Guangzhou City will host Shandong Taishan at the Yuexishuan Stadium on Sunday on the penultimate day of the Chinese Super League regular season.

The home side come into the game on the back of a 2-0 away victory over Cangzhou Mighty Lions. Taigo De Leonco and Jown Cardona got on the scoresheet for Guangzhou.

Shandong Taishan defeated Shenzhen 4-2 in a six-goal thriller. All six goals came in a first half that saw Marouane Fellaini continue his fine run of form with a brace.

This was the third consecutive game in which the Belgian found the back of the net and it helped Taishan maintain their spot at the top of Group A. They need another victory to boost their chances of finishing first in the table.

Guangzhou City sit in fourth spot, with 20 points garnered from 12 matches.
