On September 16, within the framework of the eleventh round of the Chinese Super League, Group B “Qingdao Huanghai” – “Chongqing Lifang” will meet. The nominal guests today have a real chance to join the fight for a place in the top four, but for this they need to gain three points. Their rival, in turn, in case of defeat, will lose even the theoretical possibility of being there. How will the meeting end? Read about it in our forecast.
“Qingdao Huanghai” deprived itself of the opportunity to wedge into the race for a place in the sun. The club suffered four defeats in a row, three of which were from contenders for third and fourth places: Hebei (1: 2), Wuhan (0: 3), and Shijiazhuang (0: 1). In the last round, the team struggled to rectify the current situation in the confrontation with the leader of the group, Shanghai, but all efforts were in vain – 1: 2.
Now the team should start preparing for the second stage of the season. Ahead of “Qingdao” tough matches, for the preservation of registration in the elite division.
Chongqing Lifan, due to two victories in a row, managed to return itself to the number of candidates for a place in the top 4. However, this is more of a formality than reality. Ahead of the team are matches against top clubs, in which everything will be decided. But judging by the results of the first round, then the Chongqing is not the most joyful one.
The team scores very little, and this is the biggest problem. With an average performance of 1.3 goals per game, you can only count on something serious with a perfect defense, but there is none either. Therefore, the last two victories should not consider any gigantic significance.
The meeting of the first round ended in a dry draw;
Qingdao ranked second in terms of goals scored (10).
11.08.20 Chongqing Lifang Qingdao Huanghai 0: 0
Both teams do not seem to be the benchmark for reliability. It will not be easy for the nominal owners to win, but for them this is one of the last opportunities to score points in the first stage of the championship. Their opponent needs a victory more, but there is no confidence that the team will definitely achieve it. Based on the above, there should be no zeros on the scoreboard this time.
Our forecast – both will score – yes, with the odds of 1.78 from the bookmaker 1xBet.
