Shenzhen vs Guangzhou City Prediction
Shenzhen are favorites in this game and Guangzhou City’s erratic form in recent weeks does not suggest that they have the wherewithal to offer much of a challenge.
The two sides are high-pressing, expansive teams, so plenty of goalmouth action can be expected. However, the hosts have been more emphatic this term and will be keen to pick up another victory to keep their title ambitions going.
We are predicting a win for Shenzhen in an exciting game.
Prediction: Shenzhen 3-1 Guanzghou City
