Liaoning Whowin had dropped to the 12th spot of the 16-team Chinese first division table as they had been winless in five of their last six matches. The team had been struggling in form and has only seen victory once since August, which was a 2-0 victory over Hangzhou Greentown.

Head coach Ma Lin's side was crushed by defending champions and league leaders Guangzhou Evergrande, 2-6, during their match last Sunday at the Tianhe Stadium, as per Xinhuanet.

Congolese defender Assani Lukimya and Australian winger Dario Vidosic scored a goal each for the visitors at the 24th and 65th minutes, but they were not able to stop the Southern China Tigers from unleashing six goals throughout the contest.

Meanwhile, Yanbian Funde is also struggling at the moment, winning only once in their last five outings.

Last season's China League One champions were drubbed by capital city team Beijing Guoan, 0-3, on Wednesday at the Workers' Stadium to succumb to their third loss in four games, via Cri English.

Head coach Park Tae-ha's boys were held scoreless by the Imperial Guards in the whole match while the hosts hit three goals from their side.

Liaoning is the slight favorite to win at home in this match as they are also the better-rested squad going into their meeting this weekend.

Liaoning Whowin starting lineup (3-5-2 formation): Zhang; Wu, Lukimya, Zhang; Wang L., Hu, Sun, Wang H., Song; Vidosic, Ujah
