Competition: Chinese Super League

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 3/5 @ Pribet

In what is a real showdown at the top of the Chinese Super League table, Shanghai Port will welcome Chengdu Rongcheng to the Pudong Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, making real history last season as they got their hands on a second Super League crown, Shanghai are in the midst of another astonishing domestic romp. Last seen over the weekend picking up an action-packed 5-3 victory away at Qingdao West Coast, Kevin Muscat’s men are certainly firing on all cylinders. Tipped as a leading contender to defend their Chinese title in 2024, the former Melbourne Victory boss has not seen his squad suffer a single defeat from any of their previous 11 appearances across all competitions. In fact, winning all of their last four showdowns on the bounce, Shanghai have also gained a major reputation for their clinical performances in the final third. Including a 5-2 win against Changchun Yatai earlier in the month, Muscat’s men have remarkably notched 21 goals in just their previous four consecutive victories. However, it should be highlighted, all of Shanghai’s last five matchups at the Pudong Stadium have finished with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, although Chengdu might have eventually fallen short in the race to clinch a lucrative AFC Champions League ticket, the Reds have their sights firmly set on mounting another top-three charge. Although Seo Jung-won’s men might have opened May in the midst of a minor wobble, the Sichuan-based outfit have turned a recent corner. Last seen over the weekend picking up a thumping 4-1 romp away at Meizhou Hakka, Wednesday’s guests have now collected back-to-back Super league victories. In fact, including an action-packed 4-2 win against Henan Songshan Longmen on May 10th, Chengdu have notched eight goals in their consecutive top-flight victories. Despite facing what will be a real challenge here, Jung-won’s men have gained a reputation for their lively outcomes. In fact, along with all of their previous four Super League appearances, the Reds have also seen six of their last seven outings finish with both teams getting on the scoresheet. In a showdown that could see chances come thick and fast, we are expecting a similar outcome.

Bet: Both teams to score at Shanghai Port vs Chengdu Rongcheng 3/5 for Wednesday’s Chinese Super League battle @ Pribet
