On September 25, within the framework of the 13th round of the Chinese Super League, a meeting of Group B Shanghai SIPG – Beijing Guoan will take place. Today, nominee owners can officially register the first place in the group. To do this, they need to at least play a draw. Their rival, in turn, will only be satisfied with the victory. Who will achieve the desired result for themselves? Read about it in our forecast.
“Shanghai SIPG” by and large today can even lose without a twinge of conscience, because in the last round the team has a meeting against “Chongqing Lifan”. However, everything is not so simple here, because the opponent by that time may be over-motivated. But that’s a completely different story.
As for the latest results, in September the Eagles managed to win four out of five matches, beating alternately Qingdao Huanghai, Wuhan (both – 2: 1), Chongqing Lifang (3: 2) and Shijiazhuang ( 1: 0). The team was able to respond correctly to the defeat by Hebei (0: 2), without spending a huge amount of energy to achieve the result.
For Beijing Guoan, today’s game is akin to a test before the start of the playoffs, which is very soon. Of course, this team will be one of the contenders for the victory, but still not the most important when there are “Shanghai” and “Guangzhou Evergrande”.
However, there is still a grain of optimism, because in the previous twelve rounds the team suffered only one defeat, and it was from its current counterpart (1: 2). Seven wins and four draws are pretty decent numbers. After that failure, “Beijing” is still invincible – seven matches without defeat (four wins and three draws). Will the episode last?
Shanghai won six matches in a row against Beijing;
Rated guests are the best team in the league in terms of the number of goals scored (32).

Both teams today will strive to show themselves as much as possible in attack. The nominee guests are well aware that it is unlikely that they will be able to bypass Shanghai, so they will not be pressured by the result either. Therefore, we expect to see goals from both sides in this game.
Our forecast is that both will score and the total is less than (4.5) goals with the odds of 2.10 from the bookmaker 1xBet.
