Bitesize Prediction: Shanghai Port vs Beijing Guoan – 12/07/24 – Soccer News

Competition: Chinese Super League

Market: Shanghai Port win

Odds: 4/11 @ Pribet

Simply looking to extend their buffer at the top of the Chinese Super League standings, Shanghai will welcome Beijing to the Pudong Stadium on Friday lunchtime.

Starting with the hosts, making real history last season as they got their hands on a second Super League crown, Shanghai are once again firing on all cylinders this time around. Leading the chase at the top of the table and once again pencilled in as a standout title contender in 2024, the Red Eagles have continued to gain a string of praise. Last seen putting in another rugged performance as they secured a 1-0 victory away at Henan Songshan, Kevin Muscat’s men are in the midst of what has become a sensational purple patch. Signing off June with a 3-1 victory against Zhejiang Professional, the one-time Wolves defender has seen his high-flying squad win all of their previous 12 consecutive appearances across all competitions. With that remarkable flurry stemming all the way back to a 1-1 stalemate against local rivals Shanghai Shenhua on April 27th, Friday’s hosts have also gained a reputation for their success on home soil. Including a 4-1 romp against Cangzhou on May 26th, Muscat’s side have won all of their last four showdowns at the Pudong Stadium by an aggregate score of 14-4.

As for the visitors, watching their own respective flurry come to an abrupt end last weekend as they suffered a shock 2-1 loss at home against Wuhan Three Towns, Beijing will be seeking an immediate response here. While Ricardo Soares’ men might still be battling it out in the chase to claim a lucrative AFC Champions League spot this season, the Imperial Guards will be concerned by their recent issues on the road. Including a 2-1 defeat against Henan Songshan on June 15th, the former Estoril boss has seen his squad muster just a single point from any of their previous three Super League appearances away from the Workers Stadium. It should also be highlighted, the Greens have mustered just a sole top-flight clean sheet on their travels since the end of March. Despite securing a 2-1 victory when they travelled to the defending Super League champions last season, we are backing a home victory on Friday lunchtime.
