Looking to end their 11-game winless run, Wuhan FC visit the Suzhou Olympic Sports Center Stadium to face Beijing Guoan on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the hosts will aim to make it two wins from two games after claiming a 1-0 win over Dalian Pro.
Beijing Guoan returned to winning ways in the Chinese Super League as they claimed a narrow 1-0 victory away to Dalian Pro on Saturday.
After utterly dominating proceedings, the former Villarreal man Cédric Bakambu converted his 75th-minute penalty to hand Beijing Guoan the win.
Prior to that, Slaven Bilić’s men failed to pick up a win in their last three games, securing two draws and losing once.
With 14 points from nine outings, Beijing Guoan are currently eighth in the Chinese Super League table, level on points with Guangzhou City.
Meanwhile, Wuhan FC failed to end their winless run last time out as they played out a 2-2 draw with Changchun Yatai.
In an action-packed contest, Jean Evrard Kouassi and Anderson Lopes were on target for Wuhan to force a share of the spoils.
Li Xiaopeng’s men have not picked up a win in their last 11 games across all competitions, claiming six draws and losing on five occasions.
This horrid run has seen Wuhan FC drop to 14th place in the table, two points above rock-bottom Dalian Pro.
