Meanwhile, Changchun Yatai enter the contest off the back of a 2-0 victory over Shenzhen in their last league match at Wuyuan River Stadium Field 2, extending their unbeaten run to three games.
Tan Long opened the scoring for Changchun Yatai inside the first three minutes before later doubling the advantage for his side in the 11 minute, with the visitors eventually coming away with all three points. That result has left Chen Jingang’s side in 11th place on 41 points, 11 points behind their opponents on Thursday.
When these two teams last met in Chinese Super League action, Beijing Guoan came out on top with a 1-0 scoreline at Changchun’s People Stadium in October, with Yuning Zhang scoring the only goal of the game in the 35th minute.
