Shanghai Shenhua vs Henan Songshan Longmen: Top Free Betting Tips
Shanghai Shenhua and Henan Songshan Longmen produced a curious fixture two weeks ago – Henan managed to win surprisingly with 2:0 at home. Now, they will be the visitors and Shanghai Shenhua will try to take revenge even though there is no other purpose behind this match.
Total Goals – Under 2.5
Shanghai Shenhua and Henan Songshan Longmen have had a surprisingly low number of goals in their recent games although the teams are generally much stronger than all other in the Relegation Group. And the last match between them also ended with under 2.5 goals when Henan won with 2:0. Now that the season is almost over and there is no stake here, this match will either have a surprisingly high number of goals or none at all. We expect the second option as neither side will want to lose its last game of the season.
Match Result – Shanghai Shenhua
After this disappointing season, Shanghai Shenhua at least performed well in the final rounds and will win the Relegation Group. Not that it means anything significant but it still shows that the team is stronger than all others in this group. Even in the regular season, they lost just one home game, which shows how strong they are at home. Now, after the loss in the previous head-to-head, we expect that Shanghai Shenhua will do their best to get revenge for this surprising result even though it wouldn't mean anything at all at this point.
Team Total Goals – Henan Songshan Longmen Under 0.5 Goals
Give or take, Henan Songshan Longmen have had the lowest number of goals in their games this season from the entire Chinese Super League – all 15 other teams have seen a lot more action than them. This means that the team neither scores nor concedes a lot in their matches. For this reason, we do not expect them to score a goal as visitors at Shanghai. Henan scored just one goal in their four away games since the restart of the season and that was against Wuhan. Shanghai Shenhua are much stronger and much better hosts – we expect them to keep the net clean and win without major issues.
