The game starts at 7:35 p.m. UTC+8. It can be viewed live online thru FuboTV.

Beijing Guoan was able to string three consecutive unbeaten performances to lift them at the seventh spot of the current China top flight table. The team is presently tied on points with reeling contenders Guangzhou R&F, but has a higher goal difference which made them take the higher spot with six games remaining in their campaign this term.

The team settled for a 0-0 draw with cellar-dwellers Shijiazhuang Ever Bright in their most recent match last Sunday held also at their home field in Beijing, as per Sofa Score.

Head coach Xie Feng's men were unable to penetrate the net of Shijiazhuang goalkeeper Guan Zhen even once during the match as Ever Bright was desperate to get out of the bottom two relegation zone with the season slowly coming down to a close.

The Imperial Guards will take the stalemate as it will still give them a point in the overall standings to ensure that they will not get demoted to the China League One next season.

Meanwhile, Yanbian Funde pulled off a stunning 3-2 win over fellow newly-promoted side Hebei China Fortune at the Yanji Nationwide Fitness Centre Stadium last Saturday, via Soccerway.

The hosts overcame a brace by Hebei's Brazilian import Aloisio by scoring three goals of their own, courtesy of South Korean forward Kim Seung-dae, Gambian midfielder Bubacarr Trawally, and local defender Cui Min.

With the win, Yanbian snapped their two-game losing streak and they are expected to prevail in a close match against Beijing this week.

Prediction and Predicted Lineup

The predicted result is a 1-0 win for Yanbian Funde.

Beijing Guoan starting lineup (4-2-3-1 formation): Yang; Zhao, Krimets, Lei, Li; Ralf, Augusto; Zhang C.D., Yu, Zhang C.M.; Yilmaz
