Shenzhen: Relegation candidates (Recent Form: DLLLDD)
Shenzhen are on 15th place in Chinese Super League with 15 points (3 wins, 6 draws, 12 losses; goal difference 16:33). They are currently in the drop zone, being 2 points shy of 14th Tianjin Tianhai (safe spot), with 1 game in hand so it appears that it remains possible to avoid relegation. However, the team is in bad shape – 0 wins, 2 draws, 3 losses in last 5 league matches. In total, they remain winless since early May so there’s a need to imminent improvement. Otherwise, it won’t be possible to avoid relegation. Shenzhen take on Guangzhou R&F on Wednesday in the next league fixture. Shenzhen have collected 12 points in 10 home games to date (3 wins, 3 draws, 4 defeats; goal difference 10:12).
Guangzhou R&F: Average side (Recent Form: DDLLLW)
Guangzhou R&F sit on 11th position in the standings with 26 points (7 wins, 5 draws, 10 defeats; goal difference 44:54). They are now 11 points ahead of 15th Shenzhen (drop zone), whereas Guangzhou R&F are already 24 points short of the third-placed Shanghai SIPG (AFC Champions League). Therefore, they appear to be an average mid-table side. Their recent form is rather poor – 1 win, 2 draws, 2 defeats in last 5 games in CSL, being winless in last 4. Now it’s time for an away encounter. Guangzhou R&F have collected 4 points in 10 matches on the road (1 win, 1 draw, 8 losses; goal difference 16:30).
THE BETTING VERDICT:
To sum up, it seems that this might be a low-scoring clash. Both teams disappoint lately, besides it’s worth noting that Shenzhen have actually the least efficient attack of all sides in the league so perhaps there won’t be much action in this outing.
