Team News: Shanghai Shenhua
There is just the sole fitness concern for the Shanghai Shenhua gaffer Wu Jingui to be concerned about thanks to an otherwise robust group. Xi Wu (Fractured Rib) is sidelined.
Team News: Meizhou Hakka
Due to a mostly healthy squad, there’s just the one fitness problem for the Meizhou Hakka gaffer Milan Ristic to be concerned with. Yihu Yang (Calf Strain) misses out for this game.
Our feeling is that Meizhou Hakka and Shanghai Shenhua may well end up cancelling each other out here.
We’ll see, but this looks like it could end up all-square. That is why we are leaning toward a very close game with a 1-1 draw at the conclusion of the game.
