On September 16, as part of the eleventh round of the Chinese Super League, a meeting of Group B “Tianjin Teda” – “Shijiazhuang” will take place. The outsider, who continues to break through the bottom, will play against the favorite, who went out of his way for the start of the second round. Will the nominal guests stumble over their opponents or take another step towards the playoffs? Read about it in our forecast.
“Tianjin Teda” surpassed absolutely all competitors. But she surpassed with a minus sign. In ten rounds, the club scored only one point, concedes on a regular basis, and scores only on major holidays. According to almost all statistical calculations, this is the worst team in the Super League.
The situation has not changed since the start of the season, and has not changed for almost two months. So it is very likely that the team will start next season not in the elite division, but with a tournament of a lower rank.
Shijiazhuang is a complete antagonist in this regard. Although the beginning of the season was not the most pleasant: it seems that there are not so many defeats, but victories were counted on one finger of one hand. Now the team has managed to produce a brilliant segment of three victories in a row, the unbeaten streak is four games at all. And this despite the fact that the team before that unexpectedly suffered defeat from Chongqing Lifang (0: 1).
Another advantage is the fact that we managed to collect a full set of points in the confrontation with direct competitors, and even left not empty-handed in the match with Beijing Guoan (2: 2).
In the first round, the nominal guests were stronger – 3: 0;
Tianjin Teda is the only league club that has not won a single victory.

“Shijiazhuang” in an amicable way is obliged to take about three points for itself without any problems and calmly move on. Moreover, the opponent is so disassembled that one should try not to beat him. And what was the point then to strain so hard to hold a meeting against an outsider so mediocre?
Our prediction is the victory of Shijiazhuang with a coefficient of 2.10 from BC Leon.
