Beijing Guoan are favourites to win

We are backing the Chinese side to start their AFC Champions League campaign with a win. While United FC has been in form, scoring 24 goals in the last four games, the quality that Beijing Guoan brings to this fixture is above par. Beijing Guoan will most rely on their experienced midfield to get all points in this match. United FC hasn’t played much at this level and things could get worse with the new English coach, Jason Lee Withe. Jason Lee previously managed Thai's side, Jumpasri United, where he lost all 11 games and averaged 0.00 points.

Both teams will find the net

Scoring lots of goals in previous matches should be a source of confidence and motivation for United City FC. The Philippine side has netted 24 goals in the last four games. They come into this fixture after a 2-1 loss to AFC Champions League debutants, Kaya Iloilo. Beijing Guian has scored in all their last four matches despite losing two and winning twice. While we think the Chinese team will win this game, a shaky defence is why we are backing United City to also find the net.

Lots of goals expected

This should be a high scoring match given how both sides have fared in recent matches. United City FC is in great scoring form even though they face a tougher opponent in Beijing Guoan. Despite keeping two clean-sheet victories before this fixture, Beijing Guoan defence is quite unpredictable. With that in mind, there should be lots of goals between these teams.

Game Preview: Can Beijing Guoan Overcome their AFC Champions League Setback in 2020 for a Better Campaign in 2021?

Beijing Guoan hopes for a strong comeback to the AFC Champions League after they lost 2-0 at the knockout stage in 2020 to returning champions, Ulsan Hyundai. More details in our match preview below.

United City FC

United City FC will bank their hopes on Jason Lee Withe, a coach whose career doesn’t reflect much of an achiever to edge out Beijing Guoan. Jason Lee averaged 0.62 points per match when he managed Thai’s team, Songkhla United FC for three months in 2014 before moving to Jumpasri United (also in Thailand). At Jumpasri, he lost all 11 games after two months in charge and would later join United FC where he will be at the dugout for the first time against Beijing Guoan. For United City FC fans, all eyes will be on the English tactician in the hope that he can pull a win against Beijing Guoan.

Beijing Guoan

Two consecutive victories with a similar scoreline of 2-0 before this game should give Beijing Guoan all the confidence they need for a good start in the 2021 AFC Champions League. The Chinese outfit will put behind their 2020  AFC Champions League woes that saw them bundled out at the knockout stage by Ulsan Hyundai. Head coach, Slaven Bilic, took over Beijing Guoan in January this year and has since been on the dugout four times. The Croatian tactician has won twice and lost two games, translating to 1.50 points per match. He previously managed West Bromwich Albion where here averaged 1.52 points per match in 65 games before moving to China.
