Shandong vs Kawasaki Predictions

An entertaining first-leg should be on the cards at the Jinan Olympic Sports Center Stadium.

I expect goals at both ends, so BTTS and over 2.5 goals is my top tip for Tuesday's Asian Champions League tie. 

  • Shandong have seen BTTS and over 3.5 goals in their last 3 home matches.
  • Kawasaki have seen BTTS and over 2.5 goals in 3 of their last 4 matches.

Head to Head

Tuesday's ACL match is the first-ever encounter between Shandong Taishan and Kawasaki Frontale.

Shandong Form

Shandong return to action for their first fixture of 2024 on Tuesday. Last season's Chinese Super League runners-up secured their place in the ACL round of sixteen despite a 3-0 defeat at Yokohama Marinos in their final group fixture. Choi Kang-Hee's side finished the group in second spot with 12 points.

High-scoring matches were a frequent occurrence for Shandong last season. The CSL side have seen an average of 3.1 goals scored in their ten most recent fixtures. 

Shandong Team News

Head coach Kang-Hee has reported no injury issues ahead of Tuesday's round of sixteen contest.

Brazilian attacker Zeca could make his debut after completing a January transfer from Korean side Pohang Steelers.

Kawasaki Form

Kawasaki make the journey to China, also facing their first competitive fixture of 2024. The J1 League side secured their place in the ACL round of sixteen by topping their section with an impressive 16 points collected. 

Another team that saw plenty of high-scoring matches in 2023, 21 goals were scored in Kawasaki's last four ACL group matches. 

On their travels, Frontale have lost only one of their last six ACL fixtures. A whopping 29 goals were netted in those ACL contests.

Kawasaki Team News

Kawasaki head coach Toru Oniki has a handful of likely absentees for Tuesday's ACL contest. Ryota Oshima, Asahi Sasaki, Shintaro Kurumaya, Daiya Tono and Ten Miyagi are all set to remain unavailable for the away side. 

Former Sao Paulo forward Erison could make his first apperance after joining the club in a January transfer window move. 


Goals should be on the cards in a likely competitive contest in China.

I'm confidently backing BTTS and over 2.5 goals scored in Tuesday's ACL matchup in Ji'nan.
