This could be an interesting match as Shanghai Shenhua have their presumed home advantage while Jiangsu Suning are ahead 5 points in the Super League table.
Both teams should be fairly well rested for this game, as they have had some quiet days to prepare. Hopefully this will translate into lots of action on the pitch.

Jiangsu Suning form and stats
3 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. That’s the product of Jiangsu Suning playing as the away team in the Super League this season.
Jiangsu Suning delivered a 3-3 draw playing at home against Guangzhou R&F (placed 7th) in their previous match; a Super League game. Preceding that game, the 1-1 draw paying a visit to Dalian Professional.
Drawing 3-3 against Guangzhou R&F after 90 minutes last time out was very disappointing after leading the match 3-1. Their manager A. Olăroiu needs to evaluate why the team couldn't defend their result. A crazy, crazy match with lots of goals last time out for Jiangsu, as mentioned above. 6 goals in that one, will this match be as much fun?
The travelling fans enjoy Jiangsu's attacking play in away games, having scored 9 goals in 5 league matches away. As opposed to that, Jiangsu have seen the ball go into their own net 6 times on the road.
