The biggest game of the season so far takes place tomorrow (Saturday) night as second-placed Shanghai SIPG welcome league leaders Guangzhou Evergrande in match which will have a famous face watching from the stands.
Not only will the game feature genuine star power on the pitch from the likes of Hulk with SIPG and Guangzhou Evergrande’s Paulinho, but off the pitch Cristiano Ronaldo will be in the stands at Shanghai Stadium – he’s in China on a promotional trip for a few days and wants to see the big match.
SIPG are in better form going into this game but history is very much against them – since their promotion to the CSL in 2013, they have yet to beat Evergrande. The Shanghai’s head to head record in this fixture reads P11 W0 D5 L6.
The game kicks off tomorrow (Saturday) at 19.35 Beijing time (11.35 GMT) and you can watch it this weekend on this official CSL stream from OZ Sports.
