Dalian Yifang F.C.: Average side (Recent Form: WWDLLW)
Dalian Yifang are on 10th place in Chinese Super League with 20 points (5 wins, 5 draws, 6 losses; goal difference 22:23). They have currently 9 points of advantage over 15th Beijing Renhe (relegation zone), whereas the distance to 3rd Shanghai SIPG (AFC Champions League) is already 20 points at the moment. Therefore, Dalian Yifang should mainly focus on avoiding troubles. The team is in average shape – 2 wins, 1 draw, 2 losses in last 5 league matches, but they’ve won the last 2 outings. Dalian Yifang take on Guangzhou R&F on Friday in the next league fixture. Dalian Yifang have collected 8 points in 8 home games to date (2 wins, 2 draws, 4 defeats; goal difference 10:11).
Guangzhou R&F: Back-to-back victories (Recent Form: WWLLDL)
Guangzhou R&F sit on 9th position in the standings with 21 points (6 wins, 3 draws, 7 defeats; goal difference 33:36). They are now 10 points ahead of the drop zone, whereas Guangzhou R&F are 19 points short of the third-placed Shanghai SIPG (AFC Champions League). So, similarly to Guangzhou R&F, it appears that first of all Guangzhou R&F should control the gap over the relegation zone. Their recent form is average – 2 wins, 1 draw, 2 defeats in last 5 games in CSL. Now it’s time for an away encounter. Guangzhou R&F have collected 4 points in 8 matches on the road (1 win, 1 draw, 6 losses; goal difference 11:22).
THE BETTING VERDICT:
To sum up, it seems that this might be an interesting clash with a couple of goals. Both Dalian Yifang F.C. and Guangzhou R&F won their last 2 games and will try to keep their winning run going so perhaps it may be an open match.
