The team is in average – 2 wins, 1 draw, 2 losses in last 5 league matches. Tianjin Teda take on Guangzhou Evergrande on Thursday in the next league fixture. Tianjin Teda have collected 14 points in 8 home games to date (4 wins, 2 draws, 2 defeats; goal difference 13:11).
Guangzhou Evergrande: Seven victories in a row in CSL (Recent Form: WWDWWW)
Guangzhou Evergrande sit on 2nd position in the standings with 40 points (13 wins, 1 draw, 2 defeats; goal difference 32:12). They are now 2 points shy of 1st Beijing Guoan, so it’s possible to challenge for the championship title. Their recent form is very good as Guangzhou Evergrande won their last 7 games in CSL. In the meantime, they advanced to quarter-finals of AFC Champions League after eliminating Shandong Luneng (5:4 on aggregate after penalty shoot-out). Now it’s time for an away encounter. Guangzhou Evergrande have collected 21 points in 8 matches on the road (7 wins, 0 draws, 1 loss; goal difference 19:7).
THE BETTING VERDICT:
To sum up, it seems that this might be an interesting clash with a couple of goals. There are usually quite many goals in Tianjin Teda’s home matches, whereas Guangzhou Evergrande have the most efficient attack in entire league on the road. In my opinion this may be an open game.
