    Shanghai SIPG and Guangzhou Evergrande clash in big Super League clash

    On Friday afternoon, two of the top teams in the Chinese Super League clash at the Shanghai Stadium, as Shanghai SIPG host Guangzhou.

    Both teams look to be in a strong position to challenge for the Super League title this season. Shanghai are second place in the table and two points behind leaders Beijing Guoan, while the visitors are trailing the team from the capital by five points.

    The two teams will feel that they both have a good chance of recording a vital victory in this clash, as both are in strong form.

    Shanghai have recorded six straight wins in the Chinese Super League while scoring two goals in five of their last six league matches.

    Guangzhou’s form has not quite matched the home sides, but they have recorded three consecutive wins, and are four games unbeaten in the Chinese top-flight. Like their opponents, the visitors have been prolific of late in the league, scoring at least two goals in three in their last four league games.

    Shanghai’s home record in the Chinese top-flight on home soil has been strong, as they have won their last four home games.

    The visitors have been highly potent in front of goal at the Shanghai Stadium too, scoring at least two goals in their last 16 league games on home soil.

    Guangzhou have been dangerous opponents on the road, winning four of their last five matches on their travels. Their recent away games have been relatively high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in three of their last four away matches.

    Understandably considering both teams recent high-scoring games, Forebet predicts that the home side will record a victory in a high-scoring clash. The fact that the last six meetings between these two sides have produced over 2.5 goals suggest that this clash could be a highly entertaining encounter.
