Competition: Chinese Super League

Market: Shanghai Port win

Odds: 1/2 @ 1xBet

Hoping to find a route to the top of the Super League table on Friday lunchtime, Shanghai Port will travel to Tianjin Jinmen Tiger.

Starting with the hosts, watching their four-match unbeaten run come to an abrupt end as they slumped to a 3-1 defeat away at Qingdao Hainiu on May 26th, Tianjin have continued to show some extended inconsistencies since opening up the 2024 campaign. Almost sat in Super League limbo, the Tigers have managed to muster just a pair of victories from any of their previous nine consecutive top-flight appearances. With that extended wobble stemming all the way back to April 10th, Yu Genwei will certainly have a mounting headache over his side’s struggles on home soil. In fact, continuing on from last season, Friday’s hosts have remarkably failed to collect a single Super League win at the TEDA Soccer Stadium from any of their previous eight straight outings. Likewise, hit with a 2-1 defeat when they last met Shanghai 10 months ago, Tianjin will be bracing themselves for another stern examination this weekend.

As for the visitors, making real history last season as they got their hands on a first Super League crown since 2018, Shanghai have their sights firmly set on defending their crown this time out. Last seen on May 26th storming their way to a thumping 4-1 victory against Cangzhou, the Red Eagles will be looking to skyrocket their way back to the top of the table here. Picking up 33 points from their 13 top-flight appearances this year and yet to suffer a single Super League defeat, Kevin Muscat’s men are riding a major wave of momentum. Winning all of their previous six straight outings, the Reds have also gained a major reputation for their free-scoring performances in the final third. In fact, the Chinese giants have notched 43 goals so far this season and they will certainly be smelling another real opportunity on Friday lunchtime. It should be noted, Shanghai have won all of their last four away fixtures by an aggregate score of 19-3.

Bet: Shanghai Port 1/2 to beat Tianjin Jinmen Tiger in Friday’s Chinese Super League battle @ 1xBet
