Date: Thursday, 20 August 2020
Kick-off at 11:00 UK/ 12:00 CET
Venue: Dalian Sports Center Stadium.
The South China Tigers are the reigning champions of the competition, and they easily have been the best in China for quite some years. In fact, they had recorded a lead of 19 points over Cosmin Olaroiu’s men the last season.
In the process, they had also scored the most number of goals in the competition, and conceded the least as well.
Even now, they have raced to the top of the table with ease, and have once again recorded the best stats in almost all possible categories.
Olaroiu’s men are one of the better teams in the competition as well, but they are no match for the title-holders, and even the previous h2h clashes indicate this fact.
By the looks of things, expect a Guangzhou Evergrande win this Thursday.

Guangzhou Evergrande vs Jiangsu Suning: Prediction
Fabio Cannavaro’s men have won seven of their last eight overall match-ups, and have once against got to the top of the table. They are also the defending champions of the league, and do have a great h2h record against this opponent.
Meanwhile, their opposite number were winless in 13 of their preceding 19 road trips, and they have also lost their latest match-up, which was against Shanghai Shenhua.
Moreover, as mentioned earlier, they have struggled to perform against the title-holders in recent years, and especially on the road. In fact, away from home, they have a single win against this rival in the last 20 years, and they have never once have kept a clean sheet in these games.
For the reasons, expect Guangzhou Evergrande to post the three points on the board this Thursday.
