Football Bet of the Day: Defences to crack in China
The Chinese Red Devils are headed to Tianjin and Tobias Gourlay's expecting defences to sin
"Both teams have scored in 11/15 Tianjin Teda home games since Uli Stielike took charge"
Tianjin Teda v Shanghai East Asia
DC United came from behind to beat Minnesota United 2-1 in the MLS last night. It means we forfeit half of our stake, but we've still got something in the bank for today's trip to China.
In the Chinese Super League, both teams have scored in 11/15 Tianjin Teda home games since Uli Stielike took charge at the back end of last season. This term, the Tigers have both scored and conceded in 8/10 on home turf. Most recently, they entertained top-of-the-table Beijing and lost 2-5. On Friday morning, second-placed Shanghai East Asia come to town. The reverse fixture finished 1-1 and we fancy there will be more goals this time around.
Vitor Pereira's Shanghai might be flying high, but they've conceded at least once in each of their last nine away games. The Red Devils have scored themselves in 8/9. With those kinds of numbers behind it, BTTS is the only option for their next outing at Friday lunchtime.
