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

Tianjin Teda is currently at the 13th spot of the 16-team China top flight table, only four points above the bottom two relegation area where Changchun occupies one of its two spots. The team has been on a downward spiral as they have only won once in their last 12 fixtures, which made them dangerously close to relegation next season.

With only six games left in their season, the Tianjin Tigers are looking to finish the term strongly as they clash with Yatai in this home encounter.

Head coach Jaime Pacheco's squad is coming off a 0-2 defeat to second-running team Jiangsu Suning on the road at the Nanjing Olympic Sports Centre last Saturday, CCTV English reported.

Midfielders Xie Pengfei and Alex Teixeira scored one goal each for the hosts to hand Tianjin their second loss in their last three games.

Meanwhile, Changchun Yatai began their last-ditch effort to climb out of the relegation area with a remarkable 3-1 victory over Guangzhou R&F at the Development Area Stadium last Friday, as per Xinhuanet.

An own goal from the Blues Lions' Tang Miao opened the scoring at the fifth minute before Brazilian forward Renatinho equalized the match at the 40th.

Changchun's Fan Xiaodong and Marcelo Martins Moreno then scored one goal apiece in the second half to complete the two-goal win for head coach Lee Jang-soo's side.

Prediction and Predicted Lineup

The predicted result is a close 1-0 decision for Changchun Yatai.

Tianjin Teda starting lineup (4-2-3-1 formation): Yang; Bai, Jovanovic, Junior, Li; Pan, Guo; Hu, Montero, Hui; Evouna

Changchun Yatai starting lineup (4-4-2 formation): Yi; Jiang, Ismailov, Sun, Zhang; Fan, Pei, Matic, Li; Orsic, Moreno
