An important duel in the bottom section of the Super League, with both Guangzhou R&F and Dalian Professional experiencing more worry than joy. This match is a classic "six-pointer" with the home team placed 7th and the visitors in 6th place.
There should be plenty of energy on the pitch in this game, as both sides have had time to recuperate from their last game. Let's hope both teams are ready to give it all.
Dalian Professional have a very long trip to this away game, as there's more than 2200 kilometers in distance to cover. This could prove a challenge, at least for the supporters.
