Wuhan Zall vs Henan Jianye
Chinese Super League
Date: Saturday, 8 June 2019
Kick-Off 12:35 UK / 13:35 CET
Venue: Wuhan Sports Center Stadium (Wuhan).
Wuhan Zall and Henan Jianye will enter the only Chinese Super League clash of the weekend in completely opposite moods. The hosts won three of last four games to avoid the red zone and climb as high as 9th in the league ladder. They started the campaign as one of the main candidates for relegation having only been promoted to the elite tier last season.
The hosts did get off to a wrong-foot start as they were struggling to adjust to life in the top class of Chinese football. However, the head coach Li Tie managed to find the winning formula over the last couple of weeks. Wuhan Zall also took advantage of the easier schedule as last two wins came against two of the weakest teams in the division (Tianjin Tianhai and Shenzhen). Can they keep the excellent spell of form and make it three victories on the spin here against the Red Devils?

These two likes did not have the chance to cross each other’s paths in the past.
Wuhan Zall vs Henan Jianye: Prediction
Henan Jianye sit two points below their Saturday counterparts after 11 rounds of the competition. They took just one point from last three games due to a super-challenging schedule which saw them play the likes of Shanghai SIPG (defending champions) and Guangzhou Evergrande in the process.
The manager Wang Baoshan will still be without a huge signing Henrique Dourado who suffered an injury in the very first appearance back in March. The attacking line thus heavily depends on Cameroonian duo Frank Ohandza and Christian Bassogog who combined the total of nine goals so far in the season.
Wuhan Zall kept just one clean sheet in last ten matches across competitions. They will be up against a team which conceded five goals last weekend at home against Guangzhou Evergrande. Backing goals at both ends is the way to go, while we see a tremendous value in backing Ohandza to score anytime for the visitors at the odds of 2.75.
