Cangzhou Mighty Lions
It is without a doubt that they did put forth a fighting spirit to avoid walking away empty-handed in their most recent game on the road against Zhejiang Professional in the Super League by doing their due diligence to hold them to a 3-3 draw to share the spoils.
Prior to that, they had a disappointing road loss to Shanghai SIPG in which they were defeated 2-0. Attempts to appeal the result were noted, but it was obvious that their inability to use their creativity with the ball to at least score a consolation goal was to blame.
As they are fighting to stay above the relegation zone, which they are 12 points clear of in 13th position with 27 points, 5 points have been collected in the past five games played, which may not seem fully convincing to be enough as they find themselves level on points with 14th place Shenzhen FC.
Probable Starting XI
S. Puliang (14); Y. Xiaotian (28), W. Peng (35) , Y. Yiming (23), C. Zhongliu (31), P. Shihao (17); M. Fuyu (27), G. Zhukov (40), L. Chuangyi (8), O. Maritu (10); J. Kante (45).
Favorites to win three points at home, they fell short of their goals and had to settle for a point against Guangzhou Evergrande after being caught off guard. The score ended up being 1-1.
In that game, they had 58% of the ball, and 1 of their 17 attempts were on goal, but that wasn't quite enough to give them a win. They'd probably want to tread more carefully and precisely in front of goal to avoid making costly errors that could see them drop down the standings.
The team led by Xie Hui has now gone two games unbeaten, amassed 7 points overall in the previous five games, and kept up a steady form. With 9 points gained from two victories, five defeats, and three draws in their last ten away games, it is clear that progress is the only way to turn around their dismal away record.
Since they are currently in 12th place with 29 points, not much seems to have changed. They still find themselves behind 11th place Changchun Yatai and their attempts to overtake them are hampered by a five point deficit. However, they have increased the distance between them and 13th place Cangzhou Mighty Lions by two points.
Probable Starting XI
W. Yan (30); Y. He (18), L. Longchang (2), J. Huang (14), G. Sun (11); Y. Fei (28), L. Peng (31), S. Zhiwei (33); Y. Shang (23), C. Manzoki (45), L. Lin (7).

Expert Betting Tips
Cangzhou Mighty Lions have gone undefeated in their last two home games, demonstrating tenacity. But not all has been black and white regarding their abysmal home form in which they have only managed to record one victory in their last 11 home games while accumulating 9 points in the process making it a tough road for them to get back to winning ways.
Dalian Pro might be furious with regret after letting go of their golden ticket to win their match against Guangzhou Evergrande after being held to a draw. This would've seen them consolidating their position in the rankings, and they might want to exploit the hosts' defensive weaknesses to keep their hopes alive as they need a surplus of three points to just do so.
Both teams' defensive play has not been particularly convincing, but their offensive play has. This alone is the recipe for a goal extravaganza when these two teams face off, so we are staying away from the full-time market in case things take a sudden turn.Expect both teams to score, with a combined total of over 2.5 goals as a result, as we are inclined to believe that neither team will be able to keep a clean sheet in what will be an open contest.
- Both Teams To Score + Goals - Over 2.5 for 2.20
- Corners - Over 8.5 for 1.76
