Wuhan Zall will be hoping to bounce back here after the 1-0 2020 Super League defeat in their last game at the hands of Henan Jianye.
A recurring trait of recent Wuhan Zall games is the number of results with a nil in them.
From their prior sextet of matches leading up to this one, in 5 of them a bet on BTTS would have been a loser. Such a trend isn’t assured to be carried forward into this match, though.
The strike force from Henan Jianye have made hard work of scoring goals over their previous 6 games, recording the disappointing return of only 4. In those matches, Henan Jianye have also seen the collective goal aggregate of opposing teams equal 12.
Team News: Wuhan Zall
Daniel Carriço (Unknown Injury) and Rafael Silva (Knee Injury) are not available for Wuhan Zall manager José González.
Team News: Henan Jianye
Thanks to a largely healthy squad, there’s only the one fitness problem for the Henan Jianye boss Yang Ji to be concerned about. Sung-hwan Kim (Unknown Injury) won’t be in action.
When taking everything into account, Henan Jianye might have a difficult job to hit the back of the net against this Wuhan Zall lineup who will likely get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
We’re therefore predicting a good tussle with a 1-0 winning margin for Wuhan Zall when the referee blows for full-time.
A close call.
