CHQ Vs SHIJ Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Lifan left scrounging for a win with the team failing to wrench out of the pickle it finds itself in
They have played five matches in the Chinese Super League 2020-21 but Group B side Chongqing Lifan still find themselves devoid of their opening win in the new season. To add to the side’s woes, the team’s string of three successive drab draws was curtailed the last time around with the team finally falling to a 2-0 defeat to Wuhan Zall.
The result saw the side slump to 7th place in the group and already see the distance between itself top spot widen to 10 points. Its form which leaves them as sitting ducks in the group with the side serving nothing but the purpose of pushovers in the competition at the moment.
Already having looked like they have run their race, for Lifan, things don’t get any easier either. The club comes across a Shijiazhuang Ever Bright side which is unbeaten across its last two encounters, a team striving to keep snapping at Wuhan’s heels with a win in its kitty.
Although Shijiazhuang themselves only have the one win to show for after five encounters, one takes massive precedence over zero. And unlike Lifan, they have managed to string together meaningful showings infront of the goal, attacking acumen which will guide the side to a win today.

Dream 11 Picks
Everything will lie squarely on Sui Weijie for Chongqing Lifan today. The player will be asked to put in a real shift today as he’s overworked with the opposition unleashing a real barrage upon him.
Luckily for him and his side, he’s someone imbued with not only acumen but gallantry as well, traits which will serve him fruitfully in curbing the opposition from scoring.
Now having failed to have scored on two straight occasions, only the bottom placed side in Group B have scored fewer goals than Lifan. There has been absolutely no show of a fight from Lifan with the team massively lacking in the attacking facet.
This is a side which will massively interested Shijiazhuang in a cleansheet today. The club is set to decide how proceedings unfold with their revelling in a magnitude of possession hardly according the opposition with any touches of the ball.
Given the precedence a cleansheet takes for the visiting team, it was only rightful of us to paint this ambit in the team’s colors. All our picks are from the side with us indulging ourselves in the trio of Lia Chengjian, Zheng Zhiyun and Stoppila Sunzu from the side.
Had it not been for Luiz Guilherme Silva, Shijiazhuang would have found themselves lingering close to Lifan in the points tally. After failing to win three encounters in a spin, the club has managed to go on an unbeaten spin in two straight encounters owing to Silva’s unnerving commitment.
He’s not wavered and flinched to emerge as his side’s top scorer with the two goals, ones which make him an instant pick for us today. And a reason he’s been able to express himself freely and pile on the goals is due to Zang Yifeng who has also come up with the two goals for the side.
With Lifan already having conceded 8 goals in the league, we have Peng Wang come in as well with the triad set to make life treacherous for Lifan.
In a side which has seen only two players pop up with assists, Adrian Mierzejewski has emerged as one of them. He’s been a spark of life in an otherwise horrendous attacking side, a player who has tried his best to inspire Lifan’s attacking gameplan.
Feng Jing joins up with him, two players capable of moving in unison and stringing together atleast the one goal for the side today.
Alan Kardec has reposed the faith Lifan have earmarked in him this season, Despite treading on thin ice in a side devoid of any attacking acumen, he’s managed to score on one occasion to see us opt for the striker today.
Matheus Leite has not only scored but he’s more importantly laid up two goals for his side this season, ones which allude to his versatile skill set to see him complete our set of picks for the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Two goals and one assist see us make Luiz our captain for the day while Leite is the vice-captain.
