Hebei vs Chongqing Lifan
China – Super League
Date: Friday, 7 August 2020
Kick-off at 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET
Venue: Suzhou Sports Centre.
Both these teams are searching for their first win in the league this campaign, after some tough fixtures. Xie Feng’s men will desperately try to deliver a good performance here, as their confidence is a bit shattered after taking on toppers Shanghai SIPG.
They are hopeful of their match-up against the struggling Chang Woe-Ryong’s men, who are on a long winless run at the moment. Moreover, Feng’s men also had won the latest encounter between the two dominatingly. As such, expect Hebei to be the better team on the pitch this weekend.
However, Woe-Ryong’s men know just how much of a challenge it would be to claw back if they fail to post their first win at least this weekend. They will give their 100% on the pitch this Friday, and we could count on them to score at least once.
Moreover, majority of h2h clashes did have goals from both teams as well.

Hebei vs Chongqing Lifan: Prediction
Woe-Ryong’s men are on a winless run of five matches, and they were winless in 12 of their past 14 fixtures as well. Also keep note that they had lost four of their preceding five games.
In addition, they had lost the latest h2h encounter 3-0, and have never once kept a clean sheet away from home in such fixtures in the Super League.
As such, expect Hebei to deliver a good performance this Friday.
However, overall Woe-Ryong’s men have been the better team in h2h fixtures, and only once have they failed to score against this rival in 10 of the preceding 11 games. Finally, understand that their opposite number had conceded two or more goals in four of their preceding five matches as well.
