Wuhan Zall vs Chongqing Lifan
Chinese Super League
Date: Sunday, 23rd June 2019
Kick off at 12:35 UK/ 13:35 CET
Venue: Wuhan Sports Center Stadium (Wuhan).
The hosts Wuhan Zall will be in high hopes of grabbing the win, when they welcome visitors Chongqing Lifan to the Wuhan Sports Center Stadium on Sunday.
The home side’s most recently concluded away fixture against Guangzhou R&F was certainly one to remember, with the game ending 4-3 in their favor at the end of the ninety minutes. Despite their opponents breaking the deadlock through Eran Zahavi in the first twenty minutes, Li Tie’s side were able to grab a timely equalizer 5 minutes before the interval.
However, they were soon trailing again with Zahavi finding the back of the net again, towards the end of stoppage time in the first half. Everyone thought that the game was put to bed when the Guangzhou striker managed to complete his hat-trick at the hour mark. However, three quick goals in the span of five minutes caught the opposition unawares, giving Lie Tie’s men a much-deserved win.
Jordi Cruyff’s side were in for a bit of late drama themselves when they clashed against Shandong Luneng in their last match at home. His squad took the lead through Alan Kardec in the 68th minute and look poised to walk away with the win at the last blast of the whistle. However, his side conceded a late penalty in the dying minutes of stoppage time, which Graziano Pelle made no mistake in converting.
The hosts and the visitors are currently level on points in the table, hence a win will certainly be the top priority for both the teams.

Wuhan Zall vs Chongqing Lifan Prediction
The hosts are the favorites to come out on top in the clash on Sunday.
With just one loss in their last five matches, Li Tie’s side are certainly on a good run of form. Their counterparts, on the other hand, have been dismal on the road, failing to register a single win in their previous five outings.
What Jordi Cruyff’s side have managed, however, is to find the back of the net in four out of their last five games. Hence we can bet on them getting their names on the scoresheet when they clash with the home.
The match is likely to produce more than 2.5 goals, while Wuhan Zall will be the ones walking away with the three points at the end of the ninety minutes.
