Guangzhou Evergrande is set to go toe-to-toe with Shanghai Shenhua in a blockbuster Chinese Super League clash tomorrow, August 30, at the Dalian Pro Soccer Academy Base.

The champions endured a disappointing draw against basement club Dalian Pro last time out. Evergrande will be desperate to bounce back after the same, as it aims to strengthen its place at the top of the table. The team has set the pace with five wins, one draw and a loss.

Consistency is proving hard to come by for Shanghai Shenhua, however, as it is unable to pull together a string of wins. Shenhua is in fourth place, but will regret not coming away with the three points against the likes of Henan Jianye and Guangzhou R&F.

Shanghai Shenhua has lost seven of its last eight matches against Guangzhou Evergrande in all competitions, which is another worrying sign for them.

Shanghai Shenhua vs Guangzhou Evergrande: Match Prediction

Guangzhou Evergrande could prove too good for a side that is still finding its feet in the tournament. Evergrande's in-game management, sharpness in turnover of possession and the sheer quality in its ranks will fire the champions to their sixth win of the season.

Predicted score: Shanghai Shenhua 1-3 Guangzhou Evergrande
