Shanghai Shenhua vs Guangzhou R&F
China – Super League
Date: Wednesday, 19 August 2020
Kick-Off at 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET
Venue: Dalian Sports Center Stadium (Dalian)
The Flower of Shanghai is second in the groups after a handful of matches. They have only two points difference from reaching the top replacing Guangzhou Evergrande. But when compared to the latter the home side has to improve leaps and bounds in all aspects of the game. This Wednesday they are to face another club from Guangzhou who finished a place above them in the table last year.
The visitors finally won a game this season after four disappointing results. The away win over Dalian Pro places them sixth in the table but really far from a top-four finish. They are the lowest-scoring attack in the competition with just two goals scored in five matches.

Especially since they have never lost to this opposition at this ground in any competitive game, they have nothing to worry about. Meanwhile, the visitors have only won against the last team in the table.
