Taishan Dui were favorites in their recent match on the road against Dalian Pro in the league to claim maximum points, but to everybody's surprise, they only managed to salvage a point in a goalless draw.
However, a return match in the Chinese FA Cup semi-final against the same team, Dalian Pro, saw them rectify their mistakes in fashionable style, as goals from Matheus Pato and Marouane Fellaini saw them record a comfortable 2-0 on the road.
Having played three consecutive away matches in all competitions, they will be glad to return to home comforts, where their last match saw them edge out Qingdao Hainiu 4-2. Their performance at home has been impressive, as they have collected 32 points from a possible 39, in which ten wins, two draws, and a solitary loss have been recorded.
They currently occupy second place with 48 points, three points ahead of third-placed Shanghai Shenhua and fourth-placed Zhejiang Professional FC. Their aspirations for a first-place finish are hindered by an eight-point deficit.
Probable Starting XI
D. Wang; X. Ji, Jadson, K. Shi, G. Sun; Z. Huang, L. Liao; C. Zhang, M. Magalhães, P. Chen; M. Fellaini
Wuhan Three Towns
Tsutomu Takahata took a miscalculated risk, which saw him field out some of his regular lineup in a match against Tianjin Teda, and despite rectifying his mistakes, it was a bit late for a turnaround as they lost 1-0 at home in a match where they were considered favorites.
Before that, they squandered a one-goal lead in the latter stages against the Urawa Red Diamonds in the AFC Champions League group stage campaign to be held to a nail-biting 2-2 draw on home turf; however, not all was lost as they managed to pick up a point.
Their last away match in the league was a 1-0 win against Chengdu Rongcheng FC on August 19th. This win managed to halt a three-match winless run where two losses and a draw were recorded. There's no doubt that they have struggled for consistency, as they have picked up five wins, four draws, and three losses in twelve matches to accumulate 19 points from a possible 36.
They currently occupy seventh place with 42 points in the standings, six points behind sixth-placed Beijing Guoan and six points behind their opponents in this impending encounter in second place.

Expert Betting Tips
Shandong Taishan is the better side on paper at the moment and should be able to come out on top at home against a side whose performance tends to flounder at times.
Wuhan Three Towns have failed to step up to the plate when it matters most, and there's little reason to think they'll pose a difficult challenge in this competitive match.
As such, we anticipate the home side to pick up another three-pointer, which should come easy having suffered just one defeat in thirteen home matches.
