Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just the lone fitness concern for the Shanghai Shenhua manager Kang-hee Choi to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed group of players. Chenjie Zhu (Tibia Fracture) will miss out.

Due to a completely injury-free squad to choose from, Shanghai SIPG boss Ivan Leko does not have any fitness worries to report before this clash.
We believe that Shanghai SIPG have it within them to be in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of their chances.
However, Shanghai Shenhua could well find it tough getting goals although we think that they will probably end up scoring as well.
