Hebei take on the visitors Shandong Luneng at “Qinhuangdao Olympic Sports Center Stadium” in the round 15 of the Chinese Super League. The game will be played in Qinhuangdao on Saturday, July 1st.
Hebei followed the eight-match undefeated streak by two back-to-back losses to Guangzhou Evergrande: 0:1 in the FA Cup and 0:2 in the Super League. As a result, after 14 gameweeks Manuel Pellegrini‘s side occupies the third position in the standings with 28 points earned and 23-13 goal difference. Hebei demonstrate impressive performance at the home ground: six triumphs in six clashes played with 18 points taken and 14-3 goal difference. The team’s unbeaten home run consists of eight encounters and has been lasting since the 23rd of September 2016.

On the contrary, Shandong Luneng have not been broken in three recent games: the side defeated Tianjin Teda with 1:0 scoreline in the FA Cup and in the Serie A it got 3:0 victory over Liaoning with 2:2 draw against Guizhou Hengfeng Zhicheng F.C. After 13 rounds in the elite division Felix Magath’s team sits on the fourth place in the table with 24 points gained and 23-13 goal difference. Shandong Luneng participated in five matches on the road resulting in seven points earned, eight goals for and five goals against.
The head-to-heads history of Hebei and Shandong Luneng counts for two clashes ending in favour of the hosts: Hebei won with 2:1 scoreline while Shandong Luneng recorded 1:0 victory. Taking into consideration the head-to-heads statistics, plus the rivals’ results in this season, I believe that the hosting side at least will pick up some points.
Prediction for the match: Hebei to win with 0.0 Asian handicap.
