Coming off of a disappointing 2-1 loss to Shenzhen, Cangzhou haven't really been at their best in recent matches and this has seen them occupy 14th position in the league standings. And sitting idle as time passes is putting strains on them, with fans demanding better results; pressure has become second nature to them as they devise countless solutions to end their winless streak.Get Your Welcome Bonus!
The hosts' last two matches have been disappointing, leaving them with little to no hope as they host Cangzhou on Tuesday.They'll be looking forward to a much improved result this time around to end a two match winless streak.
Their recent match against Chengdu Rongcheng came as a surprise as they failed to register a win with the odds totally in their favour, with possession being the most important aspect they flourished in, but in the end, were met with a 2-1 loss on the road.
On the verge of getting something out of Cangzhou, who seem to be clearly in a more complicated position than they are in at the moment, this could be a close contested affair. That's if they can keep up with the intensity.
Their form hasn't been a problem apart from their 2 back to back losses against Beijing Guoan and Chengdu Rongcheng and they have only bagged 3 wins in their last 6 matches and 1 draw, with 2 of those games being defeats.
Cangzhou Mighty Lions
With improvements in talk, Cangzhou will certainly be desperate to get a win as they have only registered 1 victory in their last 9 matches dating back to June against Beijing Guoan and have since been collecting draws.
In dire need of being rescued until things take a turn for the worst, the hosts are currently in 14th place on 7 points after picking up a win and 4 draws and have been inconsistent throughout their matches.
They'll have to push their weight to extreme lengths if they clearly want to be out of the relegation zone as it's not a place they want to wind up in.
Expert Betting Tips
Giving them the benefit of doubt sees me dive straight into the Asian Handicap in favour of Cangzhou in the first half as I picture them heating up the game with a solid defence, making things difficult for the hosts to find the net, which should give them a slight edge in holding the upper hand.
As unpredictable as these sides can get, spotting out a winner can be a daunting task, which is why finding shelter in the goals market is a safe idea. So an over 2 goals is what I'll consider for this one. If it ends way over 2 goals, then it'll be a hit for sure.
The odds of Tianjin Teda to win at full-time are not convincing to me at the moment. Why not take a risk and go for the hosts not to score a goal in the first half? There is quite a bit of value in there too.
