Chongqin Lifan – Can Chongqin keep solid run at home going?

Chongqin Lifan sit in 6th place in the Chinese Super League but already find themselves 11 points adrift of the top three clubs and 3rd placed Guangzhou Evergrande prior to Friday night’s action in the domestic top flight.

The hosts therefore have plenty of work to do ahead of them as they prepare for the visit of Shandong Luneng at their Chongqing Olympic Sports Center but their results on home turf have seen an improvement so they stand a decent chance of further adding to their points tally in this encounter.

Although Chongqin Lifan have managed to record just 1 win out of their last 7 matches overall in the Super League, which was a 2-0 home win against Beijing Renhe back in mid-May, and have suffered 2 defeats to Guangzhou Evergrande and Jiangsu Suning, they’ve improved on home soil in recent times.

Chongqin Lifan have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 5 matches at home which was the aforementioned loss to 3rd placed Guangzhou Evergrande, but recent wins over Shenzhen, Hebei CFFC and Beijing Renhe should give the hosts a chance here.

Shandong Luneng Prediction – Can Shandong close gap on top three teams?

Shandong Luneng currently occupy 4th place in the Chinese Super League but they also find themselves off the pace of the top three clubs as they’re 7 points adrift of 3rd placed Guangzhou Evergrande prior to their trip to face Chongqin Lifan.

It should also be mentioned that the visitors’ early success this season has mostly been achieved on home turf at their Jinan Olympic Sports Center Stadium as Shandong have won 4 of their 6 wins this season in their own backyard.

This obviously means that Shandong Luneng have managed just 2 wins on the road so far this season out of their 5 away matches this term amidst an overall away record that stands at an unconvincing looking 2-1-2 10/8 which includes wins at Tianjin Tianhai and second from bottom club, Shanghai Shenhua.

However, in between these two wins, Shandong Luneng were held to a 1-1 draw at Shenzhen along with being handed back-to-back defeats at Guangzhou Evergrande and Shanghai SIPG, so they’re by no means guaranteed of all three points on the road here.


Key-Facts – Chongqin Lifan v Shandong Luneng

  • Chongqin Lifan have lost just 1 of their last 5 matches at home
  • Shandong Luneng have won just 3 of their last 10 away matches
  • Shandong Luneng have failed to keep a single clean sheet in their last 10 away


Betting Tips Verdict

Chongqin Lifan have made steady progress at home and are very capable of keeping Shandong Luneng close here. Back the hosts with the handicap.
