GED vs BEI Dream11 : Immense top of the table clash comes bearing with it massive ramifications for the top two sides in the league standings
We have one of the most momentous clashes in the Chinese Super League come our way today with the top two sides squaring off against each other. It’s a clash which promises to be an absolutely edge of the seat thriller, a resounding affair which could eventually end up shaping how the final league table looks like.
All the impetuous to come out of a win from this contest though lies squarely on Beijing Guoan with them chasing Guangzhou Evergrande at the moment. Placed pretty in the pinnacle of the points tally with 55 points, Guangzhou Evergrande sit well ahead of Guoan in second place with the four points separating the two sides seeing the table toppers head into the fray of this match composed.
A win becomes all the more important for Guoan with Shanghai SIPG in third place persistently snapping at their heels. A defeat could see them slip down to third, a predicament the side who have aspirations for the league title will look to avoid today. They head into this fixture having managed to break free of a two match losing spree with a 2-0 win over Hebei.
Elsewhere for Guangzhou Evergrande who are currently on a rampant five match winning spree, one that saw them displace their opponents from today and consolidate top spot for themselves. It’s a potion which they can all but make their won with a win today and expect them to come hot out of the blocks much like their opponents.
Given the humongous consequences on this encounter, expect to be regaled in a sublime soiree, one which sees both sides leave no stone unturned in a bid to amass three invaluable points. And given the perusal of worldclass players both these outfits posses, this match is going to be one of the finest in the league, an encounter you have to pencil your calendar for.
For us, Guangzhou Evergrande emerge from this match with a win to their name. The side are in exemplary touch at the moment, trouncing sides with ease and should emanate yet another flawless display.

Dream 11 Picks
Goal-Keeper for GED vs BEI Dream11
Despite both the sides coming into the encounter holding the identity of two of the stringiest defences in the league, a cleansheet looks unlikely today. Both sides will be looking to score and we see them succeeding in their quest.
It saw us choose our goal-keeper solely based on the player expected to make more saves, seeing us opt for Guoan’s Zou Dehai. The side have been guilty of allowing attacks to traverse past them with Dehai being called onto save the side and we envision the same happening today as well.
Defenders for GED vs BEI Dream11
Having fallen to two 1-0 defeats in their last three matches, Guoan have seen their season fall apart with the margins being extremely fine at the top of the league standings. The defence has surprisingly allowed itself to be breached and given the gaping holes present in it currently, we have decided to bring in their rightback Wang Gang for this one. Leftback Jin Taiyan comes in as well given his extremely reasonable price tag of 8 credits.
Elsewhere we have opted for two players from the other side given that Guangzhou Evergrande have the most astute defence in the league. The side have let in just 13 goals, imbued with sublime players who have dismissed opposition attacks with disdain. Along with their defensive capabilities, both Zhang Linpeng and Park Ji-Soo are also players who love moving into the opposition’s half in a bid to add strength to their side’s attacks and both come in for us.
Midfielders for GED vs BEI Dream11
Having scored a half-century of goals in their previous match, a 3-0 win, Guangzhou Evergrande went onto become the first side to reach the symbolic milestone. It was an achievement which saw them showcase their emphatic credentials as an attacking outfit, making it only befitting for us to shell out a staggering amount on their goal scorers here.
With goals in the previous encounter, Paulinho and Wei Shihao both come in from the side for us. Paulinho has scored 14 goals for the side while Shihao has 9 including the one penalty, seeing them both be picked out by us along with CDM Dinghao Yan who has provided excellent cover to his backline.
With the 41 goals for themselves, one which saw them occupy top place till a month back, Guoan have been equally impressive in the attacking side of things. Their top scorer, Renato Augusto with 10 goals and 5 penalties is picked up by us as the only player in this department.
Strikers for GED vs BEI Dream11
Meanwhile we have brought in Guangzhou Evergrande’s highest scorer, Elkeson in for this one. The striker has been in emphatic touch, cantering his way past opposition defences with sublime grace to score a massive 14 goals. He’s accompanied by goal scorer from last match, rightwinger Yang Liyu for this one.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Elkeson is chosen as our side’s captain for today while Paulinho is the vice-captain.
