The Chinese Super League features an important fixture on Monday as Guangzhou Evergrande host a struggling Henan Jianye outfit at the Tianhe Stadium. Guangzhou Evergrande have been in excellent form so far and are the favourites to win this fixture.

Henan Jianye are currently rooted to the bottom of Group A in the Chinese Super League standings and have failed to manage a single victory in their past five games. The away side has endured a dismal year and will need a miracle to take something away from this game.

Guangzhou Evergrande, on the other hand, have been impeccable in the Chinese Super League and solidified their position at the top of the table with a hard-fought 2-1 victory against Shandong Luneng last week. With the likes of Paulinho and Talisca in their ranks, Guangzhou Evergrande should be able to win this game with consummate ease.


Guangzhou Evergrande vs Henan Jianye Head-to-Head

Guangzhou Evergrande have a massive historical advantage against Henan Jianye and have won 14 games out of a total of 18 matches played between the two sides. Henan Jianye has managed only a single victory against Guangzhou Evergrande and will have to be at their best to take anything away from this game.

The two sides met in the Chinese FA Cup earlier this week and Henan Jianye suffered a 2-0 defeat to a second-string Guangzhou Evergrande side. With the home side's superstars returning to the pitch for this fixture, Henan Jianye cannot afford to make a single mistake on Monday.

Guangzhou Evergrande vs Henan Jianye Prediction

Guangzhou Evergrande have been prolific in the Chinese Super League this season and are the undisputed favourites going into this game. Henan Jianye may get on to the scoresheet on Monday but might not be able to repel Guangzhou Evergrande's incredible attacking threat.

In Paulinho, Talisca, Ai Kesen, and Wei Shihao, Fabio Cannavaro has one of the most lethal attacking combinations in China at his disposal and will want his side to score early goals to put this game to bed. Guangzhou Evergrande are on top of the table for a reason and are unlikely to slip up in this game.

Prediction: Guangzhou Evergrande 4-1 Henan Jianye
