The game starts at 7:35 p.m. UTC+8. It can be viewed live online thru FuboTV.

Second-running team Jiangsu is only six points behind current league leaders and reigning champions Guangzhou Evergrande in the overall standings with six rounds left in the season.

With a late push and an unfortunate finish for the Southern China Tigers as the season winds down, head coach Choi Yong-soo's side could still have a chance to unseat the defending champions from their lofty five-year reign.

Jiangsu is coming off a 6-1 demolition of cellar-dwelling team Shijiazhuang Ever Bright last Sunday at the Yutong International Sports Center to pull off a three-game winning streak, as per Xinhuanet.

The win was also the team's fifth in their last six games as they aim to end the season strongly.

Brazilian winger Alex Teixeira provided a hat trick at the 34th, 54th, and 90th+3 minutes while Ji Xiang, Roger Martinez, and an own goal from Ever Bright's Jiang Jihong at the 30th, 85th, and 90th minutes respectively completed the visitors' six-goal haul in the contest.

Meanwhile, finally snapped a 10-game winless slide as it nipped Henan Jianye, 2-1, at the Tianjin Olympic Center Stadium last Saturday, via Soccerway.

After Henan striker Osman Sow opened the scoring at the fifth minute, the Tianjin Tigers then netted the next two goals, courtesy of imports Fredy Montero and Malick Evouna in the first half injury time and at the 89th minute, to achieve the come-from-behind victory.
