Jiangsu Sainty will be aiming for their first league win in three games when they host Beijing Renhe FC in the Chinese Super League regular season at Nanjing Olympic Sports Center.
With four wins from the first seven games, Jiansgu made a good start to the new season. But the form soon faded as only 1 win has come in the last five league games.
Sainty are now outside top-four but could move within one point of Shandong Luneng in 4th.
Beijing Renhe carry some sort of form into their next match, having won two consecutive league games for the first time this season.
Indeed, with just three wins all season, and two of those coming in the last two, the visitors have moved up the table, and sit two points adrift of relegation at the moment.
The Chinese Super League 2019 match will be played between Jiangsu Sainty and Beijing Renhe F.C. at Nanjing Olympic Sports Center, in Nanjing, China. The ground has a capacity of 61,443. The game will start at 05:05 PM (IST), on Sunday, June 16.
