Shenzhen FC made the trip to Jinan Olympic Sports Center Stadium with an underdog tag behind their backs as they locked horns with Shandong Taishan, and with nothing much expected from them, they bowed down to a convincing 3:0 defeat.
In that match, there's no denying that they were completely outplayed in all aspects of the game, as they only managed 33% of ball possession while registering only two attempts at goal. They found themselves trailing by a goal in the opening four minutes and had no response whatsoever to find an equalizer for the remainder of the first half, which led to them conceding another two second-half goals to dampen their chances of finding an equalizer.
In their last five matches, they have struck for consistency as they have only one win to their name while recording three losses and a draw to accumulate coir points, and it goes without saying that a more improved display with their performance will be needed moving forward.
In the standings, they presently occupy 10th place with eight points level on points with Zhejiang Professional FC (11th) and Qingdao Hainiu FC (12th), while they are three points adrift of 8th place.
Probable Starting XI
M. Wei; M. Haolun, Y. Mincheng, Y. Boyu, X. Zhou; X. Yue, Z. Yuan, L. Liao; S. Hujahmat, L. Ning, F. Acheampong
Meizhou Hakka FC
Going into this game, Meizhou Hakka FC played host to high-flying Tianjin Teda at the Wuhua Olympic Sports Center Huitang Stadium, and they managed to settle for a more appealing result in front of their fans as they played out a 1:1 draw to share the spoils.
In that match, Yin Hongbo opened the scoring in the 38th minute to give his side the lead before halftime. However, going into the second half, they squandered their one-goal lead to be pegged back by an equalizer with 12 minutes left to spare until the game's conclusion.
In their last five matches, their form has been average, as they have recorded two wins, two losses, and a draw to accumulate seven points in the process.
In the standings, they presently occupy 9th place with nine points, and they have maintained a one-point lead over Shenzhen FC (10th), Zhejiang Professional FC (11th), and Qingdao Hainiu FC (12th), while their bid for an eighth-place finish is hampered by a three-point deficit.

Expert Betting Tips
Shenzhen FC enter this clash with an impressive record at home against Meizhou Hakka FC, as they have only lost one of their last four matches while recording three wins, and surely that can serve as a confidence booster that could see them get back to winning ways and snap their two-match winless run in the Super League.
With this expected to be a tight affair between two sides on equal footing, there's no doubt that this could also turn out to be an entertaining affair too. Both sides enter this clash with a shaky defense that has seen them keep no clean sheet in their last nine matches, and to expect either side to walk away with a clean sheet here will be unrealistic.
Both teams have found the back of the net in five of their last eight matches, and we anticipate the same trend to continue here as well.
