Performing significantly better than Guangzhou City, all signs point to Wuhan Three Towns' victory once more when they travel to Guangzhou for their 11th matchday of the Chinese Super League.
Throwing themselves too deep into hot water is 17th placed Guangzhou City, who have gone 8 games without a win so far, putting them in the relegation zone.
Due to their inconsistent performance, they have only three points to their name after a 3-0 victory over Dalian Pro two months ago. They have lost every game they have played in the Super League.
They have presented a completely different side this season after finishing fourth last year to qualify for the AFC Champions League. They have definitely seen signs of change in their form recently, and it is currently doubtful whether they will beat Wuhan Three Towns.
Considering that it's possible that they could be demoted to the second tier, it is unquestionably necessary to look into how they changed from a reliable team last season to an inconsistent team this season and, hopefully, pinpoint the errors in their performance.
Wuhan Three Towns
Given their impressive performance in the super league thus far and the way they currently appear, the moniker "new sheriffs in town" may be a fitting one for them given their apparent lack of hesitation in establishing their dominance.
Things diverted to their advantage as they defeated Shanghai Port 1-0 to increase their lead by three points and put them four points ahead of Shandong Luneng, who are vying for second place.
After defeating Shanghai Port, they were able to extend their unbeaten streak to ten games. Only the minor setback of being held to a 1-1 draw by Shanghai Shenhua marred their otherwise stellar record.
- In their last ten matches played, Guangzhou City have conceded 24 goals in the process, with each and every match at least conceding a goal.
- Wuhan Three Towns have managed to win all of their three away matches and have lost none of their last five away.
- Guangzhou City has lost ten consecutive games.
This will be the first time both sides face off against each other.
