Insights:
  • Kitchee is in the best form (4-2-0)
  • Tai Chung have the fewest scored goals (4) in Premier League

Kitchee and Tai Chung should both be in good shape for this meeting, as there's been enough days for both of them to train and rest since their last matches.

One slightly interesting match fact is that this game is played on grass and that the visiting Tai Chung have a different surface at their stadium (artifical turf). The impact of this is hard to measure exactly, but the visitors stats on grass is 1-3-1 (win-draw-loss) from five matches.

These teams are located so close to each other that their supporters eat in the same restaurants, hang out at the same night clubs and give birth at the same hospitals. This means added importance to the game and a vibrant atmosphere.
