Both sides were winless in the league recently, with mediocre form.
Shandong Luneng have lost to Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao FC 1-2 in the knockout stage of the Asia Champions League Cup, so they will go all out to win in the 2nd leg next week.
Therefore, Shandong Luneng are likely to make the squad rotation in this match.
Besides, Shandong Luneng’s recent away performance was mediocre. It is hard for them to win in this game.
So the hosts are expected to keep unbeaten in this game.
