Qingdao vs Shanghai Shenhua: Top Free Betting Tips
Qingdao won a surprising game last week but then returned to the losing path in the previous round. The team remains in the relegation zone and is desperate for points. Will Shanghai give them a chance like a team that has already secured its spot next season or not?
Total Goals – Over 2.5
Both sides had quite a few over 2.5 games for a league like the Chinese but in Qingdao's case, it was almost never them who scored the goals in those games. This changed since the restart because they now face only the weaker 8 in the league and not the leading teams. Qingdao played 4 matches to date and all four ended with more than 2 goals – 1:2, 1:2, 2:5, 3:0. As you can see, they scored in three of those games at least once. Shanghai, on the other hand, had just 2 over 2.5 games and both were at home. Nevertheless, their two visits ended with 2 goals each, so in a match against the weakest opponent, we expect them to be much more active.
Match Result / Both Teams To Score – Yes
The match result odds here are almost non-existent – there is simply too big of a difference between those teams and bookies have Shanghai as the massive favorite. While we expect the team to win, we expect to see at least one goal from Qingdao as well. As mentioned already, they show signs of improvement in attack – at least, they scored in 3/4 games to date. Shanghai Shenhua do not seem too motivated in away games and they conceded three goals in just two. The team is already safe and ahead of all others, so they can play without additional stress and we expect to see a thrilling game with lots of goals and a win for the visitors.
2nd Half Goals – Over 1.5
If you take a look at the Chinese Super League, you will see that goals rarely fall before the break – in most games, the action occurs in the second half and in most cases – in the final 20 minutes. So, we expect to see a lot of goals in this match but we imagine that most of them will be scored in the second half of the game or in the final minutes. In each case, we expect to see at least 2 goals after the break.
