Qingdao Hainiu FC
The Sea Bulls made the trip to Changchun Stadium to lock horns with high-flying Changchun Yatai FC, and they were unfortunate not to have settled for a more appealing result as they succumbed to a 1:0 defeat.
In that match, they controlled 46% of ball possession and registered seven attempts at goal, with only four finding the target, but that wasn't enough to see them find the equalizer they were searching for to level matters after trailing by a goal in the 29th minute of the first half.
In their last five matches, they've struggled for consistency, as they have only one win to their name in the form of a 2:0 win over Meizhou Hakka FC at home while going on to record three losses and a draw to accumulate only four points.
In the standings, they presently occupy 12th place, eight points behind Shenzhen FC (10th) and Zhejiang Professional FC (11th), while they are only two points above the drop zone. Collecting all maximum points here could possibly propel them to 9th place.
Probable Starting XI
P. Mou; L. Junshuai, A. Andrejevic, D. Xu; C. Chen, L. Wei, E. Saric, M. Xingyu, Z. Wei; S. Tabekou, E. Kangwa
Taishan Dui this time around gave their fans something worth cheering about as they managed to snap their five-match winless run by eking out a convincing 3:0 triumph against Shenzhen FC at home to secure all three points...
In that match, an own goal from their opponent witnessed them take the lead in the opening 4 minutes, and two second-half goals from Crysan were confirmation enough that the three points were theirs for the taking, and anything other than a win was surely going to come as a surprise given that they were the superior side in all aspects of the game.
In their last five matches, they too have struggled for consistency, as their performance has been far from convincing, with only one win to their name while going on to record three draws and a loss to accumulate six points.
In the standings, they presently occupy 8th place with eleven points and have maintained a two-point lead over Meizhou Hakka FC in 9th place, while they are three points adrift of 6th place.

W. Dalei; S. Long, Z. Zheng, Jadson, W. Tong; M. Fellaini, L. Lisheng; P. Chen, Moises, G. Sun; Crysan
