Beijing Guoan vs Chongqing Lifan – China – The Beijing Guoan team arrives at this first round of the second turn
Beijing Guoan vs Chongqing Lifan – of the Chinese championship group phase, in the 2nd place of the Group B league table, with 14 points (4W, 2D, 1L, 15-10GS/GC).
Standing six points away from Shanghai SIPG, the Bruno Genésio’s team has already seen the rival play in this round so they can shorten their distance to the top to three points only, in case of a win.
After starting the championship with 4 wins in 4 matches, the Beijing Guoan has been disappointing, with three matches in a row without a single win, where they tied against two newly promoted teams (Qingdao Huanghai, 3-3; Shijiazhuang, 2-2), and lost in the classic match against Shanghai SIPG by 2 goals to one.
Chonqging Lifan is having a bad league campaign so far.
Being a squad that fights for the league maintenance, the team led by coach Eui-Ryong Jang occupies the 7th and penultimate position of the Group B table at the entrance to the 8th round, with only six points won (1W, 3D, 3L, 6-11GS/GC).
The only victory for Chonqging Lifan in this championship took place two days ago against Shijiazhuang (1-0), where Lifan had the luck of the match. In the last round, they lost 3-0 to Shanghai SIPG.
I think the odds are very much influenced by the streak of three straight matches without a win by Beijing Guoan, where there was for sure a lot of demerit by the title candidates, especially in the first two games, where they managed to waste a 3-0 advantage against Qingdao Huanghai and also wasted a minimal advantage in the “classic” against rivals Shanghai SIPG.
In the last round, Beijing Guoan played in numerical inferiority for more than a half. This Chonqging Lifan is, in my opinion, a team that has been showing less quality that the two newly promoted teams.
Already in the first round, they lost against Guoan although playing in numerical advantage for a long time.

Beijing Guoan vs Chongqing Lifan- Prediction:
Considering all of this, i’m expecting a positive reaction from Genésio’s team, which should be able to get a win in order to get once again closer to the leadership of Shanghai SIPG, and probably by a more or less comfortable margin, such is the difference i see between both teams.
