As the season has taken off in full swing, this team boasts of 3 wins and 3 losses. They are currently winning 50% of their games. Their last 6 games have seen the team win and lose both home and away. One of these matches ended in a loss to Shenhua while playing away, on the 8th of this month. These statistics beg the question as to whether their next matchup will be a 50-50 chance of winning or losing too. Incidentally, their recent win while home only led to a 1-goal margin. This win was against a team that is currently in the relegation stage; i.e. Guangzhou FC.
Shenhua is riding high on the table and sitting pretty at number 2 overall. Their last 10 games ended in wins and others draw; no losses. The team has not lost an away game since December 2021, in this tournament. Statistics show that the team is the first to score in 6/7 games, and 3 wins. Shanghai might bring the heat on Wednesday the 29th, even as they play on Shanghai’s turf.
Their head-to-head matches present different perspectives though. Shanghai Port, or SIPG, had wins and draws during 2020 and 2021, against their counterparts. Out of 100 games since 2018, Port won 6 matches. 4 games ended in a draw, and only 1 was a win for Shenhua, on the 8th of this month. Thus, who’s to say how the game on Wednesday will pan out, given the Shenhua team’s current form?
