Shandong Luneng set for a victory in Zhengzhou

On Friday afternoon, Henan Jianye host Shandong Luneng at the Zhengzhou Hanghai Stadium in the Chinese Super League.

Henan have endured an inconsistent campaign in the Chinese top-flight, having taken just 17 points from their first 16 league games this season. The home sides recent games sum up their league form, as they have won just once in their last eight matches in the Chinese Super League.

They have lost their last two league outings against Guangzhou R&F and last time out Dalian Yifang. The 3-1 defeat last time out ended a run of four straight league games that produced under 2.5 goals for Henan.

Henan’s recent record on home soil in the Chinese Super League is not a great one, as they have won two of their last seven matches. They have been relatively prolific on home soil in the league, scoring at least twice in seven of their last 11 outings.

Shandong Luneng are currently fourth place in the Chinese Super League table. However, the visitors are 12 points outside the AFC Champions League spots and need to put together a strong run of form to catch the top-three in the table.

The visitors have won their last two league outings against Beijing Guoan and Beijing Renhe. Just like the home side, Shandong Luneng’s recent league outings have been low-scoring.

Li Xiaopeng’s team have been highly inconsistent on their travels in the Chinese top-flight, winning just three of their last ten away games. The visitors away matches in the top-flight have been high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in ten of their last 13 matches.

Veteran Italian striker Graziano Pelle has been in top form this season for the visitors, scoring 12 times in his last 13 Chinese Super League appearances.

Forebet predicts that the visitors will record a victory in a low-scoring game to kick-start their chances of a top-three finish.
