JORDAN is going to try his luck in the AFC Champions League this morning where he feels there could be some goals.
He says: “The Chinese are heavily favoured and probably rightly so, but I think the away side could notch a couple goals for themselves.
“Both sides possess Brazilian strikers, Cleiton Silva scored 25 goals in 33 appearances in his league for the Thais. Shanghai have one of the most prolific scorers in the league over the last three seasons in Elkeson, who scored 59 goals in 62 starts for Guangzhou Evergrande but transferred on the 20th of January 2016 for 18.5M Euros.
“They also have Ghanaian forward Asamoah Gyan who all punters would have heard of at some stage of their time betting. He only made 10 starts in 2015 after a transfer from Al Ain where he had scored 95 goals in 76 starts over four seasons.
“If both start they should have more than enough firepower to rack up a few goals against a Thai side who concede against the majority of their sides in their league.
“SIPG are priced up heavy favourites and probably for good reason. There was a similar match last week when a fairly strong Indian side went to China and lost 6-0 to Shandong Luneng. Again this is without team news so only follow if you fancy it.”
