Description: SHIJ Vs BEI Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Beijing Guoan hit a rut after torching their way into second place in Group B.
Looking invincible as they sat in first place in Group B with four wins from four in the 2020-21 edition of the Chinese Super League, Beijing Guoan are now without a result in two straight affairs. The side finally encountered its first defeat in the league the last time around, a result which saw them lose their grip on top spot in the points tally.
Defeated 2-1 by Shanghai SIPG the last time around, today’s tie comes bearing with it colossal ramifications for Beijing Guoan. And they’ll be highly pleased with the opposition served up infront of them with 7th placed Shijiazhuang set to be nothing else but mere pushovers today.
After stringing together two unbeaten results in the midst of a horrendous start to the new season, things quickly reverted to usual manner for today’s home side. The 1-0 defeat to Lifan leaves the side with just the one win in six ties with time running out for the club and running out fast.

Shijiazhuang’s plight makes for perplexing viewing. While the side hasn’t been the worst side in the group by any stretch, it’s the side’s gameplan which has let them down with the team failing to adapt and adjust in high pressure situations.
This lack of composure will result in yet another defeat for them. Although they can hurt Guoan’s defence, their inability to pacify the opposition’s attack will see them be dismissed to their second defeat on the bounce.

Dream 11 Picks
Shao Puliang couldn’t have done much more than he did against Lifan. Coming up with save after save all throughout the 90 minutes, the Shijiazhuang goal-keeper left no stone unturned to salvage something for his side from the affair.
Despite romping up win after win, Beijing Guoan were riding their luck defensively. The team was consistently biting off more than it could chew, a dilemma which was set to leave the side resigned to a defeat sooner rather than later.
And that moment finally came about in the side’s bygone result. However, that did little to deter us from opting from a trio from the club with the side coming across a side which has not tasted much success infront of the goal.
With two assists in his kitty, Wang Gang will become the first name to be inculcated in our side from the club for this one. He’s partnered up by the dynamic and diminutive Yu Dabao and Kim Min-Jae, two players whose acumen in defence can help the side banish its dormant prevailing issues.
Although not many are giving the home side a chance today, the duo we are snaring from the side can leave Guoan distressed today. Matheus Leite has waged a lone battle for the side with his one goal and two assists in the league expediating his stature as a mainstay of the side’s attack.
Zang Yifeng with the two goals slots in next to him, two players more than capable of capitalising on a vulnerable Guoan defence.
The visiting team on other hand sees a reminiscent duo be enshrined in our side. It’s one constituting of Jonathan Viera who has the most number of assists at two for the club with the electric Zhang Xizhe partnering up with him.
The focal points of Guoan’s attack, Alan and Cedric Bakambu have had a telling impact on the club. Both have moved in tandem to emerge as one of the finest attacking duo in the league with both scouring a couple of goals to their name.
The opposition’s top scorer with two goals and one assist, the worldclass Luiz Guiherme-Silva brings down the curtains on our set of picks for the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With the two goals apiece, Alan will captain our side for today while Bakambu is the vice-captain.
