FBG vs UL Dream11 Match Preview: This is the back-to-back game between these two teams with Fubon Guardians the host once again against Uni-Lions in the Chinese Professional Baseball League on Wednesday (IST).
There’s nothing separating these two teams at the moment with both holding an identical return on the season from 23 games, winning 10 and losing 13 times. In a league dominated by Rakuten Monkeys, who are sitting atop the power rankings with a 16-6 return on the season, both Guardians and Lions are already facing a six-game deficit at the top of the table and that too having played a game more than the defending champions.
That said, both Guardians and Lions are in a position to grab the second place currently being occupied by Chinatrust Brothers who hold two games advantage but have played two extra games as well.
Date- Tuesday, May 19
Time- 03:10 PM (IST)
The hosts may be third on the table but they must be high on confidence heading into this game, and why not, they are coming into this match on the back of a big win over Rakuten Monkeys, beating the reigning champions 9-7 to show what they actually can do on the field. With that win, the Guardians improved to 10-13 on the season. The Guardians will be satisfied with the result and could opt for a similar lineup.
As for the Uni Lions, one or two changes may be expected considering the form they are in at the moment. They have won just two games in the last five matches and are propping up the table at the moment. In the most recent result, they were beaten 9-19 by the Chinatrust Brothers.
Fubon Guardians (Expected Playing Lineup)- Jian Zhixian, C Yung-Chi, Gao Guolin, S Chih-Chieh, Hu Jinlong, Zhang Zhangwei, K Fu lin, Wang Zhengtang, Lin Yiquan
Uni-Lions (Expected Playing Lineup)- Chen Chong-Yu, D Pei Feng, L An-Ko, Chen Jixian, S Chih-Chieh, C Cheng Wei, F Kuo–Chen, C Chih Hsein, Su Zhijie
Chen Jixian has been one of the most consistent players for the Uni Lions this season and will once again be the key for the team’s chances in this match. He could be an important addition on today match prediction for the Dream11 players who are looking for some solid options.
For the Fubon Guardians Hu Jinglong has bagged three runs from three hits in the previous encounter and will be eager to score a few more later today. His inclusion in the Dream11 Match Prediction side could earn the user a decent amount of points.
For the Uni Lions, the likes of Su Zhijie and Lin An-ko who got three runs while combining together and should retain their spots here.
Dai Peifeng as the catcher would be a safe option. As for Lin Yiquan, he has scored three runs from the last four games and is expected to start for his side.
The Fubon Guardians recorded a huge win in the last game against Rakuten Monkeys, but more than the win, it was perhaps the profile of the team they beat which should give them enough fuel for the next few weeks. That’s why backing Guardians to win this game looks a good call.
