Their foes for Saturday, Chongqing Lifan, have been enjoying positive results in their last home and away games. Their most recent trip on the road was to the home of 7th placed Wuhan Zall, where they managed to pull off a win with the scores reading 3-2 at the last blast of the whistle.
Despite trailing by a goal, two minutes after the restart in that game, the squad stage a comeback through Alan Kardec netting a brace and Fernandinho finding the back of the net late in stoppage time.
The visitors managed ten attempts at goal, two lesser than their opponents, but were far more clinical in the attacking third.
The home side are now ninth in the league with eighteen points, while the away side are four places above them, on fifth, with twenty-four points. The three points from this weekend will certainly be crucial for both of them to stay aloft in the table.
