Guangzhou Evergrande continue thrashing their opponents in both domestic competitions. Luis Felipe Scolari’s men clinched their place in the semifinals this week, knocking out Beijing Guoan in the season leg of the quarterfinals, 2-1 (the first leg also ended with 2-1 win of the Evergrande). Guangzhou have gained 45 points in 19 matches this season with impressive 39-11 goal difference. Of course, such impressive record put the team on the first place, seven points ahead of the season team in the table Jiangsu Suning. The Evergrande played nine matches on the road this season, taking 19 points with 19-7 aggregate goal difference.
Obviously, the Evergrande have advantage in the head-to-heads between the teams. Considering that the hosts show nice results at home and conceding small number of goals while the visitors show great performance in defense in any match, we can expect to see a low-scoring result in upcoming match. On top of that, the opponents couldn’t combine over 3 goals since 2011.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 goals.
