Full predictions, pre-match stats and user poll for Wuhan Zall v Shenzhen FC are shown on this page - plus the latest match odds.
Wuhan Zall will be hoping to bounce back here after a 1-2 Super League defeat in their last game at the hands of Shandong Luneng.
In that match, Wuhan Zall managed 38% possession and 5 shots at goal with 3 on target. The scorer for Wuhan Zall was Asmir Kajević (70'). At the other end, Shandong Taishan had 14 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target.
It has been seldom in recent games where Wuhan Zall have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Wuhan Zall have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 12 goals during that time. That sort of pattern won’t necessarily follow through into this next game, however.
Following on from being beaten in their last game against Dalian Professional in Super League action, Shenzhen FC and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
In that match, Shenzhen FC had 52% possession and 11 shots at goal with 4 of them on target. Dalian Professional got 16 attempts on goal with 10 of them on target. Streli Mamba (73') was the scorer for Dalian Professional.
A succession of pretty weak efforts from the Shenzhen FC defensive players has resulted in a sum of 19 goals being leaked by them in only their previous 6 fixtures. They certainly could do with sorting out this unimpressive component of their play.
Head to head
The last league match featuring these sides was Super League match day 27 on 26/10/2019 when the final score was Shenzhen FC 4-4 Wuhan Zall.
Team News: Wuhan Zall
The Wuhan Zall boss Li Jinyu will be grateful to have no fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this game with a completely injury-free squad to choose from.
In all likelihood, Han Army may well use a 4-2-3-1 system for this one featuring Zhenqiang Zhang, Tian Ming, Xuan Han, Peng Li, Dong Xu, Aoshuang Nie, Hang Li, Rentian Hu, Jinghang Hu, Yun Liu and Felicio Brown Forbes.
Team News: Shenzhen FC
Thanks to a largely healthy group of players, there’s just the sole fitness worry for the Shenzhen FC boss Jang-Soo Lee to be concerned with. Romain Alessandrini (Fractured Rib) won’t be in action.
It’s our belief that Shenzhen FC could decide to make use of a 4-4-2 formation, giving starts to Chunyu Dong, Yeljan Shinar, Shuai Pei, Chae-Min Lim, Haolun Mi, Yuan Zhang, Mincheng Yuan, Yuanyi Li, Zhipeng Jiang, Dalun Zheng and Frank Acheampong.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Shenzhen FC will likely create enough chances to find the back of the net against this Wuhan Zall lineup, although it possibly won’t be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We think that it’s going to be a narrow 2-1 advantage for Wuhan Zall at full-time. It really should be an interesting one.
