Guangzhou Evergrande take on Henan Jianye in Monday’s big 2020 Super League clash.
Full predictions, pre-match stats and user poll for Guangzhou Evergrande v Henan Jianye are shown on this page (including the best match odds).
Guangzhou Evergrande, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following a 1-2 2020 Super League success against Shandong Luneng.
Southern China Tigers have not been the best at stopping their opponents recently, although they have also done enough to hit the back of the net themselves. Looking at their last 6 games, Southern China Tigers have been punished defensively in 5 of them as well as scoring in 6 of those games.
Following on from tasting defeat last time out to Shenzhen FC in 2020 Super League action, Henan Jianye will be hoping to turn things around here.
The numbers tell their own story, and Henan Jianye have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing opposing sides hit 17 goals in total. In defence, Henan Jianye certainly have room for improvement. That pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward here, however.
Head to head
An inspection of their past head to head results stretching back to 13/08/2017 shows that these encounters have not been good ones for Henan Jianye. They have not been able to come away with any victories whatsoever while Guangzhou Evergrande have remained in the ascendancy, winning in 83% of those matches.
Loads of goals were seen in those games, too - 24 in total which averages out at 4 goals per meeting.

Team News: Henan Jianye
Thanks to a fully healthy group ready to go, Henan Jianye manager Yang Ji doesn’t have any fitness worries to speak of ahead of this game.
Our feeling is that Henan Jianye must be fancied to score against this Guangzhou Evergrande side, however it possibly won’t quite be as many as they’ll concede.
We reckon that it will be a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 win for Guangzhou Evergrande when the full-time whistle blows. Should be a good one.
