The Chinese Super League campaign continues this week and will see Wuhan Yangtze host Shanghai Shenhua at the Wuhan Sports Centre Stadium on Tuesday.

Wuhan Yangtze began their league campaign strongly, winning their first three games. However, they have fallen off the pace since then and have struggled for results, most recently suffering a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of league leaders Wuhan Three Towns.

The hosts sit mid-table in 10th place with 12 points from nine games. They will be looking to shake off their latest results and get their campaign back on track this week.

Shanghai Shenhua have enjoyed a solid campaign so far. After suffering their first defeat of the season last weekend, the Shanghai outfit returned to winning ways in midweek, beating Hebei 1-0 on home turf.

The visitors sit fourth in the league standings with 20 points from nine games. They are five points behind Wuhan Three Towns at the top of the table and will be looking to reduce that gap on Tuesday.

There have been seven meetings between Wuhan Yangtze and Shanghai Shenhua. The visitors are undefeated in all seven matchups, winning three times and drawing the other four.

The two sides last faced off in a league clash earlier this season, which the Shanghai club won 2-0.
