Guangzhou City F.C.
The Super League performance of The Blue Lions thus far has shown a team that is determined to move out of the relegation zone, but sadly, their most recent away game against Shanghai SIPG was merely an inescapable tragedy in which they fell to a 2-0 defeat and lost crucial points.
Prior to that, they earned a crucial three points at home by outwitting Guangzhou Evergrande to a 1-0 victory, despite the fact that they only covered 35% of the field for the duration of the game. They are currently placed in 17th position with 9 points.
With their lack of attacking intent and defensive breakdowns being the issues at hand, their form has deteriorated to the worst in the Super League as they have only managed to slip in four goals in their last five matches while letting up five goals and have only taken in six points.
Despite their erratic form, there has been a noticeable change in their play as they are becoming more clinical than previously, which should count as some improvement as they aim to regain their footing in the Super League.
Coming off a narrow 1-0 loss to Changchun Yatai on the road in their most recent match, they showed some fighting spirit to gain an equalizer, but their efforts were ultimately futile.
In their last five matches, they have only gathered three points from one win while suffering four losses, making this season nothing short of terrible for them.
More of a ticking time bomb, a setback this time will put them in a perilous position, as they sit in 13th place with 19 points and might find themselves falling down the table.

Expert Betting Tips
The fact that their opponent is in the same boat as them with the current problem being their lack of finesse in finishing will please the visitors as they haven't been able to create as many opportunities in their recent games to be a threat when it comes to attacking (6 goals conceded and 9 goals fired).
The visitors have shown encouraging signs of becoming a more potent attacking team thus far, though they have only lacked the finesse of finishing in the final third, as evidenced by their five goals scored in the previous five games, despite the fact that we did state that it will take time to finally see changes from the new manager of Shenzhen F.C. take effect.
Taking in mind that both sides' defenses have been a bit untrustworthy in recent matches, backed with the fact that Guangzhou City F.C. takes second place in terms of goals surrendered, totalling up to 39, while Shenzhen F.C. takes third place with a total of 38 goals surrendered in their last 18 matches of the super league, it's definitely difficult to see either side keeping a clean sheet.
