Shijiazhuang Ever Bright are welcoming Dalian Professional for another important game after their 2-1 result against Dalian Professional.

Both teams have had enough rest since their last competitive action. Let's hope for an energetic game!

Dalian Professional form and stats

There's been little loot from Dalian Professional's travels as they have only collected 7 points from 7 away games in the Super League. Dalian Professional, who have the fewest clean sheets (2) in Super League, only have 2 wins to counter their 4 defeats and 1 draw. With the Dalian Professional losing streak of four defeats in a row, regardless of arena, optimism is low and sinking. Dalian Professional has lost their two previous away games and are eager to kill a negative trend in its infancy.

Home advantage was not enough for Professional in their previous game, as they lost their Super League-match, hosting Shijiazhuang Ever Bright, 1-2. Prior to that match, the Professional manager R. Benítez Maudes faced defeat when travelling to Guangzhou Evergrande and losing 0-1.

Dalian Professional find the net regularly in their away games. 10 goals from 7 away fixtures in the league. 9 goals have been conceded by Dalian Professional in these games.
