Wuhan Three Towns
The reigning champions made the trip to Tianjin Olympic Center Stadium to lock horns with Tianjin Teda, a side that they've gotten the better of by winning three consecutive matches, but this time around fortune wasn't on their side to see them extend that winning run to four matches as they were held to a 1:1 draw.
In that match, Ademilson's goal in the opening 5 minutes of the first half sparked some hope that they were going to win the match in a convincing manner; however, Wang Qiuming's equalizer nine minutes later saw all those hopes dashed.
Pedro Morilla's men have only recorded one win in their last seven matches, a thumping 5:0 win against Nantong Zhiyun FC on the road, while picking up five draws and a loss in the process to accumulate eight points, which, realistically speaking, has seen them in inconsistent form for a side of their caliber.
They currently occupy 8th place with 15 points and are two points adrift of a 5th place finish, while they have maintained a one-point lead over Zhejiang Professional FC in 9th place.
Probable Starting XI
D.Liu; Deng, Y. Liu, Wallace, Gao; Xie, Yan, Zhang, Stanciu, Wei; Ademilson
Shandong Taishan gave their fans something worth celebrating in their recent match against out-of-form Dalian Pro at home, as they romped to a comfortable 2:0 win thanks to goals from Marouane Fellaini and Huang Zhengyu.
In that match, Marouane Fellaini broke the impasse in the 36th minute, which was later followed by Huang Zhengyu's goal in first-half stoppage time. The second half saw decent chances being created, but they lacked the cutting edge to convert. However, there's no denying that they played up to the required standards, managing 56% of ball possession.
Consistency has been their middle name in the last six matches as they have yet to suffer defeat, recording three losses and three wins to accumulate 12 points, and they'll be looking to extend their unbeaten run to seven matches, though it won't be as easy as anticipated given their opponent in this clash. It's also worth noting that they are currently on a three-match winning streak.
They currently occupy 6th place with 17 points, where they find themselves in a rat race against Beijing Guoan FC (5th) and Changchun Yatai FC (7th), with whom they are level on points in the standings for what could be a possible 4th place finish, and collecting all three points here will be crucial.

Expert Betting Tips
Wuhan Three Towns have been having some difficulties when it comes to picking up wins this season as they have been swamped with nothing but draws, and getting back to winning ways will be at the top of their bucket list.
Shandong Taishan are in high spirits as they have started to show signs of a consistent form that currently has them on a three-match winning streak and will seek to extend that run to four consecutive matches.
However, their away form spells a different scenario, suggesting that they'll be in for an arduous task in their bid to record their fourth consecutive victory, as they have only won one of their last seven matches on the road, and it's still to be seen how they'll fare out in this clash.
Both sides have not been one to shy away from finding the back of the net this season as they have been in good goal-scoring form, scoring consistently, and such a trend is to be expected here where both teams will be able to get on the scoreboard in what could turn out to be a highly entertaining affair.
