Guangzhou City vs Shanghai Shenhua Match Analysis & Prediction
14/12/2022 2:30 pm
With the Chinese Super League season approaching its conclusion, Shanghai Shenhua sit in mid-table going into Wednesday’s encounter at Jinjiang Sports Center with a Guangzhou City side who find themselves in the relegation zone.
Guangzhou City are currently sitting in 17th place in the league standings, having played 30 matches and collected just 16 points, but they are just one point adrift of safety of 15th place with two games remaining to end the season.
Li Weifeng’s side earned a point in their last Chinese Super League match, playing out a goalless draw with Guangzhou FC at Jinjiang Football Training Center Stadium, which extended their winless run to eight matches, with just one draw and seven losses.
With their last fixture of the season coming against Zhejiang Professional – who are currently sitting in third place – Guangzhou City will need to capitalize on this game as they face a favourable opponent who are occupying a spot in the bottom half of the league table and have also struggled for results in recent weeks.
Meanwhile, Shanghai Shenhua enter the contest off the back of a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Dalian Pro in their last Chinese Super League at Jianjin Sports Center, which has left them in 12th place on 39 points. They have scored 35 goals and conceded 32 through their 30 matches.
Wu Jingui’s side claimed their last league victory 1-0 away at Meizhou Hakka on December 1, and they have lost each of their two subsequent matches which were played on home ground, and they will be hoping to get back to winning ways this time around away at Jinjiang Sports Center.
The last Chinese Super League encounter between the sides, an October match at Hongkou Stadium, ended in a 1-1 draw, with Gui Hong scoring for Guangzhou City in the 62nd minute before Chritian Bassogog netted the equaliser for Shanghai Shenhua in the 103rd minute from the spot.
