Tianjin Quanjian and Wuhan Zall face at Tianjin Olympic Center Stadium, in a match for the 26th round of the CSL. Wuhan Zall won at home by (2‑1) the last time they met in this edition of the league, on 25‑05-2019. Wuhan Zall presents considerable differences in his results at home and as a visitor, so in this match the home factor can be decisive.
Tianjin Quanjian :
The home team is currently in 15th position, with 18 points won, after 2 wins, 12 draws and 11 losses. In the penultimate match, he lost out against Guangzhou R&F by (2‑1). In the last match, he lost at home against Beijing Guoan by (0‑3). This is a team little affected by the home factor, that is, it presents similar results at home and away, since in the last 30 matches it records 2 wins, 6 draws and 7 losses as a visitor, with 22 goals scored and 27 suffered; against 2 wins, 8 draws and 5 losses in his stadium, with 18 goals scored and 27 suffered. For the championship, Tianjin Quanjian conquered 9 points in 30 possible, after 1 win, 6 draws and 3 losses in the last 10 games he played in his stadium. His defense has not been very solid, since he suffered goals in 8 of the last 10 games, but his attack has scored regularly, since he scored goals in 8 of the last 10 games for this competition. In 25 games in this tournament, he suffered the first goal 11 times and never got the comeback.
The Tianjin Quanjian team will attack this final part of the championship to ensure maintenance and save themselves, after a very poor campaign in the first 25 rounds. Seeking to ensure salvation, the club’s management has renounced the services of Park Choong-Kyun, from South Korea, who leaves the team with only one victory in 14 league games. Without winning five consecutive games and with losses in the last two days, a month ago, against Guangzhou R&F (2-1), and against Beijing Guoan (3-0), Tianjin Quanjian promoted former assistant coach Liu Xueyu to the position of main coach, with the aim of reaching Shenzhen and arriving in time to stay in the elite of Chinese football in the next season.
The visiting team is currently in the 6th position, with 37 points won, after 10 wins, 7 draws and 8 losses. In the penultimate match, he won at home against Dalian Yifang by (1‑0). In the last match, he won out against Guangzhou Evergrande by (0-1). This is a team that curiously conquers more positive results as a visitor than at home, since in the last 30 matches it records 6 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses as a visitor, with 18 goals scored and 24 suffered; against 5 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses in his stadium, with 16 goals scored and 15 suffered. In his last 10 games as a visitor to the championship, Wuhan Zall records 5 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses, so he won 17 points in 30 possible. In their matches for the league as a visitor the most frequent final result at the break was 0-0 (6 in 13 games). His attack has scored regularly, as he scored goals in 8 of the last 10 games for this competition. In 25 games in this tournament, he suffered the first goal 10 times and only got 2 comebacks.
The Wuhan Zall has already mathematically guaranteed maintenance, achieving the great goal in a season that marked the return of the club to the main league, after his absence since 2013. The early team showed arguments to make a good campaign, based on the balance between offensive and defensive performance, highlighting the work of coach Lie Tie, who has been in charge of the team for approximately two years. Looking to finish the league with the highest possible ranking, Wuhan Zall knows in advance that he will have the best performance in his history in the first division and arrives at this match after three consecutive victories, against Shandong Luneng (2-1), Dalian Yifang (1-0) and Guangzhou Evergrande (1-0).
