On September 6, within the framework of the ninth round of the Chinese Super League at the “Suzhou Sports Center” stadium, a meeting of Group B “Tianjin Teda” – “Chongqing Lifang” will take place. Two outsiders come face to face to find out who is the best among the worst. Neither one nor the other actually claim a place in the four, which means that the clubs will fight in the next stage for survival. Who will be stronger and luckier? Read about it in our forecast.
Tianjin Teda are currently a prime candidate to be relegated from the elite Chinese division at the end of the season. The club did not win a single victory, but this is not surprising when there is a real passing yard in defense. It is all the more remarkable that the team earned the only point in the match against Chongqing Lifang, and then it turned out to escape defeat in stoppage time (2: 2).
Now the team needs to start taking the first steps to get out of the current situation. A series of failures cannot but drive the team into an emotional pit, but a few good matches can change a lot.
Chongqing Lifan is not far from its opponent, being in the penultimate place in the group. The only thing a club can really compete for is for sixth place, but this is a simple formality that can only sweeten the pill. Ahead is the struggle for survival.
“Chongqing” has a slightly better defensive line, unlike “Tianjin Teda”, but there are no fundamental differences. Nevertheless, they still managed to win once, and Shijiazhuang was defeated with a minimal score. This is where the fun ends, except for three more draws. Will there be joy number two?
Tianjin remain the only club in the Super League not to win a single victory;
The hosts also have the worst defense in the championship – 21 conceded goals;
02.08.20 Chongqing Lifang Tianjin Teda 2: 2
01.12.19 Tianjin Teda Chongqing Lifang 20
06/29/19 Chongqing Lifang Tianjin Teda ten
03.11.18 Chongqing Lifang Tianjin Teda eleven
07/21/18 Tianjin Teda Chongqing Lifang 12
07/22/17 Chongqing Lifang Tianjin Teda 2: 1
04/02/17 Tianjin Teda Chongqing Lifang 20
10/30/16 Chongqing Lifang Tianjin Teda 12
It seems that both teams on the field have something to prove. “Tianjin” wants to finally win, the guests, in turn, want to cheer themselves up, interrupting the unsuccessful streak. So the motivation to score goals will be both for some and for others.
Our forecast – both will score – yes, with odds of 1.67 from Bet City.
