Bottom two teams Shijiazhuang Ever Bright FC (4-12-9, 21 points) and Changchun Yatai FC (6-14-5, 23 points) will both need miracles to get out of the demotion zone as the 2016 Chinese Super League season slowly winds down to a close. They meet at the Yutong International Sports Center this Sunday, Sep. 25, to try and climb their way out of relegation.

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

Shijiazhuang Ever Bright extended their winless streak to six games after settling to a goalless draw with Beijing Guoan in a match held last Sunday at the Workers' Stadium, as per Soccerway.

The team had only earned a single win in their past 13 assignments, which dropped them down to the bottom-most spot of the 16-team China top flight table.

Head coach Li Jinyu's squad only has five games left in their campaign this term and it seems like they are headed to demotion to the China League One next season.

Only two points above Shijiazhuang is Changchun Yatai and with five games remaining in their season as well, the team could also be on its way to the Chinese second division competitions next year.

Changchun was blown out by fellow lowly team Tianjin Teda, 0-4, at the Tianjin Olympic Center Stadium on Wednesday to snap a three-game unbeaten run, via Sofa Score.

Head coach Lee Jang-soo's boys had no answer for the Tianjin onslaught as Colombian forward Fredy netted a brace while imports Mbaye Diagne and Malick Evouna had one goal each.

It would be a close, hard-fought match between the two desperate teams, but Changchun is slightly favored to prevail in their crucial encounter.

Prediction and Predicted Lineup

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

Shijiazhuang Ever Bright starting lineup (5-4-1 formation): Guan; Hu, Jiang, Li Chao, Cho, Mi; Matheus, Li Chunyu, Micael, Mao; Mauricio

Changchun Yatai starting lineup (4-1-4-1 formation): Yi; Jiang, Sun, Ismailov, Zhang; Matic; Fan, Sealy, Pei, Orsic; Moreno
