Beijing Renhe vs Shandong Luneng
Chinese Super League
Date: Sunday, 7 July 2019
Kick off at 12:35 UK / 13:35 CET
Venue: Guiyang Olympic Sports Center (Guiyang).
The visitors will be coming into the clash on Sunday on the back of a very positive result, at home, against league leaders Beijing Guoan, with the match finishing 2-0 in their favor. However, the squad have been struggling to pick up a consistent winning run of form on the road, with their most recent away game against Tianjin Teda ending in a dismal 2-1 scoreline.
The squad certainly enjoyed a lot more time on the ball than their opponents in that fixture, but went into the back foot 15 minutes after the kick-off, with a goal in the back of their own net. The team slumped further after conceding a second and managed not more than a consolation goal through Roger Guedes in the dying minutes of stoppage time.
It was clear that they failed miserably in taking a hold of the game despite making as many attempts at goal as their counterparts.
The home side, on the other hand, were handed a 3-1 defeat at home in their last fixture against Dalian Yifang. The squad were certainly outclassed in almost every aspect in that game and finished the ninety minutes with nine attempts at goal, while their opponents managed twenty-three.
The hosts are currently one of the two teams in the relegation zone, with just eleven points while the away team are currently on fourth with twenty-five. A win for the visitors will help them keep their one-point advantage over fifth-placed Chongqing Lifan, while three points for the home side might potentially see them cross over to the safe side for the weekend.

Beijing Renhe vs Shandong Luneng Prediction
The visitors are likely to make the trip back home with the three points under their belt, as they travel to the Guiyang Olympic Sports Center to meet Beijing Renhe this weekend.
The away team have just one win in their last five outings and have scored seven goals so far while conceding eight.
The home team have lost two of their last five matches on home soil, but have scored eight goals in the process which is one more than what their foes have achieved.
Considering that both the sides have not been shy in finding the back of the net in their recent games, we can certainly expect the fixture to produce more than two goals at the end of the ninety minutes.
With the visitors picking up a convincing win in their last game, they are the ones who have the slight upper hand this weekend to take all three points.
