Cangzhou Mighty Lions will welcome Shenzhen to the Yutong International Sports Center on Sunday for a Chinese Super League fixture.

The home side come into this game on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Guangzhou City on Thursday. Tiago De Leonco and Jown Cardona scored in each half to give the visitors all three points.

Shenzhen were on the wrong end of a 4-2 defeat away to Shandong Taishan. Marouane Fellaini starred with a brace for the hosts, while Li Yuanyi and Frank Archeampong got on the scoresheet for the visitors in a six-goal first half.

That defeat left Shenzhen in third place in Group A of the CSL with 21 points garnered from 12 games. The Cangzhou Mighty Lions, meanwhile, are second from bottom on seven points.

The two sides have clashed on 13 occasions in the past and Cangzhou Mighty Lions have a marginally better record. The Hebei outfit have five wins to their name, while four previous matches ended in a share of the spoils. Shenzhen were victorious on four occasions.

Their most recent meeting came in mid-July when two goals in the final 10 minutes gave Shenzhen a 2-1 victory.

The home side have been in free fall in recent weeks, with just one win recorded all season. Shenzhen have lost two consecutive matches and this has derailed their chances of finishing top of the table.
