Dalian Pro take on the visitors Beijing Guoan in the round 12 match of Chinese Super League. The match will be played on Friday, June 9th at Dalian Sports Center Stadium (Dalian).
Dalian Pro are currently the weakest team in the Chinese Super League and rightfully sits at the bottom of the standings. While this team managed to earn some points at the start of the season, their points tally has remained unchanged for quite some time now. I don't think they will add to their points in this match either. In their last five matches, Dalian Pro suffered five defeats with a total score of 2-8. It will be practically impossible for them to snatch any points from Beijing Guoan, who are competing for higher positions.

Beijing Guoan are a strong mid-table team in the Chinese Super League that can occasionally contend for medals. Currently, they hold a respectable sixth position in the championship. In their last five matches, Beijing Guoan secured three victories, narrowly defeating Nantong Zhiyun (1-0) and emerging victorious in thrilling encounters against Changchun Yatai (4-3) and Shenzhen FC (6-2). Indeed, the team's strong suit is their home matches. However, in their away matches, they have only managed to win once in five games. Nevertheless, there is hardly any doubt that Beijing Guoan players should defeat the league's main underdog, even when playing away. If not against such a weak opponent, then against whom?
In this match, everything is quite obvious to me: there is a clear favorite and a clear underdog. There is no need to pay attention to the head-to-head statistics because these two teams are currently at completely different levels with different ambitions. The odds for Beijing Guoan's victory are decent solely because the team has appeared weak in away matches so far. However, if they can't defeat the worst team in the league away from home, then who can they beat? Dalian Pro has suffered two defeats in their previous two home matches and has only scored one goal in their last four games. It's far from certain that the hosts will be able to breach the opponent's defense in this match. On the other hand, the visitors should be able to score at least a couple of goals. My bet is on Beijing Guoan to win (W2).
Prediction for the match: Beijing Guoan to win.
