Beijing Guoan vs Wuhan Zall
Chinese Super League
Date: Saturday, 6 July 2019
Kick off at 12:35 UK / 13:35 CET
Venue: Workers’ Stadium (Beijing).
The table toppers Beijing Guoan endured a disappointing game against Shandong Luneng, in their last trip on the road, and were handed what was only their second defeat in the campaign.
The squad will be hoping to bounce back in resounding fashion this weekend when they welcome seventh-placed Wuhan Zall to their midst. The hosts have not lost a single game at home this season, with their most recent win on home soil against Guangzhou R&F finishing in a 3-2 scoreline.
Despite heading into the break trailing, in that fixture, the home team staged a comeback after the restart and found the winning goal in the dying minutes of stoppage time. The squad kept the ball in their possession a lot longer than their counterparts and made eighteen attempts at goal, half of which were on target.
Their foes Wuhan Zall will be coming into the game on the back of a 2-0 win against Hebei on the road. The team were passive in the first half and took the game into their hands only after the interval, with Jean Kouassi opening the scoring twelve minutes after the restart.
Ten minutes later, Silva Rafael sealed the game after making no mistake from the spot. The team made just nine attempts at goal in the ninety minutes and were on target on four occasions.
Both the teams have a slender two-point advantage over the respective teams below them, so anything but a win will not be enough this weekend.

Beijing Guoan vs Wuhan Zall Prediction
The home side are certainly the favorites to seal the win when the two teams clash against each other on Saturday.
The hosts are undefeated on home soil so far and have been consistent in scoring two goals or more in their last five fixtures. The squad have scored fourteen goals in the process, and have conceded less than half of that number.
Despite suffering back to back defeats in their first three trips on the road this season, the squad have picked themselves up and are currently on a three-match winning streak. Their latest win also saw them picking up their first clean sheet away from home as well.
Both the teams have been consistent in getting on the scoresheet in their last three games, so we can certainly expect a high scoring clash this weekend.
With nine of the fourteen goals for the hosts coming in the first forty-five minutes of the game, we can certainly bet on Beijing to open their scoring before the teams head for the break.
