The Chinese Super League is back in action with an exciting fixture this weekend as two of the best teams in Group A of the league lock horns at the Tianhe Stadium. Guangzhou Evergrande and Shandong Luneng have put in some excellent performances so far this season and will be gunning for a victory on Sunday.

Guangzhou Evergrande are currently at the top of the Chinese Super League table and have used their extraordinary squad depth to build an impressive unbeaten streak. The away side picked up a 2-0 victory against Shenzhen FC earlier this week and is the favourite to win this game.

Shandong Luneng are perfectly capable of causing an upset against Guangzhou Evergrande but are not in the best shape at the moment. The third-placed side has picked up only one point in its last three games and is in desperate need of a victory.


Shandong Luneng vs Guangzhou Evergrande Head-to-Head

Guangzhou Evergrande have a massive historical advantage in this fixture and have won 12 games out of a total of 23 matches played between the two sides. Shandong Luneng have won only two games and will want to improve their record against Guangzhou Evergrande.

Shandong Luneng won the previous game played between these two sides and can take heart from the fact that they did not concede a goal to Guangzhou Evergrande's star-studded attack. Guo Tianye scored the only goal of the game on the day and will hope to replicate his heroics this weekend.
