Shenzhen have been more accustomed to losing matches this season than winning, as they sit at the bottom of the standings.
Their recent match against Meizhou Hakka on the road saw them suffer a heartbreaking 5-1 defeat. This defeat comes after a narrow 2-1 defeat at home against Shandong Taishan before the international break.
Overall, they have been in poor form in the league, as they are currently on a seven-match losing streak, during which they conceded 17 goals while accounting for four. This is a side that has lacked motivation in their matches, meaning nothing much can be expected from them in this one.
They currently occupy 16th place with 12 points in the standings within the relegation zone and are six points behind Dalian Pro in 15th place. Their bid for safety, which in their case is a 14th-place finish, is hindered by a seven-point deficit.
Probable Starting XI
M. Wei; S. Hujahmat, J. Zhipeng, Y. Mincheng, Y. Boyu, Z. Dalun; L. Yue, Z. Yuan, R. Huang, X. Yue; Y. Du
Zhejiang Professional FC
Zhejiang Professional, who made their first appearance in twelve years in the AFC Champions League group stages, were met with a disappointing debut as they lost 4-1 on the road against Thai giants Buriram United FC. This has seen them be the bottom dwellers in Group H.
In the league, they left no stone unturned in their bid for a second win on the bounce as they recorded a 1-0 victory against Beijing Guoan FC on the road courtesy of in-form Leonardo's 57th-minute goal.
The Green Giants have been a difficult side to beat in a run that sees them unbeaten in about two months since a 1-0 defeat against Shanghai Shenhua on July 7th. They are unbeaten in ten matches, recording seven wins and three draws. Their confidence will be high as they seek to extend their unbeaten run to eleven matches.
They currently occupy 5th place and 4th place with 42 points in the standings, with third-placed Shanghai Shenhua and fifth-placed Wuhan Three Towns. Their bid for a second-place finish is hindered by a five-point deficit.
Probable Starting XI
B. Zhao; Y. Xin, H. Liu, S. Zhengao, D. Yu; Z. Jiaqi, Q. Jiegei, L. Tixiang, C. Jin; Leonardo, N. Mushekwi

Expert Betting Tips
Shenzhen FC are faced with another tough assignment in their bid to get back to winning ways this time around at home, where they have not been convincing with their performance. They are currently on a five-match losing streak, conceding thirteen goals, and are tipped for another convincing defeat in this one.
Zhejiang Professional FC are the betting favorites, having won six of their last eleven matches in this fixture. However, there's no value in picking them up in the full-time market, though vouching for them to score an individual total of 2.5 goals should be enough to surface against the league's worst defensive side.
- First Half Goals - Over 1.5 for 2.00
- Total 2 - Over 2.5 for 1.65
- CS - 1:4 for 14.75
