Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Shenzhen FC v Guangzhou Evergrande match are shown here (plus the best game odds).
Shenzhen FC will be looking to improve on their last outing here after a 1-0 FA Cup defeat last time out to Zibo Cuju.
A common theme in recent Shenzhen FC games is the high number of scores with a nil in them.
Taking their prior 6 matches leading up to this one, in as many as 5 of them a bet on both teams scoring would've been a loser. That sort of pattern won’t necessarily be continued into this match, of course.
Guangzhou Evergrande head into the encounter following on from a 2-4 FA Cup win over Sichuan Jiuniu in their last outing.
A spate of pretty fragile efforts from the Guangzhou Evergrande defence has resulted in a total of 18 goals being leaked by them in only their past six outings. They could really do with paying more attention to this unwelcome component of their game.
