What is the position of South Africa and China?
South Africa sits at the bottom of Group B with no point. China is third with no point after one game.
What is the form of South Africa as compared to China?
South Africa was on the brink of a famous win in its opening group game but for three late goals by Spain to tip the scales. It has been a tough going for the Bayana Bayana who is yet to record a win in its last 11 outings.
The last time Desiree Ellis' side was victorious in a game was against Mali at the Africa Women's Cup of Nations back in November 2018. While the three draws during the period are certainly not enough, South Africa's showing in the early minutes of the encounter with Spain was one which suggested that a turn in fortune might not be far off.
Still, they would be required to go an extra mile coming up against a Chinese side that is in a better form. The Asians have won two of its last four matches but are without a win in their last two outings across all competitions.
Over the last 10 matches, they have managed five wins and five defeats. With Germany only running away with a narrow 1-0 win in the opening game, Jia XiuQuan's ladies are odds on favorites to send the Bayana Bayana on the brink of elimination.
What is the head-to-head record of South Africa and China?
The upcoming clash will be the second in history between South Africa and China. The first was at the 2016 Olympics where the latter won by two goals to nil.
