Tianjin Teda will have to persevere if they want to get anything out of Shandong Taishan, who are undoubtedly superior to them in terms of team quality and for whom 90 minutes will seem like an eternity. Will Tianjin Teda crumble or will there be a surprise defeat?
Slowly forging their path in the super league is Tianjin Teda, who are currently occupying a mid-table position, and at the moment have not displayed any signs of inconsistency and, overall, their form has not been bad for a team that was drawn in the relegation round the previous season.
Confident following a 3-0 victory over Shijiazhuang Ever Bright in their most recent match, they will need to demonstrate the same level of tenacity against Shandong Taishan when they clash.
They are up against visitors who have recently posed a threat, so extra effort will be required to secure a win in their scenario. Success at this point will depend on them having the right attitude and level of tenacity.
Even though they have been spectacular, their list of requirements has not yet been met; instead, they are interested in winning first place even as they consistently and impressively post favorable outcomes.
The visitors have won four straight games and are not the type to be intimidated, so this might be their lucky break to halve the four-point deficit they have to Wuhan Three Towns, who are currently in first place.
They are as confident as they can be after crushing Dalian Pro 3-1, but they are up against a familiar foe who, in recent matches, they have dominated in terms of victories, giving them the much-needed justification for an easy victory on the road.
