Coming off a tough battle against Tianjin Teda in their most recent match, where they fought for the full 90 minutes to rescue a point as the game ended in a 0-0 draw, they did an admirable job of withstanding the intense pressure from their opponent.
However, not everything has been picture perfect for the South China Tigers when playing at home, as they are not exactly bursting with confidence as they have only won two of their previous 13 home games, losing seven and drawing four for a total of 10 points, which realistically puts them in poor form.
Speaking of bad form, Zheng Zhi's team has only managed to pick up three points from five games played, three of which ended in draws. They have also not been particularly convincing offensively, scoring just three goals while giving up six, so improvement is unquestionably required going forward.
They are currently in 16th place, level on points with Wuhan Zall in 14th place and Guangzhou City FC in 15th place, and are one point away from escaping the relegation zone that's if they are to keep fellow neighbors Guangzhou City FC at bay.
Probable Starting XI
S. Liu (1); W. Zhao (3), S. Wu (5), Y. Li (6), C. Quanjiang (4); S. Wang (31), D. Yan (15), H. Junmin (46) Z. Xiuwei (8); A. Asqer (22), Y. Liyu (17).
Guangzhou City FC
The Blue Lions suffered a bit of bad luck in their match against Shanghai SIPG, losing 2-1 at home to drop all three points. Prior, they had a similarly disappointing result on the road against Tianjin Teda, losing 1-0 after failing to score an equalizer.
They have lost their last seven games without earning any points. Their away statistics are also not very promising; they have only won two of their last 15 away games, drawn two, and lost 11. It is obvious from the poor results they have had so far that they have lacked consistency in their away games.
Currently cooped up in 17th place with 15 points, they are only three points away from avoiding the relegation zone, which might become a reality if they manage to eke out a victory over their opponents.
Probable Starting XI
Z. Yuchen (23); C. Feiya (21), F. Yuncheng (17), Z. Jinliang (31), W. Yongjun (37); W. Yongjun (37), P. Wang (15); C. Zhizhao (32), F. Yunlong (6), C. Wu (28); G. Hong (9).
