Shanghai SIPG vs Yokohama F. Marinos – AFC Champions League Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

Group H Match Day 3 encounter, with Shanghai SIPG taking on Yokohama F. Marinos on Wednesday the 25th of November, 2020, at Al Janoub Stadium, in Qatar.

Shanghai SIPG seem to be loving their time in Qatar… Something under a week ago they played their first game there, beat Sydney 1-2 (coming from behind), earning their first points in the group. Then, on Sunday, they won again, a second 1-2 in a row, this time over Jeonbuk Motors. On six points from two games, they are strong favourites to finish in the top two. Their current form reads; WWDLL. Coach Vítor Pereira left several key men on the bench on Sunday, including Li Shenglong, the guy who scored both goals against Sydney, as well as Hulk, Oscar, and Aaron Mooy. All four played in the second half, which started with the score at 1-1. SIPG won 1-2 thanks to a penalty-kick taken by Hulk in the 82nd minute. Pereira explained after the game that he had to rotate, realizing in the training sessions after the game versus Sydney that some players were simply too tired to be included in the starting lineup and play more than 45 minutes.

Shanghai SIPG are on six points from two games, thanks to two victories in Qatar these last days. Yokohama are already on six points as well, even though this is their first game on Qatari soil. They beat Jeonbuk Motors 1-2 in Korea and Sydney 4-0, at home, back in February. Still, things could be much better for them at the moment. Their current form reads; LWLLL. Four defeats in their last five games in Japan’s championship have pushed them down 7th on the table, knowing that by the time their trip in Qatar is over, they will be even lower than that, as practically all other teams in Japan’s league have several games in hand, compared to them. This has definitely been a bad season for them, and the games in Qatar present them with a good opportunity to leave some positive last impressions. Coach Ange Postecoglou led Yokohama F. Marinos to the championship title last season, but the team won’t be in the AFC Champions League in 2021, a failure that… spoiled the mood ahead of the trip to Qatar. It remains to be seen if they can find it in them to return to winning ways, and, why not, go all the way, reach the final against Persepolis.

This is the first game ever between these two.

SIPG have already played twice in Qatar, they are better used to the… environment, but on the other hand, they should look more tired than freshly-arrived Yokohama F. Marinos.

A 1-1 draw is predicted at full-time.

Date: Wednesday, 25th of October, 2020.

Venue: Al Janoub Stadium

Kick-off time: 14:00 (GMT+2).
