At the rate Guangzhou Evergrande is going, it looks like most of the teams wil not be able to stop them. The only 2 teams that may pose a threat to Evergrande's current from would be Beijing Guoan and Shanghai SIPG. Evergrande have been raking in impressive and convincing wins both home and away so much so, they have become a reliable horse to even play a -1 handicap. As for Dalian Yifang, they are quite a good team but yet to reach the kind of standards set by the top 3 teams. Guangzhou Evergrande should win this, handicap -1 not advised as Dalian is a much better team away rather than home. Just to be safe as this win may be quite marginal.
