The Chinese Super League campaign continues this week and will see Tianjin JMT host Cangzhou Mighty Lions at the Tianjin Olympic Sports Centre on Tuesday.
Tianjin JMT have had mixed results in the league this season. They were beaten 2-1 by Chengdu Rongcheng in their last game and will be gutted to have come away with nothing after dominating most of the game.
The hosts sit 12th in the league table with 11 points from nine games and will be looking to return to winning ways when they play later this week.
Cangzhou Mighty Lions have gone on a poor run of form after their opening day victory over Beijing Guoan. They were beaten 2-1 by Shenzhen in their last game, squandering the early lead handed to them by Fuyu Ma.
The visitors sit 15th in the Super League standings with just seven points picked up so far. They are just four points above the drop zone and will be looking to widen that gap on Tuesday.

Tianjin JMT vs Cangzhou Mighty Lions Prediction
Tianjin JMT are on a run of back-to-back defeats after winning their three games prior. However, they have won just one home game this season and could struggle here.
The Cangzhou Mighty Lions are winless in their last eight games on the bounce. They are in far worse form than their opponents and could lose here as well.
