SHG vs JNG Dream11 Team: Formidable Shangai SIPG look to continue mounting their bid for the title when they take on waning Jiangsu Suning today
Ever since the onset of the Chinese Super League if there is one side which has pulled out all stops to add to the immense pool of worldclass performers in their outfit its being Shangai SIPG. Lined up with a slew of players extradonaire from the footballing fraternity, the side has seen its determination to dole out the most formidable outfit result in rich rewards for them.
Adding Marko Arnautovic to their side after a transfer saga saw West Ham finally decide to offload the player after the chants from supporters grew ever vociferous to ask for his ouster, Shangai SIPG added to their already glowing strength. It’s their list of specialists which has seen them rise all the way to third place in the league standings, just the 5 points behind Beijing Guoan who sit at the top for now.
Taking on Jiangsu Suning today, Shangai will be aware that their chances of coming out with the three points are aplenty. What began as the dream campaign for Suning, winning matches at will has quickly gone wayward with the side having recorded the sole win in their previous 5 matches to slip down all the way to seventh position in the table.
With just the 13 goals let in across the 16 matches, the defence line has complimented the exuberant strike force of Shanghai SIPG to perfection. They’ve been one of the most complete and well rounded sides across the tournament, significantly staying in the fight for the title without any slip ups.
Up against a side who have seriously failed to address the maligned problems that have only gone onto increase in magnitude, Shanghai should win this win with ease. They’ve lost just two matches across their stay in the league and we don’t see them adding to this tally today either.
Goal-Keeper for SHG vs JNG Dream11
They’ve let in goals over the course of their last five matches, keeping just two cleansheets in those encounters and with this being played at Suning’s home, another cleansheet wipe out is probable for Shanghai. Based on that we have opted for Junling Yan to come in from Shanghai solely based on the save points he is bound to rope into our side.
Defenders for SHG vs JNG Dream11
The backline is lined up with a duo of players from Shanghai. While seeing a cleansheet today is an unlikely proposition, if any side are going to have the fortitude of keeping one, it’s bound to be Shanghai. Shenchao Wang and Wei Zhang all come in from the side who have imbedded an exemplary astuteness in the defensive segment, not allowing opposition strikers to traverse past them.
Elsewhere from Suning its Ang Li who comes into our side. The three goals he’s scored make him undeniable selection for us with the player’s penchant for marauding up the field bound to see him amongst the goals.
Midfielders for SHG vs JNG Dream11
While Suning have failed to keep out goals, their own goal scoring ability can’t be doubted. Up in the echelons of attacking forces, the side managed to scour their way to a colossal 31 goals to ensure that the problems at the back have been compensated for.
And what has impressed more is not just their ability to score goals but the fact that they have players stepping up in all departments to come in and contribute to the scoring part. A major part of their success up the field has been Xie Pengfie, amassing 5 goals and he comes in straightaway from the side. We have opted for Tian Yinong to partner him for this encounter.
From Shanghai it’s the two man partnership of Odil Akhmedov and Wenjung Lu which makes a place for itself in our Dream 11 side.
Strikers for SHG vs JNG Dream11
The highest scorer amongst both the outfits, Alex Teixeria has been unstoppable ever since his advent into Suning’s side. His 10 goals and 2 goals have played a pivotal role in his side finding themselves in the top 5 and his tutelage has benefitted Eder Martins who has managed to score 7 himself to form a deadly combination.
Meanwhile from Shanghai its Hulk who wraps up our Dream 11 side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Alex has been opted for as the captain for this clash while we have Wenjung becoming our vice-captain.
