Guangzhou - Shanghai SIPG
Guangzhou are on the 10th place with 25 points. They are in poor form and have no win on the last three matches in the league. Guangzhou lost 5:0 to Guangzhou Evergrande and lost 5:3 to Shanghai Shenhua. If something could be rated as positive, that s the fact they played a 2:2 draw with Jiangsu Suning in the last round. Defender Ding Haifeng will miss the match due to suspension, while Zahawi and Dembele are doubtful due to injuries.
Shanghai SIPG are on the third place with 49 points. They are in series of three draws in the league - 2:2 with Chongqing Lifan, 1:1 with Wuhan Zall and 0:0 with Tianjin Tianhai. Nevertheless, the overall form is solid, Shanghai SIPG are on a eight-match streak without a single defeat. For this match the guests are handicapped as Hulk is out due to injury, while Wang Shenchao is suspended. Finally, Yang Shiyuan is rated as doubtful.
I don t see a clear favorites here. Shanghai SIPG are better, however Guangzhou have the home advantage. I expect the points to be shared.
