Tobias Gourlay's headed east for what he hopes will be an exciting game in the Chinese Super League
"Seven of these two's last 10 head-to-heads have delivered Over 2.5 Goals"
Tianjin Teda v Shandong Luneng
The Birds fail to strike in Trondheim last night. Lillestrom lost 3-0 at Rosenborg and took our bet down with them.
We're looking to rise again in the East. Friday lunchtime (UK time) brings an intriguing game in the Chinese Super League. Uli Stieleke's Tianjin Teda host Li Xiaopeng's Shandong Luneng and we fancy them to serve up a few goals.
Seven of their last 10 head-to-heads have delivered Over 2.5 Goals, with second-placed Shandong striking nine times across their last three visits to Tianjin. The hosts have also conceded in all four of their home games so far this season.
However, the Tigers, who are currently seventh in the 16-team league, are W7-D1-L1 playing at home under Stieleke. They've scored themselves in all nine games, with six going Over 2.5 Goals and that's our bet of today (well, tomorrow).
