Hebei China Fortune are set to play Beijing Guoan at the Suzhou City Stadium on Tuesday in their next Chinese Super League (CSL) fixture.
Hebei China Fortune come into this game on the back of a disappointing 3-1 loss to Chongqing Lifan on Friday at the Kunshan Sports Centre Stadium. Goals from Fernandinho, Alan Kardec and Adrian Mierzejewski secured the win for Chang Woe-ryong's men. Marcos Vinicius scored the consolation goal for Hebei China Fortune in the second half.
Beijing Guoan, on the other hand, comfortably beat Tianjin TEDA 2-0 on Thursday at the Suzhou Olympic Sports Centre. Goals from Zhang Yuning and Renato Augusto ensured that Bruno Genesio's side emerged victorious.
