BRF Vs XFT Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Top of the table battle sees two stalwarts go at loggerheads in what looks set to be a cliff-hanger.
While first spot in CBA 2019-20 was untouchable, such has been the dominance of Guangdong in this season, Xinjiang Flying Tigers ensured that they were able to nestle themselves into the next best available position. The club has been in runaway form all season long, registering 31 wins in 9 fixtures to sit in second position, a spot they have made their home for the season.
And it’s a position deserving of the side, such has been the exuberant manner in which the side has clamped down on the spot. With five wins on the spin, the side has lost just the solitary tie since the league has returned to the competition to not only stamp their authority on the competition but show why they are held in such high esteem.
Today’s clash will finally serve a real test to them today with the team taking on fourth placed Beijing Royal Fighters. With four wins in a row, Beijing Royal Fighters saw their 104-97 win in the previous affair take them into the top 4, a spot which assures the club of direct qualification into the quarter-finals of the league.
This is set to be one of the most intriguing ties in the league with two impeccable sides regaling us in an enthralling affair. The barest of margins will come into play to determine the winner from the impending clash with us envisaging Xinjiang just about managing to scoot their way to a narrowly fought and hard earned win.

BRF Vs XFT Dream11 Picks
All across the course of the season, point guard Yue Sun has played a crucial role for Beijing Royal Fighters. The fact that he was accorded a rest the last time around alluded towards his importance for the club with the player being a part of the club’s resurgence owing to his traits to pull off the quick break points for the side.
Xinjiang Flying Tigers have a wordclass point guard at their disposal as well with the tenacity and guile of John Glover coming to the fore for the first time last time around. Playing his first clash in the competition the last time around, the player was at his luscious best, cajoling his way a staggering 19 points and 6 rebounds as he took the league like a fish takes to water.
We are going to be partnering him up with Qi Lin for this affair, two names who are bound to move in tandem as they look to accrue points at crucial junctures today. This will be a tie where his side will need to rely on shooting from the midrange region, a discourse which will see Qi Lin be handed over the ball on ample occasions.
Sehirelijian Muxtar’s 12 points for Xinjiang in the last outing will make the small forward our pick for the day. He’s someone who has coxed his way the triples without any qualms, a player capable of quashing the best of the defences with his ability to open the zone and lay up points from the deep.
We keep peeling off players from the second placed juggernaut with Rufukati Jiang becoming the last name to be indulged in by us for the clash. At a measly 5.5 credits, he was a must have name with the player capable of utilising his substitute role to full effect to send down the points in the paint.
Beijing Royal Fighters also finally feature once again for us with their mainstay in attack, Arnett Moultrie being too good a name to let slip off. The player’s insatiable famish for points inside the paint have not only seen him latch onto the second chance points but have seen him pull off the jumping shot and floating shots with ease.
Zong Zan has played the perfect fiddle to Arnett all season long to see the two form one of the most daunting and indomitable partnerships in the league. His scrimmages on the court the last time around transcended into a tranquil 15 points and 6 rebounds to make him a must have selection for the clash.
The opposition on the other hand meanwhile see us indulge in the services of their fulcrum. Zhou Qi might just end up winning the league for the side this term around with the player on a quest to seal the glistening trophy, hunger which has seen him presently drop double-doubles since the league has returned.
The 30-15 double-double for him the last time around see us opt for Qi as our side’s star player while Arnett is the vice-captain.
