And surely enough, they'll have a lot on their plate to edge a victory against a team that has stayed firm in their previous encounters, but with desire and confidence building around them, they'll be driven to record a resounding outcome against Beijing Guoan.
One aspect of the hosts' performance that has stood out is their willingness to keep going, regardless of the negative outcomes they encounter along the way. They have also refrained from slowing down, and as a result, one could anticipate a fired-up Dalian Pro at home, making their victory in this case not surprising.
Beijing Guoan, who are favorites with the bookmakers, have been playing consistently thus far and have fared better in the super league than Dalian Pro. However, given the current state of affairs and their hosts' unexpected tenacity in games, it won't be as simple for them to win this time as they had anticipated.
Both sides are likely to score in this match given that both their defense lines can be vulnerable at times, which should make both teams score adequately in this situation. Although Beijing Guoan are the favorites, it would be prudent to take into account the hosts' success in netting past a goal.
