Dalian: Not impressive (Recent Form: WWDLLW)
Just like last season, when they ended up in the bottom half of the table, this year in almost the same fashion so far Dalian has been underperforming, as the expectations from the club are normally higher, with them being expected to be in the first half of the table and maybe even battle for the top positions, but at least so far we are seeing nothing like that from the club. So far in the campaign they were able to collect twenty points in their opening sixteen league games (5-5-6), being in the bottom half of the table and having a really average performance, which is not good enough for a club with their ambitions. However, we could definitely say that they are on an uphill recently, winning their last two league games in a row, as well as five times in their last eight games in all competitions (5-1-2), including FA Cup victory, which allowed them to qualify for the quarterfinals. So far overall Dalian is with nine overs in their opening sixteen league games, but also right now on a run of a whole five in just their last six league matches, as well as three in a row at home.
Guangzhou R&F: Rollercoster (Recent Form: WWLLDL)
Just like last year and just like more or less the expectations from the club are, Guangzhou R&F is hovering around the middle of the table, getting mixed results, but like i had written numeral times about them, one thing that is consistent is that they are making really entertaining games, full of chances and goals, because of their style of play. The team depends mainly on their home performance to gain points this season (5-2-1), while away from home having already lost six of their opening eight times (1-1-6). Overall Guangzhou R&F is with thirteen overs in their opening sixteen league games and with the amazing average of 4.3 goals per game in these fixtures.
The Betting Verdict:
We should see a high scoring and entertaining game here. Dalian is making a lot of high scoring games as of recently, while Guangzhou R&F is making high scoring games always, so everything else but at least three goals here would be a surprise.
Dalian VS Guangzhou R&F
Pick:over 3.25 goals
