Dalian Yifang vs Henan Jianye
Chinese Super League
Date: Sunday, 7 July 2019
Kick off at 12:35 UK / 13:35 CET
Venue: Jinzhou Stadium (Dalian).
The home side’s last fixture against Beijing Renhe, on the road, saw them taste success with the match finishing 3-1 in their favor at the end of the ninety minutes. However, the squad failed to pick up a similar win in their last game at home against Tianjin Tianhai, with the latter holding them to a 2-2 draw.
The squad took the lead by the end of the first half but an own goal into their net, close to the hour mark, meant both the teams would have to be content with a single point. The hosts enjoyed a lot more time on the ball and made ten attempts at goal, four of which were on target.
Henan Jianye failed to get on the scoresheet in their last fixture on the road against Guangzhou R&F, with the final scoreline reading 2-0 in favor of the latter. The team failed to take not more than six shots at goal, half of which were not even on target and were also restricted from keeping a hold of possession as well.
Both the squads are level on points in the league with seventeen points, with the hosts edging past the visitors on top with a slightly better goal difference.

Dalian Yifang vs Henan Jianye Prediction
The hosts are likely to bag the win by not more than a slender margin when the teams clash with each other at the Jinzhou Stadium this weekend.
The visitors drew three of their last four fixtures on the road, and have scored not more than one goal in the process. The away side have just not been a threat in the attacking third and have gone two games without finding the back of the net as well.
The home side, on the other hand, have netted four goals in their last four games and have created a lot more opportunities in the final third than their foes.
Considering that both the sides have not been clinical in finding the back of the net too often, in their recent matches, we can certainly bet on low scoring clash to happen between them this weekend with Dalian Yifang likely to take the win by a slender margin.
