Shanghai Port and Guangzhou are the only two teams with something to fight for in the final round of the Chinese Super League. While both teams have qualified at least for the qualifications for the AFC Champions League, it is yet to be decided which team will be sent directly to the groups and which one will have to win its place.
Shanghai Port vs Guangzhou: Top Free Betting Tips
Shanghai Port and Guangzhou are separated by just two points and a win here could shift their places in the standings. Guangzhou have been the most impressive team since the restart (apart from the champions, of course) although they were fortunate not to play against Shandong Taishan. Which side will win the final three points of this season and claim the official spot in the next AFC Champions League?
Total Goals – Under 2.5
While we expect to see a lot of goals in the other three games of the final round, we do not expect to see this happen in this fixture. This will be the only important match and we expect to see both teams show their best football. The previous match between them from two weeks ago ended in a goalless 0:0 draw. While each team could win the match here, we expect to see something similar to the goalles draw in the previous head-to-head and there shouldn't be more than 2 goals in this fixture.
Match Result – Shanghai Port
While Shanghai Port have had a disappointing season that left them out of the title fight all too early, it is a fact that they have the much stronger team than Guangzhou. And while the visitors played quite well in the recent weeks, Shanghai Port have been dominating in all of their games, including the recent 2:2 draw against the Champions. While the previous game didn't have a winner, we expect Shanghai Port to win this final fixture and get to that second place in the standings, and guarantee their participation in the international tournament.
Team Total Goals – Guangzhou Under 0.5
Shanghai Port conceded quite a few goals since the beginning of the second stage but more than one in just 2 cases – both games against the champions. Against all other teams, they did not concede more than once in a game. We do not see how Guangzhou will manage to score twice against this strong opponent, so we suggest this as a perfect combination for a betting slip with several selections for a lot of money. We should mention that Shanghai Port have the best defense in the entire league and especially at home, they have conceded a total of 4 goals in 10 fixtures – two of those against Shandong Taishan. Overall, it is highly unlikely that Guangzhou will score in this fixture.
