BEI Vs QIN Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Anything else than a win for Beijing Guoan today sees them lose out on the race for top spot
Although they are unbeaten in their last five fixtures in the Chinese Super League, Beijing Guoan will be the first to admit that they have underachieved in these encounters. With three draws in those clashes, the club has fallen four points behind first place in Group B.
And with Shanghai SIPG going out full throttle, to keep registering the wins, Guoan are slowly losing out on making it into top spot. Its what makes today’s impending outing for Guoan all the more important with this being a must win affair for the club as it looks to wipe away the four point margin separating them and the group leaders.
They’ll have little qualms in registering a win and keeping themselves in with a shout of ending up as Group B winners. They are clashing heads against 7th placed Qingdao, a side which was toyed around by Lifan the last time around to be dished out a horrendous 3-0 defeat, one which extended the side’s winless spin to five successive defeats.
With the solitary win in 11 matches this season, Qingdao have been one of the most horrid outfits in the league. The side has been nothing but sitting ducks in the competition, a team sides have been able to mould and decimate in any manner they have liked.
And so will the group’s second placed side with this being a completely lopsided win in Guoan’s favour.

BEI Vs QIN Team Picks
Despite being resigned to come up against an onslaught, Liu Zhenli has managed to stand firm and refused to be fazed. The Qingdao goal-keeper has been a silver lining in an otherwise appalling defence, a shot stopper who has hit the roof with his well worked and timed saves.
Beijing Guoan will be eagerly awaiting today’s encounter not only due to the three points at stake but also the fact that they have rediscover their defensive acumen in this showdown. With defence completely losing its way, the immediate need for the club is to pull up its socks once again and rekindle its stringent brand of defending.
Fortuitously, Qingdao will allow Guoan to accrue a cleansheet without breaking into a sweat. Qingdao have scored the second least number of goals in the group with the side failing to score in three of its last five fixtures.
It sees us reign in a triad of picks from Guoan with all of Wang Gang (8.5), Yang Yu (8) and Jin Taiyan (8) being snared by us.
Where Qingdao can’t stop leaking goals in the league, Guoan on the other hand can’t put the brakes on their emphatic attacking docket. The side has scored the most number of goals in Group B at a hefty 27 goals, a side set to banish Qingdao with a string of goals today.
It sees us role in the pivotal names from Guoan’s attacking slot in this department. We begin with Renato Augusto (9) who came alive for the club the last time around with a goal and his third assist of the season.
Jonathan Viera (9.5) can easily fill his shoes today with the goals as well to make him the second selection from the club. On the other hand, we have a duo being instilled in our setup, one comprising of the robust Joseph Marie Minala (9) and Zhou Junchen (9.5).
Cedric Bakambu (10.5) is going to instil fear in Qingdao’s ranks today. He’s not only going to storm Qingdao’s bastion but wipe the floor with the side today, a player who has dismissed the finest of defences this term.
We are going to be pairing him up with Yuning Zhang (9.5) who has the three goals to his name. Elsewhere, scorer of 50% of his side’s goals with the five goals and one assist, Romain Alessandrini (10) will represent us from the visiting team.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The 9 goals and 3 assists he’s struck for his club made Cedric the only viable choice as the day’s captain while Augusto is the vice-captain.
Zhenli, Yu, Gang, Taiyan, Augusto, Viera, Junchen, Joseph, Yuning, Cedric, Romain
