HBI Vs BJG Dream 11 Team Prediction : Bottom of the table clash sees last-placed Beijing Rehne and Hebei square off against each other.
To say that this has been an underwhelming season for Beijing Rehne would be a massive understatement. Hammered down right in the trenches of the league standings with just the three wins, the club look set to finish the league in bottom place with the side finding it extremely difficult to break free of their impasse.
Winless in their last 10 matches and having four defeats in their last five, Beijing Rehne have become the battering boys of the Chinese Super League. They have gone onto concede a horrid 12 goals in their last 5 matches, the most recent being a 2-1 defeat against Henan Jainye, one which saw them further lose any chance of making it out of the relegation zone.
Elsewhere for their opponents Hebei, things haven’t been any nicer. The club are just marginally above Beijing Rehne with their 20 points placing them in 13th place. Trounced 3-0 by Shandong Luneng in their previous outing, the club have now lost two matches on the bounce, taking their matches lost tally to 12 encounters.
Squaring off against each other today, both these bottom of the league clubs know that they couldn’t have been accorded with more pristine an opportunity to add two crucial points infront of their name. They are up against an opponent which is finely poised with them, a team which if they go out and play their best football, they have a solid chance of defeating on the day.
Although Hebei have been extremely dismal this campaign, they have just about marginally managed to do better than their opponents for the day. Beijing Rehne have offered nothing in either facet, scoring a sorry 18 goals while going onto concede a colossal 46, an apathy which has been a major cause for their predicament.
This should be an encounter where both the sides score but Hebei should manage to outscore their opponents with ease.

Dream 11 Picks
Having leaked 83 goals in the 44 encounters played between each other, both these sides have lacked the basic knowhow needed when it comes to defending. They have made for the worst attacking outfits by some distance, being cleaned apart by sides with will who have capitalised on their ability to catapult.
And it’s this aberration which sees a cleansheet being next to improbable today, seeing us go for the stop stopper who is more adept when it comes to making saves. And Zhang Lie from Beijing Rehne emerges as the winner based on that criteria with the goal-keeper having made several well worked stops across the course of this campaign.
With us heading into this segment with the knowledge that goals will be scored rampantly today, our only concern when picking out defenders was to go with the players who are known for their contributions up the pitch as well. All or three picks were done based on the same requirements with us choosing names who have a penchant for cantering down the pitch and dutifully helping their side’s attacking sojourns as well.
This sees us rope in both the players on the left from Hebei with us getting in their left-back and left defender Jiang Wenjun and Jiang Zinpeng. With the side playing 5 at the back in a formation which can transition into a three-man defence paired with two wingbacks, the fullbacks make for excellent value, players likely to record an assist or goal in the encounter.
From Rehne we are getting in Luo Xin who looks to be the ideal player to indulge in from the side’s defence. With the side’s right-back suspended and the rest of the unit being shuffled around at will, Luo is someone who has managed to retain his place in the side, making the centreback the best pick from the unit.
If these sides have struggled at the back, the front of the park hasn’t seen them overhaul their malicious form either. While Rehne have the worst scoring record in the league with a mere 18 goals, Hebei haven’t fared much better, managed to rummage their way past the opposition’s goal on jus 23 occasions.
However, with this match bearing such massive ramifications and both the sides squaring off against a lopsided defence, we should see goals being scored in this one. This sees us pick out Jie Chen and Cao Yongjing from Beijing with the two players being pivotal to their side’s chances of finding goals. Cao in particular in the CAM role is someone who will need to seamlessly blend in defence into attack and help not only scour past defences and open up spaces but come up with well-cued shoots as well.
From the other side, we have opted for a duo as well with us selecting to bring in Wang Qiuming and Zhang Wei.
When we reached this facet and were pondering through our options from Rehne, there was one name which caught our eye instantly. The side’s lone striker up front, Makhete Diop has been responsible for half of the side’s goals, scoring 9 of them and was an instant pick by us.
Elsewhere we have picked out the two-man partnership from the opposition with us indulging in the services of both Marcao and Xuesheng Dong with the two scoring 13 goals in between them. Both have matched each other when it comes to scoring with Dong getting 7 and Marcao 6, each complimenting the other to perfection and should end up getting a rich bagful of goals today as well.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We have chosen Dong as our captain for this one while Diop is the vice-captain.
