The Chinese Super League returns with yet another exciting fixture this Tuesday as Wuhan Zall host a formidable Shanghai SIPG side at the Dongxihu Sports Centre. Shanghai SIPG are one of the best teams in the country and are the favourites to win this game.
Wuhan Zall has endured a mixed campaign so far and is currently in fourth place in Group B of the Chinese Super League table. The home side suffered a 1-0 defeat against Shijiazhuang Ever Bright over the weekend and will look to return to winning ways in this game.
Shanghai SIPG have been in excellent form this season and are currently at the top of Group B in the Chinese Super League table. The Shanghai outfit edged Qingdao Huanghai to a 2-1 victory last week and will want to consolidate their position at the top of the table with a victory on Tuesday.
Wuhan Zall vs Shanghai SIPG Head-to-Head
Shanghai SIPG have a near-flawless record against Wuhan Zall and have been the dominant force in this fixture. The away side has managed four victories in five games and Wuhan Zall has been unable to pick up a single win against a much stronger Shanghai SIPG squad.
Shanghai SIPG picked up a 2-1 victory against Wuhan Zall in the reverse fixture earlier this year. Goals from Marko Arnautovic and Oscar completed a staggering comeback for the Shanghai team and the enigmatic duo will be major sources of concern for Wuhan Zall going into this game.
