Cangzhou Mighty Lions vs Guangzhou FC Prediction
Cangzhou are still winless after three rounds of league fixtures. They have scored thrice and conceded four goals in that period. Guangzhou also haven't been highly prolific in their three outings and have scored four goals and conceded three goals.
We do not expect this game to be a high-scoring one, but we expect the South China Tigers to edge out ahead of the Mighty Lions, based on their historic record against them and their current form.
Prediction: Cangzhou Mighty Lions 0-1 Guangzhou FC.
