Image title

Although the last couple of days haven’t been much good, we can’t complain with results in 2017. Today we hope to push on and beat the bookmakers senseless, and we are going to start with a couple of games in China. For the site we chose this match has it’s easier to find it on TV for those wanting to follow!

GUANGZHOU R & F vs SHANGHAI SIPG - CHINA SUPERLEAGUE

From what we understand both teams have their best XI available, so their should be no excuses on that score. Guangzhou R & F are currently fifth in the league table after 12 games, albeit nine points behind second placed SIPG. However, unlike with the visitors who have won their last five matches, the hosts are currently five league games without a win. 

In the last round the Blue Lions conceded a 93rd minute equaliser in Henan Jiyane (1-1). And, prior to that they had drawn another three and lost one from their last four. Two of those matches were at home to Hebei (1-1) and Shanghai Shenhua (0-0), boss Dragan Stojkovic could have no complaints about sharing the points.

Although it will be hard to get past perennial title winners Guangzhou Evergrande , we believe SIPG can go very close this year. A win today would close the gap at the top to just two points, so their is plenty for Andre Villas Boas’s side to play for. In fact, the Red Eagles are also in the quarter finals of the AFC champions league, and in the next round they will play the Evergrande !!

The secret to the visitors  success is a number of things, although the one that stands out is the pairing of Oscar with Hulk. While it took the Brazilian duo a while to gel, they are terrifying most super league defences now. With that said it’s not just about that pair, because other strikers such has Wu and Wei are helping to stretch opponents. We could also say the midfield is the most creative in the league, and their is no reason not to believe in their defence.

SIPG won their last six competitive matches, and three of them was away. That would suggest they have not got used to the traveling, so this trip shouldn’t be a burden!

Visitors appear invincible at the moment - get stuck in!
