Description: SHN Vs GZ Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Guangzhou show first signs of revival with the club stringing up its opening win in the league.
Guangzhou needed five matches to usher in their first three points in the league but the club will be glad they finally came about. In a soup in the 2020-21 edition of the Chinese Super League, the side had to really grovel their way to their elusive win this new season.
The 1-0 win against Dalian saw the side for the first time ever show that they are not just mere pushovers in the league. Although the result came against the bottom placed side in the competition, the result alluded towards fight and character previously unknown in the side, traits which can go a long way for the club this term.
Unfortunately for them, these attributes alone won’t be enough to see them scrape their way out of today’s imminent encounter. When the side goes to take on Shanghai Shenhua, Guangzhou are envisaged to revert to losing ways with the second placed opponent making for way too daunting and ominous an opposition.
SHN Vs GZ Dream11 Probable Winner
Unbeaten in their last four encounters, a period in which they have gone onto win three encounters, Shanghai Shenhua can occupy top spot in Group A with a win today. The early exchanges of CSL 2020-21 have seen the team come hot out of the blocks with the side needing no time to pick up speed.
Immaculate and impeccable uptill now, Shenhua will hardly be perturbed today with the side cantering its way to an easy three points.

Dream 11 Picks
Without a cleansheet in four encounters, Guangzhou finally managed to do what they have yearned for till now the last time around. The club’s first cleansheet in the new season also brought about with it the side’s first win with goal-keeper Jiaqi Han pulling off an outstanding show of resillinace and grit.
Guangzhou’s abysmal and appalling defence has been at the forefront of their diabolic form this season. A woeful attack has scored on just two occasions with the side returning empty handed on four encounters.
And up infront of one of the most sublime and well versed defences in the league, Guangzhou’s rut will hardly be solved. The side looks set to be left bereft of yet another goal in this one to see us repose faith in Shanghai Shenhua’s entire defence for today.
Our set of picks begin with the selection of Zhao Mingjian with the player having provided the one goal for the club. His attacking acumen has been complimented by Feng Xiaoting who has the one assist to see the defender be picked dup by us owing to his attacking affinity.
Stamping their authority, both Zhu Chenjie and Jiabao Wen have refused to let sides through to see the duo be a must pick for us today.
With Kim out for today’s forthcoming encounter, all the onus of scoring for Shenhua will lie flatly on Giovanni Moreno. He’s the second leading scorer for the club with his one goal, a player capable of helping the side out of its quandary.
He is partnered up by Cao Yunding who has helped the side in its attacking travails by mustering together the two assists for the side. Stephen will complete the triad of picks from the club, three names set to make horrid for a club that has gone onto ship 11 goals in just 5 clashes.
The opposition will meanwhile see us opt for the pick of Moussa Dembele and Cao Yunding for this one. The two are being indulged in by us given their expansive versatile skill set, attributes which allow the two to canter their way in both the attacking and defensive gambit of the team’s gameplan.
Eran Zahavi has been responsible for the only two goals his side has strung together with the striker helping his side to a win the last time around. In a club where he has been completely devoid of any kind of assistance in attack, his two goals have been worth gold, ones which make him nail his place in our side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The one goal for Moreno will see him captain our side while Mingjian is the vice-captain.
