Competition: Chinese Super League

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 2/3 @ 1xBet

Looking to extend their buffer at the top of the Super League table on Friday lunchtime, Shanghai Port will travel to a high-flying Henan.

Starting with the hosts, while Henan might have opened up the 2024 campaign in the midst of a major Super League struggle, Nam Ki-il’s men have come roaring back in some style. Last seen putting in a rampant display as they stormed their way to a thumping 3-0 victory against Meizhou Hakka, the Red Devils have come skyrocketing up the top-flight standings. Finding a route into the top-half, the former Seongnam boss has seen his resurgent squad win all of their previous four appearances across all competitions. Making a real statement on June 15th as they secured a 2-1 win at home against AFC Champions League chasers Beijing Guoan, Ki-il’s camp are enjoying what has become their mist fruitful spell of the season so far. Likewise, springing a major upset last season when they claimed a 3-1 victory when they welcomed Shanghai to the Hanghai Stadium, Henan will be desperately seeking a repeat outcome this weekend.

As for the visitors, making real history last season as they got their hands on a second Super League crown, Shanghai have only continued on another stellar domestic romp this season. Once again battling it out at the top of the table and holding a two-point buffer over the chasing pack, Kevin Muscat’s men are riding a major wave of momentum. Last seen storming their way to a routine 3-1 victory at home against Zhejiang Professional, the Red Eagles have won all of their previous 11 consecutive appearances across all competitions. Simply looking to make another statement here, the former Melbourne Victory boss will be excited by his side’s free-scoring performances. In fact, Shanghai have recorded 53 goals in their 17 Super League matchups this season. However, it should be noted, with each of the previous six meetings between Friday’s opponents finishing with both teams finding the net, we are expecting a similar outcome here.

Bet: Both teams to score at Henan Songshan Longmen vs Shanghai Port 2/3 for Friday’s Chinese Super League matchup @ 1xBet
