Beijing Guoan vs Tianjin TEDA Prediction
Beijing Guoan are the clear favourites for this match. The attacking trio of Spain international Jonathan Viera, former Villarreal striker Cedric Bakambu and Zhang Yuning will be crucial.
Tianjin TEDA, on the other hand, have lost their last five CSL games. A positive result is much-needed, and the likes of Ghana international Frank Acheampong will have to step up if they are to have a chance against Beijing Guoan.
Prediction: Beijing Guoan 2-0 Tianjin TEDA
