Shandong Taishan to win the game
Shandong Taishan look to extend their supremacy at the top of group A with yet another victory. This would be their fourth on the bounce and it is a superior form shown by any other outfit in the group. Guangzhou City are also on a three-game winning streak, but they have had a much easier run coming into the game with two of the games against strugglers Qingdao and Cangzhou Mighty Lions. Shandong Taishan have a great record against Guangzhou by winning four out of the last six games without any defeat.
Total goals more than 2.5
The goals from Shandong Taishan's matches against Guangzhou might have dipped in recent matches with only two goals in the last three outings. However, this has traditionally been one of the stronger fixtures for Shandong Taishan, who have 13 goals in the last six games. Even in terms of recent form, Hao Wei has seen his team average almost 3 goals per game.
Marouane Fellaini to score anytime
Throughout the campaign, Marouane Fellaini has been in excellent form and the midfielder has been able to get eight goals in 12 matches for the club. His brace against Shenzhen means that he has now scored four goals in his last three matches. After having hurt Guangzhou even in the past, Fellaini is a good pick to score anytime.
