Preview: Wuhan Three Towns vs. Hebei - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Sunday's Chinese Super League clash between Wuhan Three Towns and Hebei, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Seeking to pick up a third straight league victory, Wuhan Three Towns will do battle with Hebei at the Hankou Cultural Sports Centre on Sunday.

Meanwhile, the away side head into the game in search of a lift as they still seek their first points of the 2022 Chinese Super League season.


Match preview

Wuhan Three Towns were victorious on home turf for the second game running following a hard-fought 2-1 win over Shanghai Port on Sunday.

Pedro Morilla's men stormed to a 2-0 half-time lead thanks to goals from Marcao and Hang Ren before Cherif Ndiaye pulled one back in the second half.

The Hubei-based outfit currently occupy second place in the league table, one point behind Henan Songshan Longmen having played a game fewer.

Next up is a clash versus an opposing side who will be seeking to exact revenge for a 4-0 defeat in the teams' only previous meeting on June 3.

However, Saturday's hosts head into this weekend's game aiming to record a 12th straight home triumph and will back themselves to get the job done.

Hebei fell to a ninth consecutive loss dating back to last December following a 1-0 defeat to Guangzhou FC at the Jinzhou Stadium on Sunday.

The game was decided midway through the second 45 minutes when Liyu Yang broke the deadlock to settle a nervy and cagey affair in Dalian.

Consequently, Kim Jong-boo's men are 17th in the league standings at the moment, ahead of bottom-place Guangzhou City only on goal difference.

With their last away victory coming over a year ago, Saturday's visitors have it all to do if they are to stop their current slump in form and breathe life into their league campaign.

Team News

Marcao has scored four times in his last four outings for Wuhan Three Towns, and the Brazilian is definitely one to keep an eye on.

Pengfei Xie is expected to retain a starting berth here having marked his return to action with a fourth direct goal involvement in as many games last time out.

Wei Zhang will not play any part for Hebei this weekend off the back of receiving a red card for two bookable offences against Guangzhou FC.

Xuchen Yao is on course to replace Zhang in the lineup after the former had to make do with a cameo appearance in the aforementioned game.

Wuhan Three Towns possible starting lineup:
Liu; Deng, Wallace, Liu, Hang; Xu, Stanciu, Zhang, Xie; Marcao, Ademilson

Hebei possible starting lineup:
Bao; Cui, Zhang, Pan, Liu; Xu, Gao, Yang, Ding, Liao; Yao


SM words green background

We say: Wuhan Three Towns 3-0 Hebei

Both sides are in highly contrasting forms heading into this one, and the home side will be keen to exert their superiority over the visitors with another dominant display here. We fancy Wuhan to cruise to a comfortable victory come the end of the 90 minutes.
