GED vs GZ Dream11 Team: Guangzhou Evergrande look to continue their uprise in the league standings when they take on Guangzhou in this highly competitive derby
Be it in any country or league in the world, a derby in the footballing circuit is an extremely enticing encounter. And when Guangzhou and Guangzhou Evergrande will square off against each other today, the script will be no different in one of the most closely fought and feisty match of the Chinese Super League.
A extremely rigorously contested match, these two teams for Guangzhou have left no stone unturned when they face off against each other in the league. Hailing from the same city, the ambition to outdo the other and get a win in this pivotal encounter takes paramount importance for both the outfits, adding to the bitterly competitive nature of this match.
Today’s fixture promises to be no different between two sides who in between them have made for two of the most delightful watches when it comes to the attacking side of the pitch. With a colossal 76 goals scored in between them, these teams have made light work of opposing defences, pummelling them with extreme ease to regale us in a sublime brand of full fledged football.
While the hosts for today, Guangzhou haven’t been able to compete with Guangzhou Evergrande in the larger scheme of things, finding themselves sitting at a morose 7th place in the league standings, their lack of intent when it comes to scoring goals can’t be doubted. And it’s what sees them head into this match equally levelling the scales to make this a finely poised encounter between the two rivals.
Elsewhere for Guangzhou Evergrande, this edition of CSL has been another pinch perfect one with the side setting out to reclaim their title. Only two points behind Beijing Guoan at the moment, not only will this win see them take the top position but also imbue into the side immense confidence which will hold them in good stead going forward.
Whilst form and current spree all goes out of the window when these two sides face off against each other in the derby, Guangzhou Evergrande’s five match winning spree is too hard to ignore. The side have not put one step wrong in their perusal of the title, perfectly imbuing in themselves both the attacking and defensive side of the game to see them keep snapping at Guano’s heels.
Expect this to be an absolute humdinger, a match which will see goals galore and expect Guangzhou Evergrande to emerge the winner based on their superior defence.
Goal-Keeper for GED vs GZ Dream11
With a cleansheet extremely unlikely today, we have gone ahead with Guangzhou’s Yuelei Cheng for this one. His defence makes for a dismal viewing, one that is tepid in nature and with him bound to face an onslaught of shots, the possibility of save points increases massively.
Defenders for GED vs GZ Dream11
With Guangzhou Evergrande having let in just 13 goals across their 18 goals, if there is any side which might just emerge from a shut out from this one, it’s going to be them. And it’s exactly this figure which has seen us go ahead with Zhang Linpeng, Park Ji So, and Zhunyi Gao from the side, getting in their entire three mainstays to come in and hold fort for us in this match.
Midfielders for GED vs GZ Dream11
With 10 goals, Paulinho from Guangzhou Evergrande comes into our side, accompanied by Wei Shihao who has been responsible for 6 goals. While we wanted to opt for Talisca as well, his high price tag saw us leave him out, going ahead with Shihao who has stepped up perfectly in his absence to take over the goal scoring abilities and become a major reason for his side’s consummate success.
Dinghao Yan completes our trio of picks from the side while the two man partnership from Guangzhou is represented by Fan Yunlong and Lu Lin.
Strikers for GED vs GZ Dream11
Responsible for more than half of the goals his side have managed to traverse past in the tournament, Eran Zahavi has undoubtedly been the striker of the season. He’s scored a momentous 21 goals, seeing himself sit in the pinnacle of goal scorers, parrying away defences with such disdain.
From the opposition we have Yang Liyu wrapping up our Dream 11 side for the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Wei Shihao has been chosen to represent us our side today with him becoming the captain’s pick while Paulinho is the vice-captain.
