Shenzhen vs Tianjin Teda Prediction
A failure to pick up a victory in this fixture would put Shenzhen in serious danger of being relegated to the Chinese League One.
They will be keen to avoid this situation but will have their work cut out against a Teda side that currently hold all the cards in this second leg fixture.
The visitors have an impressive record against Shenzhen and, given their two-goal advantage and history, it is difficult to see the home side getting anything from this fixture.
Shenzhen's need for a victory will see them go all out, leaving their defence susceptible and both sides would likely cancel each other out in a high-scoring thriller.
