Reigning Chinese Super League champions Shandong Taishan will square off against last-placed Guangzhou City at the Mission Hills Football Base Stadium on Saturday.

Shandong returned to winning ways in the Chinese Super League with a 2-0 win over Henan Jianye on Tuesday. They had suffered a 2-0 defeat to Hangzhou Greentown before that game.

Guangzhou, meanwhile, have struggled to get going this term, losing all seven league fixtures. Following Hebei's 2-1 win against Wuhan Zall, on Thursday, Guangzhou remain the only team without a single point in the league this season.
