Home advantage is relaxed and nice for Guangzhou Evergrande, but Henan Jianye are fully bent and capable to go home as winners. Who wins?

Insights:
  • Guangzhou Evergrande have conceded at least twice as many goals as they have scored.
  • Henan Jianye have scored more than double the goals of Guangzhou Evergrande.

It's time to recharge all electronic entertainment devices for Henan Jianye, who are travelling more than 1400 kilometers to play this game.

It's no vacation for neither Guangzhou Evergrande nor Henan Jianye as both were in action only a few days ago. Expect some tired legs on the pitch and/or possibly some changes to the lineups.
